What’s that sound? Oh yes, the congratulatory cheer that it’s 1) Pay Day Weekend 2) you totally nailed Dry January and 3) Galentine’s and /or Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!
Here at House of Coco we don’t always give Valentine’s Day the celebration it deserves. But, whether you are lucky in love, feeling a bit unloved or couldn’t give a monkeys…this year we’re going for it – any excuse for a little party, right?
To kick you off we’d like to introduce you to the gorgeous Edgerton Pink Gin which contains Damiana, a natural aphrodisiac! Pink gin is actually a traditionally nautical tipple, initially as a cure for sea sickness- let’s see how we can use it as an antidote to sickly sweet V-day selfies with these sassy Edgerton Pink Negronis…
120g golden caster sugar
3 cloves, pinch of black pepper
Zest of 2 oranges
1 cinnamon stick
500ml Edgerton Original Pink Gin
Add all of the ingredients, except for the gin, to a small Pan. Gently bring the mixture to the boil then simmer over a low heat for 8-10 minutes, until it forms light syrup.
Take off the heat and leave to cool. Pour the cooled syrup and its infusions into a glass bottle and top up with the gin.
Shake well and store for at least 2 weeks to infuse.
