After reading this week that the Queen has a gin cocktail with her lunch, in our office, we are feeling like it is now socially acceptable to have one with our Pret sarnie.,.
Our gin choice this week; One Gin (from the makers of One Water) which describes itself as ‘a British Gin inspired by the World’. Created in Sussex with nine botanicals, One Gin is perfect in a G&T with a slice of crisp apple and a sage leaf to garnish.
Ophir’s Spiced Oriental gin makes a kick ass Negroni and also looks lovely on your dressing table (not that we condone this one!). Combine 30ml Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin with 30ml Sweet Vermouth and 30ml Campari, mix, strain, garnish and serve.
Isfjord Premium Arctic Gin is distilled with botanicals including juniper, cardamom and lemon grass. It’s a gentle gin (if that were such a thing) made with iceberg water from Greenland.
Not only does it contain lovely antioxidant rich blackberries, but it’s the perfect accompaniment to smashing up your actual BlackBerry, if like mine it stopped running all the useful functions on Dec 31st…
Thanks to House & Garden for this one – you can get the full recipe here – it looks almost too beautiful to drink! Made with botanical-infused Portobello Road Gin, white chocolate and a bouquet of flowers.
