It seems like only yesterday that we were enjoying the festive season and here we are now less than a month away from Valentine’s Day. Although, much like Christmas, it looks like being a ‘lockdown’ Valentine this year, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t enjoy a cosy evening at home with your loved one.
So, we thought we’d take a look at how we could cheer you up with one of these fabulous gifts from Pinkster Gin to add a little romantic sparkle into your Valentine’s Day this year.
First up is the Pinkster Gimlet which has just been launched this year and is Pinkster’s first pre-made cocktail, perfect for lockdown home drinking. Made with Pinkster Gin, lime juice and sugar syrup, it is a subtle twist on the cocktail known for having the perfect balance of tangy sweetness and an ice-cold taste of dry gin.
Although the Gimlet is traditionally drunk in a Martini glass, Pinkster also recommend serving in an iced-filled wine glass and topping it up with some chilled sparkling water.
RRP: £26.00 for 70 cl ABV: 17.4% and available from www.pinkstergin.com
The Pinkster Gin Home Tasting Kit for Two comes with five different serves that includes the potent Pinkster Gimlet cocktail and a Hedgepig fruit gin liqueur made with foraged wild bullace and quince. The full kit contains:
5cl Pinkster Gin
5cl Pinkster Royale
5cl Pinkster Gimlet (pre-mixed cocktail)
5cl Hedgepig Wild Bullace and Quince

Finally, there is the Pinkster 70 cl bottle, which is the original pink gin made with real raspberries and is deliciously dry with a hint of fruit and an extremely smooth finish. The perfect drink to enjoy with your valentine at home this Valentine’s Day.
RRP: £36.00 for 70 cl ABV: 37.5% and available from www.pinkstergin.com, Ocado and Master of Malt.
