Dark and Monky

MONKS is the South African gin with intense botanicals, nine of them hand-picked and many endemic to the area. Combine with crystal-clear mountain waters, and the result is a rewarding one, featuring ripples of citrus, berries and Cape Buchu. Make MONKS the magic ingredient in your next cocktail!



50 ml Monks Medella

50 ml pomegranate juice

12.5 ml Monks Medella syrup

12.5 ml lemon juice


Add all ingredients to your shaker.

Add ice and shake for 30 seconds.

Serve in a glass of your choice (we liked the tumbler) and garnish with fynbos.

For an added smoke effect add a single cube of dry ice once poured.
