WORLD GIN DAY
Never has there been a better reason to celebrate the botanical elixir we all know and love. Yes, ladies and gentlemen it is indeed World Gin Day. Whilst we are ALWAYS partial to a cheeky G&T, we felt today called for something a little different: cocktails. Cue screams of excitement.
As it’s such a special occasion, we’ve enlisted the help of our very own gin connoisseur and founder of Gin Tales, Fiona – not only is she an expert on the stuff, she actually makes it. Dream job or what?
Fiona has put together two utterly scrumptious cocktail recipes for us, using her very own all natural gin:
Country Garden Fizz:
- 50ml Strawberry, Rosemary and Lime gin
- 60ml Champagne or Prosecco
- 60ml pineapple or peach juice
- Sprig of rosemary and a strawberry to decorate
Pour each ingredient in turn into a flute starting with the gin. Follow with the bubbly and finally the juice. Add the rosemary sprig and a strawberry to decorate.
- 50ml of Lavender gin
- 25ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 25ml honey simple syrup (equal parts honey and water heated and mixed together)
- Dash of orange bitters
Shake all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and pour into a glass. Top up with soda water.
Meet Gin Tales
Once upon several gins, Fiona decided enough was enough. She was going to stop her beloved spirit from being drowned in unnatural ingredients in order to obtain flavour. And thus, Gin Tales was born: a selection of gins infused with only natural ingredients, bringing taste to G&T’s and cocktails across the land.
