Celebrate World Gin Day

Celebrate World Gin Day with a Rhubarb & Custard Cocktail and a Gin & Tonic Sorbet

 

As many like me at the moment, after juggling home-school and work each day, my evenings often begin with a long sigh and a large glass of something white or red. Today, though I have a real excuse for a tipple – it’s World Gin Day!

Gin has seen a huge surge in popularity over recent years, which has unleashed the potential for micro-makers and larger-scale producers to really up their game. There is a myriad of different gins to choose from; we’re spoilt for choice.

The story of gin is a far cry from gin culture today –
A Brief Chequered History of Gin.

I look back with much nostalgia on my trip to Edinburgh Gin, where I learnt about its history and production methods, back in the days when we could enjoy a weekend escape sampling different gins.

To celebrate World Gin Day, I’m sharing with you my two favourite Dairy Diary gin recipes. Both SO easy but really tasty. Chin chin!

This cocktail is deliciously simple and takes just a few minutes to prepare.

Best when mixed with really good quality vodka, such as Grey Goose.

Enjoy it with friends this weekend and don’t miss World Cocktail Day on Monday.
