Her distinct earthy, spiced flavours are rich and sensual, difficult for any gin-lover to deny. Alone, she is spectacular, but combined with carefully chosen ingredients mixed in a harmonious cocktail, she is a force to be reckoned with.

- 50ml Cape Town Red Rooibos Gin
- 15ml simple syrup
- 15ml freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
- Orange slice
- Orange peel
Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake until the shaker feels cold. Strain into a tumbler with ice. Take the orange peel and squeeze it to spray the oils over the drink (for a smokey taste, lightly burn the orange peel). Garnish the drink with the same orange peel and add an orange slice.
