Gin based cocktail for your Valentine?

There is such pressure on the perfect present for Valentine ’s Day but sometimes having a bit of fun and making a special event at home can be more of a treat. Staying in and making a special meal accompanied by a classy cocktail in your delightful Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford home can be a lot let stressful than a hectic night out.

If you ask around some of the most memorable Valentine’s Days have been spent at home, celebrating with your special other person or some of a wider group of favourite people. So before you pick up the phone to make a reservation and go the traditional dinner route, have a bit of a think about mixing it up by planning something special at home.

Whether you decide to flex your culinary skills with a multi-coursed home cooked meal for someone special or are planning a low key night in with the girls. A pink gin cocktail can offer some sweet but punchy, saucy, romantic, fun.

The botanicals of gin make it a fascinating liquor to explore. It has characteristics that no other liquor has; one brand can have a completely different profile from another. Gin is also the foundation for some of the best drinks ever made, including the iconic Martini.
How about trying the Floradora this February 14th is a little bit more obscure than the other cocktails but it proves the beauty of gin and raspberry, and everyone who tries it falls in love with it.

It is made by mixing gin, lime, raspberry and ginger ale and if you have yet to try it you are missing out on a hidden gem of the cocktail scene. Other gin cocktails are available to enjoy in the comfort of your own Chigwell home.
