Step into Summer With Gin Cocktails!
Do you know it’s World Gin Day on 9th June 2018 (do we really need an excuse?) Well I don’t for sure. So the lovely people at Jawbox Gin have offered one lucky Easy peasy lemon squeezy reader the opportunity to win a lovely bottle so you can make you very own Jawbox Gin Cocktails!
Sunshine & Gin Cocktails
Sunshine and Gin Cocktails are a match made in heaven, so why not make your own Jawbox Gin cocktails at home?
Jawbox is a classic style juniper-led gin that starts on the palate with citrus and juniper developing into pepper and subtle rootiness.
It is triple-distilled very slowly in traditional copper pot stills and in small batches using a unique combination of botanicals including local Belfast Black Mountain Heather.
Distilled near Belfast, at the Jawbox Distillery located on a 300-acre 16th-century estate where the grain for the spirit is grown and harvested, Jawbox Gin is perfect for the adventurous, confident and curious gin drinker.
Belfast has famously created many things, from mighty ships to delicate linens.
However, there is another, perhaps less well-known gift the city has given the world: zesty, refreshing ginger ale, which goes perfectly with Jawbox Gin.
The gin is named in honour of the deep, boxy Belfast sink which became a focal point in many a kitchen – where most conversations took place. And so it got its own nickname: THE JAWBOX.
So have a go at winning a bottle so you can make your very own Jawbox Gin Cocktails!

And if you like Gin based cocktails you’ll possible like this Tarty Tom Collins!
The Tom Collins is a Collins cocktail made from gin, lemon juice, sugar, and carbonated water. First memorialized in writing in 1876 by Jerry Thomas, “the father of American mixology”, this “gin and sparkling lemonade” drink is typically served in a Collins glass over ice. A “Collins mix” can be bought premixed at stores and enjoyed alone (like a soft drink) or with gin. However why exactly would you do this when you have the lovely easy recipe 🙂
