Karen Walker's Designer Cocktail Recipe
Here's how to make this Sapphire and Alexander cocktail
To celebrate The Marr Factory 2015, Bombay Sapphire brand ambassador Chase Bickerton has created a series of bespoke cocktails inspired by each designer’s collection. Each will be available at the designer's show throughout the week - but you can replicate them at home with Chase's recipes.
KAREN WALKER'S 'SAPPHIRE & ALEXANDER'
"From the first dress featured in the look book, I instantly knew where I wanted to go with this drink – 70’s & liquorice, but like Karen’s collection, the lead botanical of liquorice root isn’t an overt flavour and works in unison with other elements to create a functional yet glamorous whole piece. The Alexander is one of my favourite drinks, made famous during this period of time and I will take any opportunity I can to turn a drink some shade of blue!"
- 30ml Bombay Sapphire
- 20ml blueberry liqueur
- 7.5ml blue curacao
- 2.5ml maraschino liqueur
- 30ml So Good Almond & Coconut milk
- Liquorice infused Absinthe spray over the glass
- Three liquorice roots cold-infused over three days
Shake all the above ingredients hard and strain into a frosted coupe glass that has been misted with absinthe. Garnish with a lemon zest and icing sugar dusted mint.
