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
5cl Triple Distilled Gin (the base gin for Pinkster)
200ml Fever-Tree Indian Tonic
200ml Fever-Tree Ginger Ale
A few sachets of Pinkster Gin Jam Cocktail Mix and a mini jar of Pinkster Gin Jam.
RRP: £30 and also available from: www.pinkstergin.com
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.
