Co-op own label gin - and tonic
Gin is most definitely trendy again; and in case you missed it, June 11th was World Gin Day.
The Co-op’s award-winning Special Dry London Gin (70cl, £11.99) has notes of juniper, coriander, Angelica and Cubeb Berries. Apparently.
Mix 1 -3 parts gin with 3 parts tonic water for a classic G&T and garnish with a slice of lemon.
Refreshing, sharp with pleasing citrus-quinine bitterness.
Match with spicy pre-meal snacks, such as wasabi peas, cheese-and-jalapeno nachos and crispy wonton rolls.
Mix with the Co-op’s Loved by us Sparkling Apple and Cucumber Water for a refreshing summer mixer.
