In honor of Valentines week, we’ve crafted a cocktail with some of our favorite ingredients that lend both their botanical benefits and their beauty to this rosy hued stunner! The Blushing Botanical is a gin cocktail made with pomegranate, lemon, and our newest beverage obsession, Wolffer No.139 Botanical Cider infused by Mab & Stoke. The cider is delicious on its own, but we think it’s absolutely fantastic as a mixer, lending a delightful complexity with its herbaceous and fruitful notes. Pleasantly tart and extra refreshing, this cocktail is sure to win the affection of its sippers 😍 Enjoy!
1 oz pomegranate juice*
Juice of 1 lemon
3 oz gin
6 oz Wolffer Botanical Cider**
Pomegranate arils and a lemon twist for garnish
*You can use store bought, but we like to make fresh pomegranate juice by slicing fruit in half and juicing with a citrus reamer.
** Wolffer Botanical Cider can be purchased directly from Wolffer.com and is available in most
Whole Foods and Trader Joes in New York and New Jersey. If you can’t find it near you, you can substitute another dry hard cider that you enjoy!
Add fruit juices and gin to a shaker or jar filled with ice. Shake until chilled. Pour evenly into two glasses. Top each cocktail with 3 oz of cider and garnish with pomegranate arils and a lemon wheel or twist.
