Gin Shortbread

Gin Shortbread

Gin Shortbread, a chilled glass of Vaione South Pacific Gin and a sun lounger overlooking an azure blue sea well warmed by the heat of a hot summer’s day. Take a bite, then have a sip, then relax and close your eyes in the sun. This is what the good life is all about, island time.

250 grams butter, softened
¾ cup icing sugar
½ cups flour
1 cup cornflour
1 lemon, zested and juiced
3 Tablespoons Vaione South Pacific Gin
Pre-heat the oven to 160°c

1.        Clean the outside of the fruit and remove any blemishes, before zesting the lemon and juicing it

2.        In large bowl add the butter and icing sugar and beat together

3.        Add to the butter mixture the flour and cornflour and stir together

4.        Add the lemon zest, juice and Vaione South Pacific Gin

5.        Mix the ingredients together until a dough is made.

6.        Knead the dough out on a clean and lightly floured surface.

7.        Roll the dough until it’s about 1cm thick

8.        Cut into squares

9.        Place onto an oven tray and bake at 160°c for 20 to 25 minutes
