Having previously launched bars that include The Hoxton Pony and Baroque at the Playboy Club, Gerry Calabrese – son of world-famous barman Salvatore Calabrese – has created Hoxton Gin. Distilled with coconut and grapefruit, it would be fair to say that his riff on gin is exotic and somewhat wildly contemporary.
Combining Hoxton Gin with Aperol, Sauvignon Blanc, lemon and grapes, the ‘Hoxton Cooler’ is one of the signature libations associated with the spirit and we have the very simple recipe for readers to try at home this weekend.
10ml Lemon juice
20ml Sauvignon Blanc
30ml Hoxton Gin
Muddle, shake and strain over cubed ice.
Garnish with a lemon wedge, grape and a mint sprig.
