As it’s Father’s Day this weekend, I wanted to create a recipe that my own Dad would love. Also as Thomas Dakin was the ‘founding father of gin’, this ice-cream couldn’t be more perfect! Orange and ginger is beautiful with Thomas Dakin gin and with such an easy and quick recipe…this adults only ice-cream is very special!
Our favourite day of the year is finally arrived… tomorrow is definitely acceptable to start drinking gin before noon, it’s World Gin Day!! We have done our research and put together for you the coolest events around the UK that celebrate our favorite spirit, GIN!
The Royal Wedding this weekend is the perfect time to get together with friends to celebrate the happy couple with these delicious cocktails! Spring is finally here, (well.. at least on paper!) and our thirst for a refreshing, bright G&T to enjoy in the sun has inspired us to look for some great recipes to share with you. We shall forget about the warming flavours of cinnamon and star anise and say a big HELLO! to elderflower, rose, cucumber and all the tangy and dazzling garnishes out there.
This is a unique gin that you definitely need to try! A gin steeped in heritage, Thomas Dakin himself was just 25 years old in 1761 when he began distilling his own gin in Warrington. Today, the gin isn’t a recreation of an original recipe, but has botanicals inspired by exotic spices and the unusual addition of horseradish (or “red cole” as it was known in the 18th century).
