The Perfect Apéritif

The Perfect Apéritif

Apples and Roots: A Kamm & Sons cocktail recipe

An apéritif is a pre-dinner drink originating from our French and Italian cousins, but is making its way to these shores thanks to new British aperitif, Kamm & Sons.

Former bartender Alex Kammerling has invented a British style pre-dinner drink using fresh grapefruit peel, manuka honey, elderflower and ginseng. Described as a cross between gin and Campari, it is perfect over ice, with your favourite mixer or served in various cocktails—there has never been a better time to refresh your drinks cabinet!

If you are in the mood to mix up a few cocktails, why not try this tempting recipe by Kamm & Sons?

Apples & Roots is a simple yet delicious seasonal cocktail that can be served hot or cold.
