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

What’s that sound?

2017/01/27

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…

Ingredients

120g golden caster sugar

3 cloves, pinch of black pepper

Zest of 2 oranges

1 cinnamon stick

500ml Edgerton Original Pink Gin

Method

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.
