Celebrate British Food Fortnight With A Lovely Cocktail

British Food Fortnight is taking place now (19th Sept - 4th Oct).

British Food Fortnight is a national celebration of British produce from health benefits and quality to freshness and seasonality. Harrogate-based Slingsby Gin uses locally sourced ingredients from places such as its home-town in Yorkshire to create its stunning range of flavoured Gins (London Dry, Marmalade, Gooseberry and Rhubarb).

Earth of the Tropics

Taking inspiration from the classic French Martini cocktail, this drink pays homage to the fertile soils of Yorkshire and the exotic volcanic islands of Hawaii with a natural earthy element provided by the humble beet.


25ml Slingsby Rhubarb Gin
25ml Strawberry Liqueur
60ml Pineapple Juice
10ml Sugar Syrup
10ml Lemon Juice
½ tsp of Beetroot Powder
4 muddled raspberries


Muddle raspberries in the base of a cocktail shaker.
Add all other ingredients to the shaker.
Shake hard, wet and dry, before straining into a martini glass.
Allow foam to settle and add a dusting of beetroot powder.
