It is certainly true that Gin is the ‘in’ spirit at the moment. Even a few years ago when we started out it was all about vodka and the ever expanding range of flavoured vodkas. Been there, done that. Now it’s gin that’s back in the spotlight.
So try some of the fantastic range of products now available. Waitrose certainly does a great range. Large Waitrose stores that is, and look at your local independents too. Locally here in Market Harborough, Duncan Murray Wines does some interesting ones including the local products such as Two Birds gin.
With many interesting botanicals used including camphor, lavender, camomile, lemongrass and black peppercorn according to brand, they make a fragrant and interesting base to many new cocktails.
One recipe we’d like to suggest is the Aperol Negroni. One we’ve formulated ourselves but well worth trying…..
Simple to put together. Equal measures of each …
Shaken together with ice in a shaker. And pour. Quite honestly, what could be simpler?
