Turkish delight

I am off on holiday to Turkey – land of sun, sea and interesting old stuff. In my absence I’m leaving you a Turkish delight martini made with rose petal syrup. If you get lonely for me while I’m gone you can drink 1 and think of me on my sun lounger, or drink 4 and forget all about me entirely.

See you on the other side of the sunshine.

    Gotta love a gin blog (as I sip my rather dry Tanqueray martini – 75mls gin + 10 mls Noilly Prat vermouth, lemon peel garnish).

    @oxfordfood Stockholm was a mini break, which doesn’t count as a holiday. So it’s completely fine. You’ve moved blog!

    @klausandheidi Thanks, I had a lovely time.

    @Rahil 75mls gin? You devil!

    @miss south Hope you found some – I made a vat of it this summer and been looking for uses. Should’ve realised martinis would be my first stop.

    @kelsey There is no heaven without martinis.

    Wow… I’m a huge fan of gin (and therefore the extra dry martini) and this intrigues me. Does it actually taste like turkish delight? If so, I might have to add yet another rarely-used cocktail liqueur/syrup to my shelf 🙂
