Co-owner of vintage horse box bar, The Gin Inn, Hannah Jackson shares her inside knowledge on the best gin cocktails to serve guests on your big day!
Gin, Cloudy Apple, Elderflower, Mint and Lime
Why? This quintessentially British cocktail is perfect for boho weddings in the rolling countryside. The ‘Country Garden’ classic is super-refreshing and incredibly more-ish on a hot summer’s day.
Prosecco with a touch for Elderflower Gin and a raspberry Why? Why not? Gin (has to be Nibbs!) & prosecco make the perfect pairing for any celebration – particularly a wedding! This heady combo tastes delicious and looks fantastic served with a sweet Scottish raspberry. We’ll raise a glass of four to that!
Six Dogs Blue Gin, Elderflower Tonic (Fever Tree) and Rose Petals
Why? Everyone comes back for more of this! So it’s no surprise to hear that the Six Dogs Blue Gin derives its name from the Blue Pea flower, aka Clitoria Ternatea (yep, you heard that right) – known for its aphrodisiac qualities in traditional medicine! The striking blue colour of this gin is a party piece on its own, yet the alchemy of this magical botanical is that it changes to a light pink colour when mixed with a good tonic! A rare find from Cape Town that you won’t find in many bars!
Rhubarb and Ginger Gin with Ginger Ale served with Rhubarb and Ginger Why? The dreamy combo of tart English rhubarb, with the spicy kick of ginger has become a favourite with gin aficionados. Perfect in a classic G&T, or add ginger beer over plenty of ice for a splendid summer tipple
Tanqueray de Silva with Mediterranean tonic and fresh orange Why? This Mediterranean beauty is made using the essence from bittersweet, ripening, oranges grown on sun-drenched trees in Seville. Balanced beautifully with Tanqueray London dry gin and served with Mediterranean tonic and fresh orange. One sip and you’ll be transported straight to the seductive city of Seville.
