Summer Cocktails at El Fenn
Watching the sun go down on our roof terrace is arguably our favourite time of day at El Fenn. Just add one of these cocktails and it might just be one of life’s perfect pairings. We like to make the most of seasonal fruits when we create our summer cocktails and the El Fenn mixologists have put together three delicious drinks for you to try at home. One combines orange and lime with fragrant rosemary and another muddles basil and pineapple, the ultimate summer flavours.
El Fenn Sunrise
Rosemary and orange peel infused tequila 6CL
Freshly squeezed lime juice 2CL
Fresh orange juice 5CL
Sugar syrup 1CL
Angostura – 2 dashes
Bash a sprig of rosemary and add it, plus a few strips of orange peel, to the tequila. Leave it – ideally overnight – to infuse.
Add all the ingredients to a shaker with ice, shake and strain before garnishing with orange peel and rosemary.
