Gintuition 01

as the whirl of christmas party season begins, i thought i’d break out my cocktail recipe cards and put my new gintuition glasses from dartington into action. this fun little gift set from the devonshire based crystal company is the perfect present for a gin lover like myself, bringing together three carefully crafted glasses – the copa, the highball and the martini – which have each been designed to complement and enhance your gin concoctions.

so without further ado, here are my three favourite gin-based tipples to see you through the festive season in style…

Gintuition 03

elderflower g&t

35ml bloom london dry gin
10ml st. germain elderflower liqueur
fever tree tonic, to taste

fill a copa glass with ice, add your favourite gin (i love the delicate floral taste of bloom london dry) and top with fever-tree tonic. finish with a splash of st. germain elderflower liqueur & garnish with a fresh wedge of lime.

Gintuition 05

sloe gin gimlet

50ml sipsmith sloe gin
12ml fresh lime juice

winter g&t

  1. Yes! Gin and elderflower – never tried it, but I’m certainly open to it! I think I need to reduce our booze cabinet before we’re moving anyway, so that’s a good excuse, haha! xo

  2. These look utterly gorgeous but I feel like I get a big fat fail as a female because I can’t DO gin. I know, I know. I’m just gonna go hide in that corner over there and have a word with myself. xxx

  3. I haven’t drunk alcohol for 3 yrs now due to pregnancy and breast feeding and I honestly haven’t missed it. But just recently in the run up to Christmas I’m feeling like I could really do with a G&T.

  4. Just had a glass of wine with my man before getting to your blog so I guess I’m already living the spirit of Christmas. I’d use a cocktail now.
