guillotine cider based cocktail recipe

Be transported to a world of French-inspired flavours and Australian craftsmanship

Introducing “Guillotine” – a tantalising cocktail recipe that is sure to knock your block off. Made with Sydney Brewery’s The Original Sydney Cider, this cider-based cocktail is the perfect balance of sweet and sour.

To create this cocktail, start by adding 20 ml of homemade Tarte-tatin syrup to your shaker. Follow this with 15 ml of fresh lemon juice, 15 ml of Byrrh infused with sage, and 45 ml of the delicious Hickson RD Australian dry gin. Shake all these ingredients together and strain into a highball glass.

To top it off, add 30 ml of the Original Sydney Cider from Sydney Brewery. Garnish with a twist of lemon, sage, and a dehydrated pear to give it that extra touch of class.

The inspiration behind this cocktail recipe comes from the bartender’s grandmother, who used to make a lovely French “tarte-tatin” with caramelised pears and apples. The homemade syrup in this cocktail is a tribute to that delicious dessert.
