It’s Monday – which is the new Friday. Which means cocktails. Which means gin cocktails.
And I have been making lots of them. All in the name of practice for you my lovely readers. Obviously, I only want to give you the best cocktail recipe ever. And trying them out isn’t exactly unpleasant. Plus is does not hurt that I got sent a fab cocktail hamper from Aldi filled with their award winning Oliver Cromwell Dry London Gin, a cocktail making kit and tons of lovely fruit and juices. Yeap, I have had some extremely happy guests.
You can never ever beat a good all-round gin cocktail. Although it is refreshing and great for summer, the warming spices also make it perfect for the coming colder months of the Autumn which means it would be great for Halloween, Thanksgiving and definitely Christmas brunches. Just thinking ahead on this one folks.
