Sipping on Gin & Juice – Pink Cocktails to get you in the mood

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.
