7g Caster Sugar
44g Red Liquid Food Colouring
To make your fake blood, dissolve the caster sugar into the food colouring. Fill a cocktail shaker with add and add the gin and vermouth. Stir to dilute. Double strain into a chilled small coupette glass and garnish with 2 drops of fake blood.

Extract the juice from your grapefruit. In a small bowl, muddle the raspberries into a pulp, add the honey and mix thoroughly. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the grapefruit juice and gin and stir. Add to a glass then add a teaspoon of the berry mixture before serving.
Add a blackberry to the side of a glass.
