Perfect pairing: Select a spirit and the Merchant’s Heart that will perfectly enhance its characteristics.
Choose a glass - it needs to be big enough to pack with large ice cubes and ideally with a stem so you can keep it cool.
Chill the glass (in the fridge or by filling it with ice cubes for a few minutes and drain excess water).
Pack the glass with as much ice as possible and add spirit (we use 50ml per 150ml of Spirit Enhancer or a 1:3 ratio).
If you are using herbs, spices or dried citrus to flavour your drink; in a separate glass, steep them in your spirit for a few moments to let the flavours infuse before adding the mixture to your glass of ice.
Slowly pour 150ml of Merchant’s Heart against the side of the glass.
If you’re using citrus, always use dehydrated slices. If using zest, prepare it over the top of the glass so that the oils spray into the glass and around the
Gently stir once or twice very slowly.
Garnish the drink with a little more citrus zest, spices or flowers (all things playful & beautiful). We stick to two garnishes max.
