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!
Gin and lemon are a match made in heaven. Move on from the classic gin and tonic with ice and a slice and upgrade to Limoncello Gin Fizz Cocktails. Props to anyone who makes their own limoncello (you can find my recipe here).
This Boozy Bramble Cake comes from Jen over at Jen’s Food. She’s taken some wonderful, classic flavour combinations and turned them into the most delicious gin filled cake.
Although this cocktail doesn’t actually involve a drop of Mother’s ruin itself, it is flavoured with juniper berries, the key ingredient in making gin. A wonderful cocktail for sophisticated occasions.
6. Rhurbarb Gin
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!
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.
