The cold season is upon us. I’ve had it, most of the team at work has had it. With the Christmas season beginning to gear up I wanted this week’s FNC to be slightly festive but also feel like it was doing you good.
Last March, LCS had a night about Kamm & Sons. I’m quite a fan of Kamm & Sons and I remember Alex Kammerling talking about the connection between alcohol and medicine and that he’d only had one cold in 6 years, which was as long as he’d been working on Kamm & Sons.
So I wanted to include Kamm & Sons and I wanted it to feel a bit like a Bucks Fizz. For years, I’ve been adding a slug of triple sec to the orange juice and fizz*, which really improves it but makes it slightly more dangerous to drink in quantity! I didn’t feel orange juice was going to work here but I had a grapefruit in the fruit bowl. So this was born.
1/2 oz of gin
1oz Kamm & Sons
2 1/2 oz of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1) Pour the Kamm & Sons, gin and grapefruit juice into a chilled flute.
2) Gently stir
3) Top up (carefully) with chilled proscecco.
*As a general rule I never use Champagne in a Bucks Fizz..unless there’s Champagne left over from the night before and that hardly ever happens.
