Our English sensibilities find this unseasonal weather rather bewildering and it has us hankering for some flavours from hotter climes.

So join with us and bask with one of these Broken Clock cocktails in hand. It was created by The Conduit Club in London, which has been warmly welcoming back their members and guests.

@maradei.giuseppe is the mastermind behind the cocktail and he has paired Broken Clock’s English country garden essences with Mediterranean flavours; a long lavender syrup, a vegetally refreshing artichoke soda and a dash of Noilly Prat.

This classic French vermouth comes from the same region as Picpoul de Pinet wine and is left out in the sun and sea air for a whole year to mature and meld in wooden casks.

Alas we can’t hope for this sunny British weather to persist for that long, so shake yourself up one of these libations and linger in the garden while the Indian Summer lasts.

INGREDIENTS:

40 ml Broken Clock Vodka
90 ml Lavender Juniper Syrup
10 ml Noilly Prat Vermouth
3 drops Peychaud’s Bitters
Tsp Lemon Juice
Top Homemade Jerusalem Artichoke Soda

Garnish:
Apple Powder
Sprig of Lavender

For the lavender syrup:
Gently simmer one handful of edible lavender and another of juniper heads with 200 g of sugar and 1 litre of water. Cool, strain and keep in the fridge.

For the artichoke soda:
Trim 250 g of Jerusalem artichokes and press to yield 100 ml juice. Simmer with 50 g caster sugar and 50 ml water. Cool, strain and add to a soda siphon.

METHOD:

Start by coating a chilled highball glass with the apple powder.

Next, add the Broken Clock, lavender syrup, vermouth, bitters and lemon to a Boston Shaker and shake with plenty of ice until very cold.

Ice up the highball glass and pour in the cocktail. Top with the artichoke soda and add a sprig of lavender.
