Ginuary gin number 2.

Raspberry gin & tonic. So tasty!

I’m enjoying getting to experiment a bit with different gin for Ginuary. And I’m also loving that I’m not one of the people who is struggling with dry January the second weekend into the month. I can understand people’s reasoning behind it. But one of the perks of not having a job last month was that I didn’t feel like I’d overdone it during December.

I’ve had the Edinburgh Gin Raspberry Liqueur for a while and really only added it to prosecco up until now. The wee bottle of Edinburgh Gin was also a Christmas present from Mark’s brother for Christmas. I got a lot of gin from Mark’s family, they insisted they don’t think I’m an alcoholic…. I’m not sure why, but I hadn’t really thought of using the gin liqueurs with gin as part of a cocktail. Strange I know. This Raspberry G&T tasted delicious.

To make you’ll need:

  • 25ml gin (I used Edinburgh Gin)
  • 25ml Edinburgh Gin Raspberry Liqueur 
  • can of tonic water
  • raspberries (I used frozen raspberries)
  • ice

Add all the ingredients to a glass, (I used a Copa glass which was also a Christmas gift to go with the many gins I got!), pop a straw in and enjoy! I never really thought much about the kind of glass used and how much difference it would make to the drink. But apparently, it does. My drink did stay chilled for longer.

I really liked the addition of the raspberry liqueur in this gin and tonic and as the frozen raspberries started to melt it only added to the taste. And colour which ended up a really nice vibrant red.

Do you have any suggestions or cocktail recipes for the raspberry liqueur?
