Chocolate gin cocktail with McQueen Chocolate Mint Gin


The Gin Kin is a very sweet tooth friendly place. When it comes to Hot Cross Bun Gin, sweets nostalgia, the best liqueur for summer, we’re keen to discover them all.

It’s Easter weekend, so you just have to shake up some chocolately, boozy goodness. Chocolate cocktails aren’t just the domain of Bailey’s or vodka. Gin, especially the totally moreish McQueens Chocolate Mint Gin, is the perfect spirit.

This recipe is dead easy, too. No bain maries. But for full chocolatey goodness, it’s worth doing the chocolate ganache. Then just dump and shake.
