The Lincolnite at Cognito

The Lydia gin was chosen due to the uniqueness of the spirit. It is a local product produced near East Drayton. The London Dry has heavy Tangerine flavourings which compliment with the classic Cointreau. Alongside this the vanilla tea syrup from Imperial Teas of Lincoln balances the zesty lemon juice which we squeeze in house. As well as the raspberry puree which adds a smooth berry consistency. Lastly the cocktail is topped with prosecco which adds bubbles giving more complexity.

The Lincolnite Cocktail at Dough LoCo was conceptualised after a gin tasting hosted by James Wood of The Gentleman Distillers LTD, based in Lincoln . His “Bandsman” British Gin uses tomato and basil as the main flavour alongside other botanicals through cold-compounding.

Dough LoCo take these flavours and compliment them with freshly muddled strawberries and basil which are then topped with both an orange and raspberry liquor and shaken with ice. A taste sensation!
