Method

This cocktail is great served at the end of a meal. The first time I had it was in a bar called MG Garage in Sydney, where they brought out frozen glasses, frozen gin and a tray full of pomegranates at the end of our meal. Since then I've used it as a good trick after a meal to clean the palate and relaunch the conversation. Buy a good-quality bottle of gin – you normally get what you pay for. Pop it in the freezer for an hour, along with a shot glass for each of your guests.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
