We have an exclusive additional Mr Darcy recipe for you Gin Austen fans!The marvelous Colleen Mullaney, author of the run-away success 'Gin Austen: 50 Cocktails to Celebrate the Novels of Jane Austen', has created an exclusive bonus recipe just for us at the Jane Austen Centre and Online Gift Shop. It's called "Mr. Darcy's Demise", and just like Mr Darcy himself, it's strong, delicious, and has a bitter quality to it.
Mr. Darcy's Demise
6oz. Gin ("I like Hendricks as its not so juniper forward" - Colleen)
4oz. Pineapple juice
1oz. Fresh lime juice
Rosé wine to top - chilled
Edible Blossoms for garnish ("I love using nasturtium blossoms" - Colleen)
In a shaker with ice, pour gin and juices, and shake well. Pour into wine glasses, top with chilled rosé and serve.
Thank you so much for asking me for a special bonus recipe from Gin Austen!
I do believe Mr. Darcy is deserving of his own cocktail, and this one is perfect for fun warm weather gatherings!
