Recipe: The Drinks Master, Sandy Kenneway’s Affa Funcy G&T

Serves: 1

Cooks in: Overnight

Difficulty: Medium


60ml gin
20ml Grapefruit oleo sacrum
2 dashes Dr. Adam Elmegirab Orinoco Bitters

Build in highball glass ½ filled with ice.
Stir and top with ice.

Fill glass with Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic.
Garnish –grapefruit twist.


The G&T is the world’s favourite cocktail, and with good reason; simple and easily made at home. Here we ramp it up with an injection of bright grapefruit and balance this with a Mediterranean herbal edge.


1. Prepare a grapefruit oleo sacrum; Take the skin off 2 grapefruit with a y-peeler. Add to a bowl and muddle with 100g caster sugar.

2. Cover and leave for a minimum of 2 hours, but overnight is preferable.

3. Once the sugar has done its job and extracted the oils (you will have a thick liquid and peel in the bowl now), juice the fruit, add to the mixture and warm gently in a saucepan (don’t boil) until all the sugar has dissolved.

4. Allow to cool, run through a tea strainer/sieve and bottle. This will keep in the fridge for 2 to 3 weeks and is great as a cordial when mixed with soda.

Clap for appreciation
