This is one of those cocktails that just makes you effortlessly cool. I like a good Martini but I always have the worry of the glass being too fragile while I’m drinking it. I’m concerned that one decent sneeze and the glass would explode. And don’t even get me started on walking between 2 points with that glass! It’s like a bloody wave pool.
Don’t walk away, seriously! This works. If you like your drinks a little stronger, then this one is for you. No one in my family likes what basically amounts to drinking straight spirits, apart from me. So I got to enjoy this one all to myself. I was in one of those situations where everyone tried it, pulled a face, said it was nice but too strong and handed it back to me. So I got one compliment and that’s all I need.
I recently received a wonderful email. A far cry from my usual spam and newsletters I’ve signed up for.
Gordon’s asked me if I would be willing to write a blog post about their gin. Willing? Like I was going to say no? They even sent me a bottle to get me started on my gin based adventure. I knew this blogging malarky would eventually pay off!
Do you remember, as a child, that time when you put ice cream in lemonade? It was a revelation, right?!
You were just messing about, being a child, and you created something utterly delicious.
That’s what I wanted to capture with this drink. I wanted the whimsy of youth mixed with a little refinement that comes with age. So I created the G&T Earl Grey Float.
