I know that it may have been noted that in the recent few months I’ve not really posted much content.
That’s due to some personal circumstances that do not belong on this website. Bar any awful reoccurrence that is now behind me, which thankfully means I can get back to writing for this blog!
My return to this blog after a momentary lapse has come at the perfect time seeing as I’ll be visiting London at the end of the month. During my time I’ll be visiting a shortlist of cocktail bars I’ve always wanted to visit. I’ll also be popping into a few others within a reasonable distance of my hotel.
I’ll obviously be making an event of this and will be sharing pictures via Instagram and twitter. So if you’re looking to follow me please do! There are links in the drop down menu located on the homepage.
For now, at least, let me share with you the latest offer over at The Drink Shop: GIN!
Gin is awesome and is one of the big spirits (alongside Rum, Vodka etc.) and, whilst not #1 on my spirit list, it is an irreplaceable ingredient in several classic cocktails including the Gimlet.
The gimlet is a fantastically simple blend of Gin, Lime Juice and Sugar Syrup.
Using the Gimlet recipe below, and the link supplied here, why not try out that gin you’ve always wanted to try or were intrigued by?
I personally prefer a fragrant gin like Hendricks or Sipsmith – both of which can be found on the offers page!
Cocktails O’clock: The Gimlet
2.5 measures Gin
0.5 measures Lime Juice
0.5 measures Sugar Syrup (2:1 ratio)
- Combine ingredient in a cocktail shaker and shake well.
- Strain into an old fashioned glass filled with fresh ice.
- Garnish with a lime wheel and serve immediately.
Enjoy this cocktail and enjoy the gin! Within the next two months I’ll hopefully be starting back up with Shaken Cocktails so expect a flourishing selection of posts to come. Until then? Remember to always drink responsibly!
