With its creamy filling and buttery biscuit base, no one can deny cheesecake, but when combined with your favourite cocktail? Now that’s a match made in heaven. Manchester-based spirits brand Didsbury Gin has partnered with the well-known TV chef and winner of MasterChef 2015, Simon Wood to show fans just how easy it is to create this no bake Didsbury Gin citrus cheesecake at home.
Ingredients (Serves 1)
120ml Didsbury Gin Original
30g caster sugar
125g digestive biscuits – crumbed
40g butter (melted)
280g cream cheese
397g can condensed milk
90ml fresh lemon juice
Make sure you use Didsbury Gin Original
Add 120ml Didsbury Gin Original to a saucepan along with 30g of caster sugar and reduce by two thirds.
Combine the biscuit crumbs and melted butter and press into the base of your mould. Don’t over work it as you want it to hold together but still be a crumbly, buttery biscuit base.
Use a grater or micro plane to zest your citrus fruits. Retain a little of each to garnish your finished dessert.
Whisk together the cream cheese and condensed milk. Then stir in the lemon juice and your reduced gin syrup, add in your citrus zest combination and mix well before pouring over the prepared base.
Next, chill for at least two hours in the fridge until set, serve with your remaining citrus zest.
