Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
To begin your gin adventure, assemble all the necessary ingredients: Safari African Gin, Fitch & Leeds tonic water, a lime, fresh rosemary, a cinnamon stick, and an edible flower.

Step 2: Prepare Your Glass
Take a classic gin glass and fill it generously with ice. The crisp, cold ice will serve as the perfect foundation for your Makanyi Magic Gin Cocktail.

Step 3: Add Safari African Gin
Pour 50ml of Safari African Gin into the glass over the ice. The unique botanicals and flavours of this gin will set the stage for a truly magical experience.

Step 4: Introduce Fitch & Leeds Tonic Water
Now, it’s time to add the effervescence. Slowly pour 200ml of Fitch & Leeds tonic water into the glass with the gin. Watch as the bubbles dance and mingle with the gin, creating a symphony of flavours.

Step 5: Garnish with Flair
Enhance the visual appeal and aroma of your drink by garnishing it with a lime wheel, a sprig of fresh rosemary, and a cinnamon stick. The citrusy aroma of lime, combined with the herbal notes of rosemary and the warm touch of cinnamon, will elevate your cocktail to new heights.

Step 6: Add the Finishing Touches
To add a touch of elegance and sophistication, twist a piece of lime peel over the glass. The oils released from the peel will impart a subtle citrus essence to your drink, enhancing its overall flavour profile. Finally, delicately place an edible flower on top of your creation. Not only does it add a pop of colour, but it also introduces a hint of floral notes to the mix.

Sit back and enjoy!
