Gin-tastic Cocktails!

Wine at Christmas: Uncategorised |


Gin is an incredibly versatile spirit, and is the basis for some of the original, classic cocktails, and can be used for so much more than and G&T (we love those too, of course!)


See below for some suggestions for your next get together.





JN French 75


30ml of Shortcross Citrus Drizzle


Teaspoon of sugar


15ml of Lemon Juice


JN Sparkling to top


Pour the lemon juice, sugar syrup and gin into a cocktail shaker then fill up with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled glass. Top with JN Sparkling and garnish with a thin strip of lemon peel.







Basque Martini


50ml of Bodegas Astobiza Dry Gin


10ml Bodegas Astobiza White Vermouth


1 teaspoon of olive brine


1 olive to garnish


Add Gin, Vermouth and Olive brine to a mixing glass filled with ice. Resist the urge to utter “Shaken, not stirred” and proceed to stir the cocktail until the glass becomes icy cold. Strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with an olive.







Shortcross Cask Aged Gin Negroni


30ml of Shortcross Cask Aged Gin


30ml of Quady Sweet Vermouth

Orange peel
