Gin and Ginger Cocktail, with Darnley’s Gin

Spice up your life this Christmas with not a gin and tonic or a gin and juice but a gin and ginger cocktail.

For extra fun this season, Darnley’s has drummed up this gloriously festive tipple with Darnley’s Spiced Gin, ginger ale and a clove studded orange.

Darnley’s Spiced Gin’s warming spices of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg scream Christmas especially when lifted with a kick of spicy ginger ale.

To make things even more festive, you can even whip up a batch of Darnley’s Spiced Gin-gerbread Biscuits on the side.

The Darnley’s Gin & Lemon Drizzle Cake got top marks from us last summer. Could this be the ultimate festive gin and food pairing? Have a go at home with Darnley’s super simple recipe for a G&G below.
