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.
The Red Snapper is a gin lovers Bloody Mary! There are many tasty, red cocktails that are perfect to celebrate St George’s Day, but this one is created with brunch in mind. This will certainly kick start your week!
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 😉
The wonderful juniper spirit, if you hadn’t realised already we really love gin and so we’ve created the ultimate list of gin cocktails so you can find the best gin cocktails to make, try or dream about.
There’s something for everyone, from the gin lover who drinks gin whenever they can, to the other end of the scale to that person who says they ‘hate gin’, we’re pretty confident that if they try a few from this list we’ll have changed their mind on this superb spirit.
The qualities of this juniper based spirit mean that it can pair really well with a range of other flavours, from fruits such as grapefruit, to herbs and spices, meaning the possibilities of gin based cocktails are nearly endless. We’ve all had the struggle of searching online for a cocktail and come across hundreds of websites all with individual recipes, or lists of recipes which are simply uninspiring so we thought we’d make you the ultimate gin cocktail list with everything from a classic Bramble to a Strawberry, Basil & Pink Peppercorn Negroni. Chin chin! (or should that be Gin Gin!?)
