Hazel Club

Hazel Club

Created for National Mammal Week, in celebration of the tiny, endangered Hazel Dormouse, the Hazel Club Cocktail is inspired by the classic Clover Club Cocktail.

We’re incredibly proud to be able to support the epic conservation work the PTES do to help protect these little furry friends, through sales of our Raspberry gin.

Recipe

Method

  1. Add all the ingredients to a shaker filled with ice and shake for a good 10 seconds.
  2. Strain out liquid into one half of the shaker and discard the ice from the second part.
  3. Shake again (with no ice this time) for another 10 seconds - this allows the egg white to create that beautiful fluffy texture.
  4. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with mint.

How to make the Hazelnut syrup:

  1. Take 1 cup of hazelnuts and toast them in a pan for around 6 minutes on a medium heat. You’ll know they’re done when the skin begins to crumble.
  2. Put them in a clean tea towel and cover, then leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Rustle the tea towel vigorously for 1 minute and then reveal the ‘naked hazelnuts’ (the shell/skin should have fallen off).
  4. Put them in a bag and crush them until they’re all crumbled.
  5. Make the sugar syrup by dissolving the sugar into the water (the best way to do this is to heat it up in your pan on a medium heat).
  6. When the syrup has formed, add the hazelnuts and bring to the boil.
  7. After 2 minutes of it being on a rolling boil, take it off the heat, and let it cool.
  8. Leave it covered in the fridge over night to let it ‘infuse’.
  9. Strain the liquid through a muslin cloth/clean tea towel.
  10. Store the liquid in a bottle and in the fridge.
