About this Cocktail

Took me a long time to finally find this French gin. Saffron and cardamom will always work well together. Orange ties it all nicely.

  • 40 ml Boudier Saffron Gin
  • 40 ml saffron cardamom syrup
  • Slice of orange
  • Tonic
  • For saffron cardamom syrup:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Pinch of saffron
  • 5 cardamom pods

For the saffron cardamom syrup:
Boil water with sugar till dissolved, add saffron and cardamom and simmer for 5 minutes.

Shake gin and syrup, pour over ice and orange slice, top with tonic.

    Outstanding. Used fever tree tonic and found this to be the best drink I've made with the saffron gin. Thank you
