Single Orange Gin

This is a quick and easy recipe to make a coffee and gin based cocktail at home. In collaboration with Naked Wines, this cocktail has notes of red wine gums and black cherry with a complex citric character with a delightful effervesence from the prosecco, on the finish.

Best enjoyed with friends (as are most things in life).
