Enjoy Gin in the Winter

Yes, you can enjoy Gin all year round!

While gin & tonic still makes up 90% of gin sales, that is slowly changing. If you live in Spain where gin is king, one can enjoy a G & T anytime. However, here in Canada or the UK, where winter can be so cold a warmer drink is far more enjoyable.  The answer – change the tonic for a good Ginger Ale or Ginger Beer depending on the cocktail.

One of my favorites is ” The Buck.” See picture above.

Make the same proportion you do with a G &T with a good Ginger Ale. Fever Tree EG or a less expensive Ginger Ale would be Sussex made in New Brunswick. Add a slice of lemon and try it with the traditional predominately Juniper London Dry Gins.

Beefeater would be fine or if you prefer craft gins, Sipsmiths or Portobello Road would work well.

Also, experience with various styles of gin with food. I like lots of curries in the winter and either a gin neat or a mixer with ginger ale would be a great paring for curry.
