Gin is officially making a comeback. Join in the gin revival with this classy gin cocktail worthy of any spy in the making (we're looking at you, James Bond!).
Apart from there being more gin-based cocktails than any other spirit, did you also know that no two gins taste the same? After the vital ingredient of juniper, there are no limits to the amount of botanicals, flavourings and spices a distillery can add, ranging from cucumber and cinnamon to lemongrass and black pepper! So be sure to experiment to find your favourite. We suggest trying a nice sloe or dry gin to give this special cocktail a flourishing finish!
