If the Covid – 19 partial lockdown has got you craving cocktails, perhaps National Gin Day on the 13th of June 2020 should be a celebration date for your diary.
We’re all drinking a little more, being a little bit more inventive and getting a little bit more creative, therefore, I thought I would share with you a couple of delicious new cocktail recipes to try at home on behalf of Warner’s Gin.
The Bee’s Knees
If honey vibes and golden hour is your thing this is a sweet cocktail, to enjoy right as the sun goes down.
- 50ml Warner’s Honeybee Gin
- 20ml Lemon juice
- 20ml Orange juice
- 2 teaspoons of honey
- 1 egg white (optional)
Shake all ingredients with ice for 10 seconds. Double Strain the liquid into the other half of the shaker and empty the ice. Dry shake for another 10 seconds and pour into the coupette.
The Clover Club is a classic cocktail that pre-dates prohibition, these crazy times are certainly reminiscent, This cocktail is classy and delicious! The usual raspberry puree that would be in this drink has been swapped out for Warner’s Raspberry Gin with fresh Hedgerow Fruits. A Berry nice drink indeed.
- 50ml Warner’s Raspberry Gin
- 15ml Dry Vermouth
- 15ml Lemon Juice
- 15ml Sugar Syrup
- Egg white (optional)
How to make:
Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker, (the set I use is this one Black and Gold Cocktail Set from VonShef)and give it a good shake without ice. Then fill your shaker with ice and shake well (approximately 10 seconds). Double strain into a glass and garnish with a fresh berry.
