MIXING GIN INTO YOUR LIFE

Gin is an alcohol that is usually mixed with other ingredients. It is strong and mature all at the same time. To calm down the flavors, mixing gin will do wonders on your palate. An ‘Earl Grey Gin & Tonic’ is quite lovely and calming; it’s made with 4 Earl Grey tea bags by adding them to a bottle of gin. It needs to sit for at least 2 hours. Once done, you will mix in the tonic. For a great and tasteful drink, make a ‘Chamomile gin.’ It’s gin with dried chamomile flowers, honey, and lemon juice. The flavors complement each other so well; you’ll feel healthy and buzzed all at the same time. ‘Long Island Iced Tea’ never tasted so good with a yummy mix of equal parts gin, vodka, triple sec, and rum tequila. Mix it with Coke, lemon juice, and gomme syrup. Your taste buds will be in for quite a surprise with this one.

Don’t forget about breakfast; a ‘Breakfast Martini’ is just what the doctor ordered. It’s made with gin, Cointreau, marmalade, lemon juice, and orange peel. Garnish with an orange slice for an extra tasty bonus at the end. A ‘Sloe gin’ is quite unique as well as a long process; it’s made by adding sloes and sugar to gin, and then you will leave it in a cool place for about 6 months. If you have the patience, it is definitely worth the wait. A lovely drink for the ladies is called ‘Lavender Lady.’ It’s made with gun, lavender syrup, elderflower cordial, and lemon juice. It’s not too strong, but tastes great for a night on the town with your gal pals. Whenever you need a unique drink but don’t want to make it on your own, just ask you bartender for something different, and they will make you a gin surprise. Enjoy.
