Are you feeling stuck and bored on lockdown? Wondering what to do with yourself? Well, how about some fun things to do at home with your favourite tipple? These are some of our favourite activities that we have managed to gincorporate into our lockdown lethargy!
Boozy but Refreshing
With all this glorious weather we are getting, why wouldn't you want a fun icy version of your favourite drink? Gin and tonic ice lollies! A combination of yummy gin and tonic in a frozen sweet treat that will cool you right down! Great for an afternoon in the garden with a good book. Plus, you can freeze in what ever garnishes take your fancy! We’ve been looking for some easy recipes and we think you will love this one! Enjoy!
Ping Pong with a Twist of Gin
Have you ever played beer pong? Well, it’s the very same concept here! Simply put shots of your favourite gin in your cups, set them out securely into triangles and start tossing those ping pong balls into your opponent’s cups! If your ball lands in their cup they have to drink the shot. The aim of the game is to clear all your opponent’s cups. You can get a great version of gin pong right here. We don’t recommend any operating of heavy machinery after this game though!
Fancy a bit of a gamble? How about this fun game? Simply spin the roulette wheel and let luck decide what you’ll be drinking next! This game is great for a laugh and can be played by 2 to 8 people! Just fill the shot glasses with various beverages, alcoholic or otherwise and away you go. You can use water, wine, spirits, liqueurs, whatever takes your fancy and you can be as daring as you wish! Find a great set here!
Piece of Cake
Is baking more your thing? Since all this lockdown craziness, we are all getting a little more creative in the kitchen. Why not try this fabulous recipe for a gin and tonic cake? Light and very refreshing, it’s something different that should please the family. A great cake for the beautiful spring we are having. We would actually have a slice along with a nice cool glass of gin and tonic, but then we like to have our cake and eat it too!
Fun with YouTube
We don’t know if you’ve noticed but there are a fair few channels on YouTube dedicated to gin and other spirits. Why not have a bit of a browse and see if you can create some of the wild and wonderful cocktails on there? We especially love this one. It’s a great video showing some delicious gin and tonic combinations by a professional bartender. Yum!
Virtual Tea Party...with Gin!
Missing your gin pals? How about a virtual gin tea party? Arrange a date and time with your besties to do a bit of group Facetiming and make sure you all have a refreshing gin drink, plus some nice treats too. It may not be as good as meeting in person, but you can still have a good gossip while having your favourite drink!
We hope you enjoyed these gin inspired activities. Of course, it goes without saying to drink responsibly and in the current situation, only take part in these activities with people in your household. Stay safe!
