The French Tart.
When experimenting with gin cocktails we were pleased to discover this one; The French Tart cocktail brings together both tart, sweet and herbal flavours to create a drink with a unique depth to it. Each ingredient compliments the other giving it just the right balance of sweet and sour flavours. It may take a few attempts to perfect the drink exactly to your taste, but this is one of our favourite gin cocktail recipes which we highly recommend.
If you notice a difference in taste from one week to the next it may be the grapefruit you use, this can change in taste throughout the season.
