It is customary in every Filipino family to have a colorful, decorated Christmas tree at home. The pineapple represents the bounty of harvest and generosity where people enjoy exchanging crops and presents for the gift-giving season. Ingredients: 45 ml Raffles 1915 Gin 45 ml lime mix (fresh lime juice and sugar syrup) 3 to 4 slices of pineapple 2 to 3 fresh rosemary sprigs Pinch of black pepper Glass: Flute Garnish: Rosemary and cranberries Ice: Cracked ice Directions: Muddle the slices of pineapple in a shaker Add all rosemary sprigs, all liquid ingredients, and a pinch of black pepper Add cracked ice. Shake. Serve in a flute glass with cracked ice and garnish with fresh rosemary sprig and top with three cranberries. Tasting Notes: The aroma is piney from the juniper notes of Raffles 1915 Gin and the rosemary sprig. The drink has a complex array of spicy, sweet, and minty notes with a vibrant, tropical, fresh, and zesty citrus finish. Note: This drink will not be available on the menu of Long Bar, but you can ask them to whip it up for you if you drop by.
