Episode 5 - Homemade Ingredients

Here Nick explains how simple it is to make your own ingredients to add to your cocktails, ultimately enhancing their flavour and creating intrigue.  You could whip up a jam or a puree for instance – the list and space for creativity is endless.  

Sugar syrup is a great starting point. It is super quick, super easy and added to the majority of mixed drinks. You can even be experimental by switching white sugar for demerara sugar, adding an alternative sweetness to your cocktail. From here the choices are endless; you could add vanilla or mint to your syrup which will elevate your cocktail to a new level of deliciousness. Sugar syrup is a great staple to have to hand. Why not give it a go?
