Another great reason to celebrate all things gin…and try some new amazing cocktails!

Even though we never need much of a reason to pour ourselves a G&T,  the 12th of June is World Gin Day, and another perfect excuse to celebrate all things gin!

With that said, we have put together a few delicious gin cocktails, from some of our favourite gin brands available locally, including non-alcoholic options for those who still want to raise their glass and celebrate the ever-growing ‘ginnaisance’! We also have a sneaky giveaway for you, see the bottom of the post for details.

Stir all the ingredients together and strain into a tumbler glass with a big block of ice. Take the orange twist and squeeze the oil over the drink. Pro tip:  Run the peel on the outside of the glass …  it gives you a multisensory experience with the orange oil on your fingertips.
