Citizen Reporter

The floral and citrus flavours of this drink would be best paired with a fragrant fish dish.

1 Sugarbird Fynbos Original Gin Egg (25ml) – available at Pick n Pay
Slice of grapefruit
Indian Tonic
1 cup sugar
1 cup water


1. Create a simple syrup by dissolving 1 cup of sugar in 1 cup of water in a pot on the stove.

2. When the sugar has dissolved, add a few sprigs of rosemary and a small handful of berries.

3. Once the syrup has taken on the colour of the berries, you can remove the berries and the rosemary. Cool completely before use.

4. In a coupe glass (or your favourite cocktail glass), mix the Sugarbird Cape Fynbos Gin Egg with a single shot of infused simple syrup.

5. Top with Indian Tonic and some ice cubes. Drop in a few berries, a sprig of rosemary and a halved slice of grapefruit.
