Bombay Sapphire East is Bombay Sapphire’s next offering with taste of Thai lemongrass and Vietnamese black peppercorn flavours into the original Bombay Sapphire flavour combination – juniper, citrus, angelica, orris root, coriander, liquorice, cassia bark, almonds, cubeb berries and West African grains. You sure get a gin that reflects the spices of a lot of Asian countries.

This gin packs a punch at 42%.

I’m usually pretty boring and ask for a gin and tonic, but today I got to try it in some awesome summer cocktails – Loosen the Know and Eastern Crush.

 one serving 

  • 0.5 oz simple sugar water
  • 0.5 oz freshly squeezed lemons (lemon juice can be substituted)
  • 1 oz Bombay Sapphire East
  • 2-2.5 oz of sparkling wine
  • a scoop of lemon ginger sorbet gelato

In a serving glass or a pitcher, mix in the simple sugar water, freshly squeezed lemons, and Bombay Sapphire East. Then top it off with sparkling wine and the gelato.

It’s very refreshing and I would have never thought gelato and gin would go well together. The sparkling wine pairs nicely too to add the carbonation.

  • pinch of cilantro
  • 0.5 ounce of sugar

In a shaker cup, muddle the watermelon, cilantro, sugar and lemon together. Then, add in the Bombay Sapphire East, black pepper, ice and shake away. Then, strain out the mixture into your cup of ice and then garnish with cilantro.

I just love watermelon, I can’t get enough of it in the Summer to just cool down.

You can pick up Bombay Sapphire East at your local liquor store. If you’re looking for a different type of gin to try out this summer, definitely give it a try.
