I think this is the kind of cocktail which has in-depth flavours as to sourness which can be transformed perfectly into a balanced sweetness and fruitiness with richberry. The addition of slight cognac adds oaky vanilla flavor. Try this one with richberry and you're gonna stay up late enjoying the taste.
1½ oz (44 ml) gin
½ oz (15 ml) cognac
¾ oz (22 ml) fresh lemon juice
Orange slice, for garnish
Luxardo cherry, for garnish
In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin, cognac, lemon juice and simple syrup and shake with ice. Strain into a highball glass over ice, top with sparkling water and garnish with the orange slice and cherry.
Mocktail (non-alcoholic): If you wish to have a delicious non-alcoholic version, please feel free to take the alcohol out and follow the same procedure.
Consume Miracle Berry: Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.
Fact: The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.
