The original Blinker from Patrick Gavin Duffy's 1934 The Official Mixer's Manual uses grenadine but the folk at Hawksmoor have switched this for a few fresh raspberries and a dash of sugar syrup, turning a good drink into a great cocktail.


Adapted from a recipe discovered in 2013 at Hawksmoor, Spitalfields, London, England.
