Congratulations! You’ve found a secret note space. This area will be updated soon.
This is just a work-in-progress article, a fully-fledged version with tasting notes, pictures and spelling/grammar corrections will be posted next week.
I’m working on a full article for Organic Fruit Cup following a request on Twitter.
I was surprised that there appears to be no organic vermouth available in the UK, I wonder if organic wormwood is hard to find or something?
So I am currently making my own organic flavour-infused aromatized wine that I can then mix with Organic Gin/Vodka/ whisky to make a fruit cup that I can then mix with Organic Lemonade.
One bottle of Organic Red Wine (Italian Terra Viva Merlot 2010 – £6.99 Waitrose)
Juice and Peel of one organic lemon and organic orange
Peel of half an organic cucumber
One organic teabag infused in the wine for 15 mins (Organic Earl Grey – £1.29 Waitrose)
One dessert spoon of organic brown sugar
I’m going to leave it to infuse in a Kilner Jar for 24 hrs and give it a taste, if it’s ready then I’ll staring and bottle, if not I’ll leave it a bit longer. If it needs more sugar I shall add some.
If you can get organic cinnamon/nutmeg/cloves you could also use these in your infusion.
When mixing it with gin, I’d suggest mixing your aromatized wine in equal measure.
