Are you searching for a lush, flavoured gin that makes for good summer drinking? Are you a fan of pink gins? Well, read on and let me tell you about Sikkim Fraise gin from Spain (and you can check out my YouTube review!)
San Francisco, the city by the bay with its rolling fog, impossibly steep streets, cable cars and wharves. That’s what most people think of when they think of this city, but San Francisco also has a thriving brunch scene, believe it or not. We have a guest blogger in the ginandjuicing house to tell us all about the boozy brunches San Fransisco has to offer…
Summer is approaching and the urge to drink outside in the sun is overwhelming. Luckily, Hackney Wick is brimming with excellent spots to sun yourself and drink some delicious, delicious alcohol. And because we’re all about the responsible consumption of alcohol (?), there’s also some great food to line your stomach with. Let’s get started…
Glass of Bubbly hosted their annual Champagne and Sparkling Wine Tasting Event and Summit at Le Méridien in Piccadilly, London and ginandjuicing (including Lucy) were lucky enough to be invited along! It was such an elegant event with a plethora of Champagne and sparkling wine producers from Italy, France, Croatia and the UK sharing their beautiful wines and information on the history of their vineyards.
Yea verily, Dear Reader, I went off on an adventure to the Wild Wild West on Saturday. Wild, Wild West London, the King’s Road to be precise. My friend and I went for brunch at The Jam Tree, Chelsea, which is a popular, boozy gastropub, a stone’s throw away from Chelsea FC football ground. Was it egg-cellent? Read on to find out…
The New Year is drawing to a close and (thankfully) we will soon be leaving 2016 far behind us. To welcome 2017 it’s only right that we should greet the New Year with a glass of something special in our hands and so I present to you the Prosecco Kir Royale made with Tesco’s Finest Prosecco, possibly the easiest sparkling cocktail there is.
Christmas invokes visions of cosy blazing fires, sparkling lights on Christmas trees, turkey, mince pies and bold reds and ports to be drunk copiously with meats, cheeses and pastries. But, what about a fish course? What about a wine match for a vegetarian Christmas main course? A wine that is lighter, crisper, with pleasant acid that complements white meats, fish and vegetable courses without overpowering them. Well, let me introduce you to Tesco’s Finest Sancerre 2015 so you can go and stock up!
There are few things that I love more in this life than gin. I love gin so much I named my blog in its honour. No other booze matches its savoury, spicy, mysterious flavour, no other spirit matches its mix of botanicals and the rich tapestry of lands they originate from. So I am delighted to present to you my new Christmas cocktail, the Sparkling Sloe Gin Fizz!
Hello dear Readers! ‘Tis the season to be merry and as you know, nothing makes me merrier than a tasty cocktail! This cocktail is great for Christmas entertaining, I call it the Rudolph’s Red Nose Cocktail! Do you have a special someone you’d like to meet under the mistletoe? Or are you having a cheery bundle of friends and family over to yours? Well, pay close heed, this is the cocktail for you!
Dear Reader, the Yuletide season is upon us and soon we will be awash in Christmas leftovers; roast potatoes, gravy, pigs in blankets, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sprouts and turkey. To help you prepare for this onslaught I’ve devised a turkey and vegetable lasagne that delivers all the comfort-food feelings you need when it’s dark and cold and is also a handy way to use up your Christmas leftover roast turkey (or you can use turkey mince). This recipe is also a bit lower in calories than your regular lasagne, so no need for any feelings of guilt!
