A spot of tipple : Ramos fizz

A delicious classic that's been tempting the taste buds for many a year, not for the faint hearted this decadent cocktail makes for refreshingly different drink. This goes particularly well with Martin Miller's Westbourne strength gin, it's subtle peach undertones are brought out with the orange blossom water, you could choose to replace this with peach liqueur for a different taste.

 50ml Martin Miller's Westbourne strength gin
 10ml lemon juice
 10ml lime juice
 20ml simple syrup
 20ml cream
 dash orange blossom water
 soda to top

Prior to mixing your cocktail make the syrup, you need two simple ingredients for this, water and sugar, you need 2 parts sugar to 1 part water to make this. Bring the water to the boil in a pan then dissolve the sugar in the water and stir. Once the sugar is dissolved remove the pan from the heat, allow it to cool then bottle your mixture.

Place cubed ice cubes into your shaker, add the gin, lime and lemon juices, syrup, cream and orange blossom water and shake well.

Strain into a hi-ball glass then top up with soda.

Best drunk: this refreshing tipple is perfect for a laid back evening drink, something decadent to rustle up for yourself on the weekend.
