Maybe it’s because we’re hankering for a spot of bright sunshine, but recently we’ve been embracing coloured G&Ts. From the glorious orange of Malfy’s Con Arancia to the striking purple of violet gin, coloured gin both looks and tastes incredible in your glass.
Case in point: Persian Blue Marshmallow Gin. Created by the The Handmade Gin Company, this gin is made from marshmallow root giving it a fruity flavour.
Expect a little sweetness in your glass without it being overpowering. Lovers of all things sweet may be picturing a mound of soft and fluffy treats, but marshmallow root is actually a herb.
As well as being the core ingredient in everybody’s favourite fireside friend, it’s also found in tea, supplements and tinctures. It’s said to have medicinal properties so if you’re suffering from a dry cough or digestive problems, this gin might just have secret healing powers.
It certainly looks the part. A vibrant shade of blue, it’s definitely one to dig out for your next gin party.
Coloured gin can really make a statement. Yet, by adding a quality light tonic water, plenty of ice and a curl of lemon peel to a martini glass, it’s a pretty low maintenance way to achieve coloured cocktail splendour.
Then there’s the bottle. Featuring a super sassy cat, it could be the perfect present for any gin and cat lovers in your life.
Currently, you can pick it up over on Amazon for £33.90 or find even more coloured cocktail inspiration below.
