With Gin so on trend and so many local Norfolk Gins to choose from, Gin cocktails have got to be the order of the day.
Did you know you can make your own bottle of bespoke Gin in Norwich at the Gin Academy, you can go on Gin tasting sessions and you can pick up nearly a dozen local Gins from shops like Jarrold’s or Toby’s on Norwich Market.
Here are a few Gin cocktails to try at home – simply mix in parts – a 30ml shot measure is good to use, or go for an egg cup – shake over ice or simply pour and stir.
Usually 2 parts Vodka (but I like mine with Rhubarb Gin), with 1 part peach snapps and topped with 4 parts cranberry.
2 parts gin, 1 part fresh lemon juice, 2/3 part sugar syrup – top with soda.
2 parts gin, 1 part fresh orange juice, 1 part fresh lemon juice, 2 teaspoons honey.
2 parts gin, 1 part elderflower liquor, 1 part fresh lemon juice, 4 parts apple juice – garnish with cucumber slices.
1 part gin, 1/2 part cherry brandy, 1/3 part cointreau (or traditionally Benedictine) 1/2 part lime juice, 1/4 part grenadine, 1 dash angostura bitters, 4 parts pineapple juice – top with sparkling water.
