HELLO YOU. FORMALITIES FIRST; ARE YOU OF LEGAL DRINKING AGE IN YOUR COUNTRY?

No

RUDE NOT TO

Get 50ml of Polarity’s Bittersweet Gin from the freezer and pour into a rocks glass. Ice optional. Garnish with a lemon coin.

Smooth and simple, just like our co-founder likes it, while snacking on juniper cones.

SAFFRON SEDUCTION

How do you make a martini even more sophisticated? Infuse it with Saffron, darl. This radiant elixir has a surprisingly rich texture, and leaves a subtle hint of bitterness in its wake. Well, don’t we all.

Grab:
60ml Polarity BitterSweet Gin
5ml Tio Pepe Sherry
5ml homemade Saffron Infused Vermouth*

Now for the fun part:
Add it all to a mixing glass full of ice.
Stir until ice cold and pour into a chilled glass.
Garnish with a lemon coin. Aim for -4°C.

*Add 0.5g of saffron to a full bottle of Dry Vermouth and leave to infuse in a cool dry place for 2 hours. Strain, add 50g of sugar, pinch of sea salt and mix until dissolved. Store in fridge for your future martini festivities.

Prefer the only slightly twisted classic Martini?
Add 60ml of Polarity BitterSweet gin, 10ml of Dry Vermouth and 3 drops of Orange Bitters to a mixing glass full of ice.
Stir until ice cold and pour into a chilled glass.
Garnish with a lemon coin.
Always delicious, but ideal at -4°C.

SUNSET NEGRONI

25 ml Ginger Wine
10 ml Campari
Dash of Angostura Orange Bitters

BEATRIX KIDDO

Delightfully deceptive in its smooth, peachy keen, nectarous delicacy. This is a sweet, welcoming blonde that could absolutely beat the crap out of you. Quite the bombshell, indeed.

50ml Polarity BitterSweet Gin
5ml / 1 tsp Peach Liqueur
25ml Lemon Juice
15ml Egg White / Aquafaba
25 ml homemade Polarity Syrup*

Now for the fun part:
Shake it all hard with ice, and fine strain into a wine glass full of ice.

*We’re not making this easy are we? But we are making it extra delicious …
This recipe makes some more of the syrup for emergency stopper spinning sessions. So, toast 5 star anises, 2 cloves and 10 peppercorns. Leave for 15 minutes in 300ml boiling water with 3 chamomile teabags. Fine strain and top up to 300ml with more boiling water. Add honey to 600ml and stir until mixed. Store in fridge.

NICK OF THYME

Treat yourself to a citrus serenade with this upgraded G&T, infused with a zesty lemongrass syrup. So fresh and moreish, you’ll gloss over the potent trojan horse. A refreshing livener that will leave you saying, “there is no perfection, only gin.”

Grab:
50ml Polarity BitterSweet Gin
75ml Indian Tonic Water
20ml homemade Lemongrass Cordial*

Now for the fun part:
Build in a highball glass with lots of ice.
Garnish with a thyme sprig.

*Blend the following bits and pieces on high for 30 secs: 1 lemon zest (peel sharply to avoid white pith), juice from 5 lemons, 150g sugar, 100ml water and 2 lemongrass stalks. Strain and store in fridge. Makes a bit more than you need for a solo drink, but trust us – you’ll need it.
