  1. Using a peeler, peel off the zest of 1 of the limes and add to a saucepan along with the caster sugar and 1 tbsp water. Bring to a simmer and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Peel one long piece of the remaining lime zest, taking care not to cut too much of the pith. The lime zest piece should feel quite thin and flexible, cut it lengthwise into two pieces. Wrap each zest strip around the end of a wooden spoon, securing each end with a little blue tack to hold in place. Set aside for the lime zest to curl whilst you finish the drink.
  3. In a cocktail shaker or jug, mix the Bombay Sunset Gin with the satsuma juice, lime juice and the cooled lime syrup. Add a handful of ice, shake again until the liquid is very cold. Spoon out and discard the ice.
  4. Divide the mixture between two coupe glasses, serve immediately with the curled lime zest on the rim of the glass and a slice of satsuma in the drink.
