Elderflower & Rasberry makes a fun G&T. Add our exotic Jasmine Gin infused with Elderflower, lemon juice, raspberry gomme, and 5 perfect raspberries. Top with tonic and serve.
#3: On the Rocks
A cold icy drink is a must for a summer cocktail but when it comes to Gin and other liquors the right balance matters. Too much ice and you have a watered-down bland drink. Not enough ice or chill and your drink will be flat.
Here are a few drinks and how to serve them for the perfect temp and flavour:
Although this simple yet powerful drink is often thought of around the holidays, Negroni can make an unctuous summer cocktail as well. For a great flavoured Negroni use the right glassware, an old-fashioned, and chill in a freezer. Stir in Barentsz Gin, Campari, and Sweet Vermouth with ice and stir until chilled. Strain into your glass filled with ice cubes. Orange curl for a fragrant garnish.
Metro relayed that “This Jasmine Gin is so smooth you can drink it straight”. For a simple yet classic drink, pour over ice and serve with a twist of orange.
This classic can be just right if you use top-quality gin and tonic. Use a highball and build each ingredient. We recommend Fever Tree or 1724 Tonic.
#2: Tea-Time Cocktails
What is better than a tea-time cocktail party. Earl Grey pairs perfectly with our Barentsz Exotic Jasmine Gin to create Earl Grey Tea Gin Collins and Martinis.
Here is another fun cocktail that features Lady Grey Tea:
The Tea Lady features premium Barentsz Gin, Lady Grey tea that has been brewed and cooled, lemon juice, and simple syrup, and 1 egg white. Add all the ingredients and shake well. Strain into a chilled Coupe glass. Enjoy Barentsz Gin with a scrumptious tea at The Marleybone.
#1: Flavoured Gin
Last, but not least for the ultimate wow-factor try a flavoured Gin to make your party stand out. We are so excited to present our new offering, Barentsz Mandarin & Jasmine Gin. Although, lovely for winter-time holidays as well, citrus is perfect all-year-round. Serve neat or in a cocktail of your choice.
