Dedalus cocktail
...Make delicious cocktails!

As we spend most of our days indoors to protect lives, here is a fantastic (and easy) cocktail recipe created by our Head Bartender Pasquale at Manetta's Bar, which is best enjoyed on a sunny balcony or in your favourite, comfortable chair.


You will need:
- 5 basil leaves
- 5 white grapes
- 10ml (see step one!)
- 20ml lemon juice
- 30ml Chase Gin (any other gin would work too) 
- A dash of Sauvignon Blanc

Step 1: to make the sugar syrup, dissolve 150g of caster sugar in 75ml water over low heat. Leave to cool and bottle for future use in cocktails. Store in the fridge.

Step 2: crush the white grapes and basil leaves in a cocktail shaker. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the wine) with some ice and shake well. Double strain in a champagne glass (a wine glass will work too!) and top up with Sauvignon Blanc. Garnish with fresh basil and white grapes.
