We all have our favourite gins, you know the one you always make sure you have a bottle of in the cupboard or on the side, it’s the one that when it runs out you have a mini panic! Well how about using that and mixing up the garnishes you use to get new flavours and tastes from it.
The video below shows you how to make your favourite gin & tonic and mix it up four different ways!
Top Tip: If you’ve got a bottle of gin which you’re not a huge fan of this makes a great way to make use of it to try new garnishes and you may end up loving the gin with a particular garnish.
Sometimes combining two of our favourite things can make something super delicious! So when we first heard about combining gin with tea we thought this sounded right up our street.
This rather British take on a classic Martini involves adding Earl Grey to the mix, now let’s face it, there’s always time for a cup of tea so why not have one in the evening and have some lovely gin in it too!
How many Gin bottles do you reckon one needs to own to have a good collection? And how many should there be in the Gin cupboard to be deemed gin obsessed? We have done some research and our lovely Facebook followers have helped us to reach a conclusion. Variety is important but the display plays a big part in our decision – These are the most worshipped Gin bottles that we have ever come across!
Our members this month received the Spirit of Cornwall box and loved Tarquin’s gin! We find it outstanding in a G&T but it makes great base for cocktails too. Here are some of our favourites that you have to try making! And if you need the gin you can get it here 😉
It’s one of our favourite days of the year… PANCAKE DAY! Yes we’re pretty excited in the ILoveGin office and one of our favourite things to do on this special day is to make GIN pancakes!
Now you’ve got two options when it comes to making gin based pancakes, the easy (super fast) method or the slightly longer method, take your pick from them below and enjoy some delicious gin based pancakes.
Sometimes all it takes is combining two things you love to make something new and exciting. This is the case with a turbo G&T, which combines gin with coffee, specifically cold brew coffee. It’s surprising that these two great things have never crossed paths properly before until now!
Maybe they were just happy to do their own things, whether it was coffee, being there for those early starts, to give you a little energy and then resting itself in the evening whereas gin has always been there in the evenings, waiting for you after a long night. Luckily for us someone decided to put these two things together with some tonic and created what is now known as a Turbo Gin & Tonic!
I’m sure we’ve all had that moment in a relationship where we’ve thought ‘is this it, is he the one? Could I do better, would I be better on my own?’
When you ask yourself this, the answer to it all is … gin!
Let me explain in 16 points:
1. Gin doesn’t make you cry
It won’t stand you up, it won’t look at other girls, your G&T will have it’s full attention on you! You might have cried into a glass of gin before but this is likely the result of a boy and not the gin itself!
Because we have been drinking a lot of Gin lately, mass-production and the consequent standardisation of flavours has become the norm to satisfy our thirst for this juniper based spirit. Tarquin has brought back the beauty of craftsmanship and we are VERY grateful for it! This gin is produced in tiny batches on the coast of north Cornwall and every batch has a slightly different flavour. Unbottling Tarquin’s gin is pretty much like opening a Kinder egg, you never know what surprise you are going to get but it never disappoints 😉
