We’ve put together a series of cocktails for Moderation Month – our alternative to dry January – using Portobello Road Temperance Spirit. With all the different resolutions and changes taken on in January, we’re doing something that we can actually take through the rest of the year and turn in to consistent habits when it comes to drinking, whether that be a moderation month, week or day. Turning ‘temptation’ in to ‘temperance’ the range of drinks are perfect for a mid-week pick me up or a cheers to the weekend and are all easy to make at home as well as being available at The Distillery, 186 Portobello Road.
The first in our series of cocktails using Temperance spirit for Moderation Month is a deliciously fresh concoction called ‘A Call for Temperance’ which is just 3.7% ABV. Try it for yourself at home:
15ml Fino Sherry
20ml Lemon juice
10 ml Sugar syrup
Whites of 1 egg
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker, shake with ice, remove ice, dry shake and then fine strain straight up in a coup glass.
For a zesty finish, grate some lemon zest on to the top of your finished cocktail.
