  • 2 oz Tanqueray No. TEN Gin
  • 1 oz Fermented Pineapple Cordial*
  • 2 dashes Bittered Sling Grapefruit & Hops Bitters
  • 6 mint leaves plus sprig for garnish


  • Add all the ingredients to a shaker
  • Add ice
  • Shake until cold and frosty on the outside
  • Double strain neat into a coupe glass
  • Garnish with a grapefruit cheek with a threaded mint sprig


Fermented Pineapple Cordial* (makes 500ml)

  • 100g pineapple chunks
  • 300g sugar (any sugar – white, raw, other)
  • 200ml water
  • 10g citric acid powder (or 250ml lemon or lime juice)
Add the pineapple chunks and sugar to a non-reactive container, close the lid. Store at room temperature, mixing and “burping” the container to expel any gas – the mix will start to ferment after 24 hours. For a robust flavour, ferment for 48-72 hours. Add all to a bowl, add the water. Stir until the sugar and water is combined. Micro filter to remove the pineapple pieces and debris, stir in acid until combined. Store in a bottle or clean container in the cooler up to 7 days.
