Outrageously good food and drink play a huge part in Valentine’s Day and, for us at the Distillery, a few delicious gin drinks are the perfect way to treat your Valentine. Get creative with a cocktail shaker this year, make them a gin cocktail and tell that special someone how you really feel about them.
Combine 50ml of our Wild Gin with two bar spoons of honey in a cocktail shaker. Stir until the honey has dissolved. Add 20ml of lemon juice & 20ml of orange juice. Fill the shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. Finally, present your creation to that special someone who you think is the Bee’s Knees.
Floral Gin Fizz
Impress the gin-lover in your life with a romantic brunch in bed, accompanied by a Floral Gin Fizz. Combine 50ml Elderflower & Jasmine Gin, 15ml lime juice, and 15ml Elderflower liquor in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a chilled wine glass or flute and top with prosecco.
Rose and Raspberry Sour
Add a rose-pink twist to the classic gin sour cocktail: combine 25ml Apothecary Rose gin, 30ml lime juice, 20ml raspberry syrup, and ½ an egg white. Dry shake, then add ice and shake again before double straining the cocktail into a chilled rocks glass. Add some rose petals for an extra surprise for your partner.
Whatever you have planned for the 14th of February, make your time together extra special and serve with love the Secret Garden Gin.
