It’s fair to say, that Gin was definitely the drink of 2017 and is only going to get bigger. I actually started drinking Gin properly only a few months ago, because of the wonderful bartenders at Bluu bar, making delicious Gin cocktails.
Throughout summer I enjoyed (a lot) of Tom Collins cocktails & fell in love with drinking Gin. But, as the winter months came, I didn’t want to drink anything cold or lemon flavoured. Until I discovered winter gin cocktails that is!
There are three cocktails which I have been enjoying, very much, over the past couple of months and I though I would share them with you! I haven’t included any measurements with the ingredients, as I think Gin cocktails are all about your own personal preference! Make these cocktails for how you like them!
The Clementine & Cinnamon.
This one is so simple, yet perfect for winter nights. All you need is;
Ophir spiced gin
Fevertree clementine & cinnamon tonic water
This has been my drink of choice over Christmas & New Year! If you want something warming & festive, this is the perfect choice. I know that this tonic water is limited edition and a lot of people have struggled to find it. But, I have found lots of it in almost every Asda store I have been too!
Winter Gin Tonica
This cocktail is from a book that I was given for Christmas. The Gin Tonica Recipe book, for Spanish style cocktails. I knew I wanted to try it straight away & it did not disappoint! If your new to drinking Gin, this would be a perfect one to try, as it is slightly sweet. All you need;
Opihr spiced Gin
I changed the recipe from the book slightly, as ginger liqueur isn’t exactly easy to get hold of or affordable. So I added a little more Gin & used touch of ginger syrup instead. I think this one is possibly my favourite!
London Cup Gin
Last but not least, is a new one to me & it has slowly become one of my favourites. All you need is;
Sipsmiths London Cup
Ginger ale or tonic water
This Gin is tasty & sweet enough to drink alone with just ice! But, when it’s mixed with tonic water & orange peel, it is even more delicious!!
