  • Gin & Tonic cake

    Here at the Gin Box we’ve been hearing a lot about gin and tonic cake and we’ve tried a couple of examples that were pretty good so we decided to give it a go ourselves. Now there is a minor issue in that we don’t really bake.

    We can certainly cook a mean roast dinner and BBQ like a trooper but baking has never really featured highly on the skill set. Cue our good friends at Social Pantry in London. They’ve got lots of experience with gin and tonic and more importantly lots and lots of experience with excellent cake.

  • Gardeners Respite

    We created our own recipe centric around the marvellously fresh Principe de los apostles.

    Its' Mojito-esque flavour suits the eucalyptus in the Principe perfectly. And the light addition of caraway helps bring this out even more.

  • Rhubarb Gimlet

    There are multiple variants of this recipe around. We started with Warner Edwards' own and offer up the addition of pink peppercorns and coriander seeds to add a little spice if you like.

    Personally, I find Warner Edwards Rhubarb sweet enough, though they recommend adding a little lime cordial to the recipe to sit in the mix.

  • Gin Sour (with Aperol)

    You can use any London Dry for this recipe. Jenson's is an excellent choice, or better still our Two Birds Cocktail Gin is designed for purpose, and it comes in a 200ml bottle at just £13!

    Egg whites not only bring together flavors; they also give a cocktail a silky texture. The Aperol in the recipe doubles as light sweetener, so forget the syrup and go pro. Aromatic bitters are used as garnish to finish and add aroma.

  • Gower (GŴYR) Prohibition Cocktail

    GŴYR aka Gower gin recommend their "Prohibition" cocktail.

    As decadent and delicious as the 1920s

    It's a naughty twist on a gin fizz, normally a common mix for a gin liqueur. 

    We substituted the sugar in their recipe for a little honey and recommend the addition of grapefruit peel to garnish and a little soft zest to the finish.

  • Fours Pillars' "Who Shot Tom Collins"

    A bloody twist on a tall classic.

    Four Pillars is a small Australian distillery creating delicious gin from the Yarra Valley. They publish cocktail recipes regularly and we think this one is just delicious.

    Their bloody Shiraz has a burst of raspberries on the nose and its this that hits you immediately, followed by cassia bark gliding through underneath.
