World Gin Day Recipe Round Up

Happy World Gin Day everybody! I’m not usually one to celebrate random food “holidays” because there are just so many of them. But World Gin Day is one that I couldn’t let pass me by. It’s no secret I love a G&T or two but for world gin day I thought I’d branch out and try something new. While I was looking for new ways to get my gin fix I came across all sorts from gin cakes, sizzling gin curries and of course one or two gin cocktails. There were so many that I thought I was only right that I shared some of my favourites – a bit of ginspiration if you will! Here are ten awesome gin recipes for World Gin Day. Enjoy!

World Gin Day Ginspiration!

1. Limoncello and Gin Fizz Cocktail

This is another incredibly simple gin cocktail made with the juice of blood oranges. Adnams, Death’s Door, Bombay Sapphire and Beefeater all work well with orange so would be a great addition to this recipe but feel free to use any gin you’ve got!

9. Raspberry Gin Trifle

Raspberry Gin Trifle Foodie Quine has a fantastic recipe for a raspberry trifle spiked with gin. How British!

10. Bombay Fever Pink Gin

Bombay Pink Fever Gin

And last but not least this is one of my favourite recipes – made with the Rhubarb and Ginger Gin Liqueur from Edinburgh Gin its a sweet and spicy cocktail that will slip down all too easily!

On that note I’m going to go an make one of these bad boys – you might remember from my post on Edinburgh I actually visited the Edinburgh Gin distillery and I’ve needed an excuse to crack open my bottle of the Rhubarb and Ginger Liqueur!

Happy world gin day everybody.
