How to Make the Bombay Sapphire Laverstoke

To celebrate the opening of the Bombay Sapphire Distillery at Laverstoke Mill in 2014, Sam Carter, the Bombay Sapphire Brand Ambassador, has created this future classic in the making: Bombay Sapphire with Martini Bianco, Bottlegreen elderflower cordial, lime wedges then topped it off with Fever-Tree ginger ale.


You can adapt this cocktail with the seasons by changing the Vermouth you use along with adding a spritz of different citrus peel and a few seasonal berries. Keep everything else the same. Sam feels these combinations work best: Autumn Martini Extra Dry (lime peel/blue berries), Winter Martini Rosso (orange peel/blackberries), Spring Martini Bianco (lemon peel/raspberries), Summer Rosato (grapefruit peel/strawberries).
