Unfortunately I didn't made pictures...
Cucumber & Coriander G&T with Strawberry
Darcy: Strawberry & coriander share similar aroma compounds; coriander is further very common in gin.
Darcy emulsified coriander essential oil in simple syrup, he was using for the drink.
That we quite a slam-dunk - most guest liked it. It was very refreshing and very cool - we used Plymouth for it, which was definitely a great company with the drink.
Cardamon & Mint G&T
Darcy used the popularity of the Mojito, to "capture" guests - the cardamom syrup (again made with essential oils and emulsification) was giving it a more unique and Middle Eastern flair - basically there was only cardamom syrup, gin, mint, lemon and tonic water involved.
Again very refreshing, with a distinctive oriental note. We used partly Plymouth and Bombay Sapphire for it and both gins worked very well.
Orange Blossom G&T
Darcy's recipe included gin, Campari Bitter, little bit syrup, orange blossom water and East Imperial Yuzu Tonic.
A drink with a girly pink color, but a taste which isn't girly at all... the Campari highlights the bitterness... very interesting - would be a cool aperitivo. Overall the drink sports a very floral aroma - which is not for everyone - but was definitely a favorite for some.
Darcy infused cinchona bark in gin (with the help of a vortex vacuum magnet stirrer).
I tried the infusion, and it was ultra bitter and covered up all botanicals of the gin...
He called it a G&T which you would have had way back in time...
The rest was just Plymouth gin, lime and East Imperial tonic water.
Lime & Juniper G&T
Darcy: "Make a highball using gin, tonic and lime-juniper syrup to make asoda style gin and tonic.
