Nick Strangeway’s P & P Purl

Part one in our series of winter warming cocktails to mix up at home. Here Nick Strangeway creates two very British cocktails using Beefeater gin…

P & P Purl

200ml Hix IPA
100ml Hix Oyster Ale
25ml Beefeater Gin
3 tablespoon of Ginger Syrup (taken from a jar of stem ginger in syrup)

Warm the ingredients in a pan until piping hot and then pour into a tankard and grate over nutmeg.

50ml Saffron Infused Beefeater Gin
25ml Pedro Jimenez Sherry
10ml Spiced Sugar
1 whole egg

To make Saffron infused Beefeater infuse 5-6 strands of Saffron in a bottle of Beefeater overnight and then strain. Lightly beat the egg in a bowl. In a pan heat the Gin, Sherry and Sugar until almost boiling. Then add a small amount to the egg and stir. Then add the rest little by little so as to avoid scrambling the egg.

Finally when all the egg is incorporated pour the mix from one pan to another to mix and serve while still hot. Dust with grated nutmeg.
