Cocktail of the week: The Alchemist’s Chase the rainbow – recipe

Serve this super-refreshing cocktail of citrus flavours – think tart pink grapefruit and sweet oranges – in a wine glass filled with lots of ice to keep it chilled right down to the last sip. There’s a bit of sparkle in there, too, from the prosecco and soda water. It makes a lovely, long summer drink.

30ml pink grapefruit gin – Whitley Neill or Chase, for instance

20ml pink grapefruit juice
50ml prosecco
50ml soda water
1 twist grapefruit zest, to garnish

Put a handful of ice in a wine glass, then add the gin, sugar syrup, bitters and grapefruit juice. Stir, top with the prosecco and soda water, garnish with a twist of grapefruit zest and serve.
