Three festive cocktails for your New Year's Eve celebrations and beyond.
Remember - there are twelve days of Christmas, so the start of January isn't all doom and gloom.
The Nantwich Gin Range.
Classic Nantwich Gin Martini
A simplistic, elegant cocktail.
50ml Nantwich Gin
1 tbsp Vermouth
Chill a martini glass in the freezer. Combine the Nantwich Gin, vermouth and ice into
a cocktail shaker or a jug. Make it shaken or stirred: agitate until the exterior
becomes chilled, a little longer if you prefer more dilution. Strain into your glass and
garnish with a twist of lemon peel.
Berry Christmas Bramble
A spiced blackberry treat!
50ml Sweet Briar Gin
For the spiced syrup: Gently heat sugar and water on the stove. Add some cinnamon
sticks and heat until simmering. Set aside for an hour, allowing the mixture to cool
and the cinnamon to steep. Once cooled, the syrup can be strained and can be kept
in the fridge to use again for up to a month.
Combine the gin, a generous dash of lemon juice, some muddled blackberries and
syrup into a shaker with ice. Shake for thirty seconds, then strain into a tumbler over
crushed ice. Garnish with fresh blackberries and a cinnamon stick.
Matron’s Gin Hot Toddy
A warming tipple for citrus lovers.
50ml Matron’s Strength Gin
25ml Lemon Juice
Add the spices into a pan of water. Bring to the boil, then let it simmer for 10-15
minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the lemon juice (to your
preference), gin and honey. Pour into a heatproof glass or mug, and garnish with a
lemon slice and cinnamon stick.
Wishing you all a fabulous New Year's Eve. Stay safe, drink responsibly and enjoy!
