Gin and Tonic - From The Co-op

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.

Alternative #1
Mix with the Co-op’s Loved by us Sparkling Apple and Cucumber Water for a refreshing summer mixer.

Alternative #2

Makes: 1 cocktail

Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
1 shot of Co-op’s London Dry Gin
1 tsp caster sugar (or to taste)

Crushed ice to fill the glass
Fresh mint leaves (optional)

Put the lemon juice and gin into a glass. Stir in the sugar to taste and then fill the glass with crushed ice. Add lemon zest and fresh mint leaves, if using, and serve.
