Nightfall consumes the day earlier each evening slowly lengthening the night and heightening the chance for an unexpected rendezvous illuminated by the half-light of the moon. The darkness takes an ominous turn as Friday the 13th emerges from the shadows. For centuries, this date has been cloaked in mystery and fright, with our fate merely left to chance. However, with Brockmans‘ newest cocktail, the Charmed Ruby, luck is on your side and this notorious date simply sets the stage for an unexpected, mysterious night like no other; the possibilities are truly endless.
The distinctive, elegant and intriguing blend of botanicals and notes of blueberry and blackberry in Brockmans Gin come to life with Ruby Port and ginger ale in the Charmed Ruby cocktail, making it your lucky charm on this infamous, November night. Best served with the Sunday papers alongside a roaring log fire, whilst Kaiser Chiefs “Ruby” plays softly in the background.
