The Chescato Tonic Wine Cocktail

The Chescato Tonic Wine Cocktail

A play on the classic G&T, the Chescato Tonic contains a cordial of sophisticated Pastis, some familiar Old Spice and a sweet Amaretto kiss. A tall and refreshing riff on the G&T for sunny days and pool parties.


50 ml Leopard's Leap Chescato 
50 ml Mulled Wine Cordial (see recipe below)
120 ml Indian Tonic Water
Baby's Breath (Gypsophila flowers) to garnish


To make the cordial:

In a small pot bring 2 cups of granulated sugar to the boil with 1 cup (250 ml) of Chescato
Add 25 ml of Amaretto and 15 ml of Pastis
Add 100 ml Pressed Apple juice
Add 100 g Ground All Spice
Boil until sugar dissolves
Chill mix and strain through a super filter into a clear bottle

Step 2 Add ice to top of glass
