Shaken Gin with Smashed Pear and Lemon


Nothing helps the prospect of work the next day a little more digestible than a sun downer on the balcony on a Saturday afternoon.  We tried this new refresher at the weekend and is now my new way of taking the classic G&T. 

Ingredients: 60ml Bombay Sapphire, 1 ripe American Red Pear, ½ fresh lemon.

Directions: Cut/Smash fruit releasing juice, add gin, top shaker with ice - shake intensely (until shaker is frosting). Strain into hi-ball glasses (with fresh ice) top with Bitter Lemon. Garnish and serve (preferably at sunset!)
