I was treated by That Boutique-y Gin Company to a fabulous summer gift in the form of this rather glorious OMGin box, which contained three bottles of deliciousness! Finger Lime Gin, Cucamelon Gin and Strawberry & Balsamico Gin.
Friday night most certainly reeks of cocktails, so here is a little recipe to kick off your weekend! For this cocktail you’ll need a bottle of the Strawberry & Balsamico Gin. Fresh strawberries, strawberry and black pepper distillates and “the very finest balsamic vinegar money can buy*” are added to a classic gin base to create this fruit gin.
You’re going to need:
- 1 squeezed lime wedge
- 25 ml pomegranate juice
- 50 ml Strawberry & Balsamico Gin
- 100 ml soda water
Firstly squeeze a wedge of lime into a Collins glass. Next, pour in 25ml pomegranate juice, followed by 50ml Strawberry & Balsamico Gin. Fill your glass to the top with ice and top up with soda water. Carefully combine the mixture and enjoy.
I really enjoyed this cocktail and polished it off rather quickly
Happy cocktail times guys, let me know how you get on with this one.
