Mollie Atherton, Head Bartender at Lancashire’s Northcote, has been named the Winner of the Brockmans Gin / BAR magazine ‘Night Like No Other’ cocktail competition.

Mollie (pictured) created a cocktail called ‘The Lady Austissimo’ involving coriander, berries, peppercorns and Brockmans Gin. Her prize involved being whisked away to Barcelona  for a spectacular multi-sensory party, dubbed a Night Like No Other, to reflect the fact that Brockmans is often described as ‘a gin like no other’ due to its distinctive taste profile.

If you’d like to create the cocktail at home, here’s Mollie’s recipe:

  • Pinch whole Coriander Seeds
  • Pinch Rose Peppercorns
  • 2 Fresh Blackberries
  • 2 Fresh Blueberries
  • ½ handful Fresh Coriander
  • 3 Dashes Orange Bitters

Muddle all above together in a stirring glass and add:

  • 50ml Brockmans Gin
  • 20ml Cointreau

Add ice to stirring glass and stir in Brockmans and Cointreau. Stir for around 1-2 minutes then double strain into glass over fresh ice. Pour over a small bottle of Fever Tree Med Tonic and finally garnish with orange peel twist, fresh coriander leaf and a single fresh blackberry.
