I’m guessing if you clicked on this post to read you like gin too, or you’re totally open to trying it and the amazing flavours it has. This post isn’t sponsored, I just want to throw that in first, but I was invited to the below event on a possible review basis.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know one evening last month I got a little bit tipsy with the Mr at a lovely gin event down at Prezzo, Mumbles. I’ve only been down to Mumbles a handful of times and it’s literally on my doorstep & SO pretty. This particular event was to show off Whitley Neill gin and it’s famous Rhubarb & Ginger flavoured gin (I’m hooked!)
A little bit about the event, we were taken such good care of by the Prezzo team, we were given a table of nibbles just for ourselves and a HUGE glass of gin each. Once the popup stall was all set up outside we headed out for more gin and to sit in the warmth of the heatwave watching the waves crash into the sand in front of us. I opted for the Rhubarb & Gin served with tonic water and a slice of lemon, no lie, it instantly got me craving more. Robyn had the same flavoured gin but served with ginger ale instead and a lime garnish. The pair of us loved it, we tried each other’s and quickly decided on the way home that we needed to pop into a shop and buy a bottle. (It was HARD, let me tell you that, we went into 3 stores to find it, eventually we found the very last bottle, see it really is popular!)
So, let’s get into making 2 perfect gin cocktails that will suit your taste preferences.
A pretty iridescent tumbler isn’t necessary but it will most likely make the experience 10% better.
I opted for Rhubarb & Ginger Whitley Neill Gin served with lemonade and lemon.
To make; Start with a handful of ice, pour your single or double gin (Tip: for a single, measure the width of one finger for a double measure two fingers width) Next, pour in your lemonade (chilled is much nicer), I chopped my lemon slices into 4 smaller pieces and stirred them into the cocktail. (If you don’t have a stirrer, just take a fork and turn it upside down using the handle gently to mix)
Robyn always opts for Rhubarb & Ginger Whitley Neill Gin served with ginger ale and lime.
Start by pouring a single or a double with the Rhubard & Ginger Whitley Neill Gin then top up with your ginger ale mixer (ginger ale can usually be purchased from the soft drinks aisle) splash in some lime slices and ice, crushed or classic, your choice. Stir this all together and you have the perfect ginger infused alcoholic cocktail at home.
