Gin consumption in our household, has without a doubt, skyrocketed in recent months! We caught up with local company, Griffiths Brother to find out how we can pimp our gin and what what gin inspired cocktails we should be supping this summer. Here are their recommendations:

Spencer Cocktail

Mix together:

50ml Griffiths Brothers Autumn Special gin

25ml Giffard Abricot du Roussillon brandy

50ml fresh orange juice

Garnish with a Maraschino cherry

Griffiths Brothers Original Cucumber G&T

A favourite summer serve.

50ml chilled gin

Fever-Tree Elderflower tonic to taste

Large ice cubes

Garnish with thinly sliced cucumber (use a potato peeler) coiled around the inside of the glass.

Griffiths Brothers No.2 Signature G&T

The G&T taken to another level.

50ml of chilled gin

Fever-Tree Indian Tonic to taste

Large ice

Garnish with a large slice of pink grapefruit peel and an aromatic sprig of thyme.

Rhubarb Martini

What grows together, goes together. In this Martini, the rhubarb blends perfectly with the herbaceous fennel note of our No.2 Gin.

60ml Griffiths Brothers No.2 Gin

60ml rhubarb syrup (2.5 sticks of rhubarb simmered with 1:1 cups sugar/water then blended)

7.5ml lemon juice

15ml dry vermouth

A few drops of Boker’s Bitters

Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a trimmed rhubarb baton and a fresh fennel sprig.

Last word Cocktail

50ml of Griffiths Brothers No2

20ml green Chartreuse

20ml Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur

20ml lime juice
