I was inspired to make this recipe not only because I love cheese, but because of the wonderful Pink Pepper Gin! Distilled in France, with spicy notes of pink pepper and warming honey, I couldn’t get this gin baked camembert in the oven quick enough!
A deliciously sticky ginger cake (GINger) had to be done with one of this month’s gins, Opihr! With ginger being one of the spicy botanicals featured in this wonderful gin, it works perfectly in this recipe. Topped with a yummy ginny, orange icing …. it won’t last long in your house!
Gin is not just a drink, it’s a culture. In an era where binge culture, and having everything now-now-now, negates from the notion of sitting back, in good company, in the perfect setting and enjoying a fine drink. Now we are not going on a hipster millennial rant before you decide to navigate away, don’t worry, we are not becoming that annoying “craft beer *wearing lumberjack shirt*) guy. No, we are simply tipping our hat to all your gin lovers out there, those who enjoy an elaborate gin concoction, all the way to the purists who accept nothing else but a simple pour over ice and maybe with tonic. This article is to celebrate you and the wonderful gin culture which brings people together, whatever the season, a reason to be happy, a reason to raise a glass and cheers to good health. From here in London all the way to our friends in Tokyo and beyond, every country has a signature pour and everyone who loves gin has an idea about how it should be served.
I don’t know about you but I have been trying to keep cool so far summer! I am a big fan of gin ice-creams (check out my last one here), so I thought I would also try a gin sorbet! This recipe is with blackberries, raspberries and Greenall’s Wild Berry Gin… it’s very refreshing!
To whoever decided that pink gin was going to be the colour of the drink of the season, THANK YOU! Now the men in in our lives will not steal our G&Ts from us “because they are pink and girly”. Let’s hope they don’t find out they are delicious too!!
