ARTICLE: Gin cocktails

I have to confess that I'm not a big fan of gin cocktails, and very much prefer a gin combined with a mixer - but for many, they are very popular so here's a few that I've come across recently


The Seaside Basil Bennet


Featuring Edinburgh Seaside gin, this is made with lime, basil syrup and a dash of bitters, and is a twist on the classic Gimlet


Blueberry and Rosemary Twist


Add Caorunn Gin, fresh Blueberries, Lemon juice, sugar and 4 small Rosemary sprigs to a shaker and shake until cold. Fine strain the mixture into a rocks glass filled with ice and then top up with prosecco, garnish with a sprig of Rosemary.

Brockmans Negroni


Add 30 ml Brockmans gin, 30 ml (rosso) red vermouth and 30 ml Campari into a shaker with a handful of ice.

Shake and strain into an ice cube filled Old Fashioned glass and give it a stir.

Serve with an orange slice.

(This is probably the one that I would personally like to try most)
