Having trouble adjusting to the brisk autumnal weather which has engulfed the UK? We’ve got a spicy one for you that should warm your bones! It’s a Red Snapper – essentially a Bloody Mary with gin – spiced up with Opihr’s punchy Far East Edition Gin and built with all the usual suspects: tomato juice, Worcester and Tabasco sauces, lemon juice and black pepper.
Since many of us will “Go Sober For October”, why not consider making this a non-alcoholic or lower-alcohol cocktail? Find some low and no-alcohol spirits to use in place of your gin here.
