The JoJo Collins
It was whilst running a cocktail night in one of the Forager’s gin approved stockists, The High Street Deli, that we wanted to create something that blended together Forager’s Gin, classic cocktails, and something they had on their shelves. Thankfully they had Er Boqueron, a Spanish artisan beer made from natural ingredients, using Mediterranean Sea water from an area near Valencia.
Replacing plain soda, with Er Boqueron beer, a super-fun high-octane version of the classic was born. Its name – well it had to be named super-fun, high-octane JoJo Thompson – Co-owner of the High Street Deli where the night was held.
To make the JoJo Collins combine in a mixing glass:
45ml of Forager’s Black Label Gin
25ml Freshly squeezed lemon juice
20ml of quality Gomme (sugar syrup)
1 or 2 dashes of Angostura orange bitters
Stir until nicely chilled. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass. Top up with Er Boqueron, serve with a straw, and garnish with lemon twist and a single thyme sprig.
