Gin and Ginger Cocktail for Christmas made with Brockmans Gin
Brockmans is an independent English gin company set up by the founding partners, including CEO Neil Everitt. Between them, they knocked up 60 years of experience in the drinks industry and plenty of knowledge about gin distillation. In their words, “The aim was to create a gin so smooth and sensual, you would want to drink it neat over ice”. This delicious English gin is bursting with aromatic botanicals, it is soft and rounded with refreshing notes of citrus and wild berries, blended with Bulgarian coriander, blackberries, blueberries, Tuscan juniper berries, and a touch of festive bitter-sweet, Valencian orange peel. Perfect for my Gin and Ginger Christmas cocktails.
An easy Christmas Gin Cocktail with Ginger
- 50 ml Brockmans GIn
- Premium ginger ale
- 1 slither Stem ginger
- 3 blueberries
- 1 wedge lime
Fill your chilled glass with large ice cubes. The larger the better so they don’t melt as fast and water down your drink.
Pour over the gin.
Add chilled premium ginger ale by pouring it down the length of a swizzle spoon onto the ice to keep the fizz.
Garnish your Gin and Ginger cocktail with a slither of stem ginger and a wedge of lime.
I used a jar of Opies stem ginger which is a great addition to any Christmas, my father used to eat a jar in one sitting! I also added a few blueberries and a wedge of lime to garnish. The soft warmth of stem ginger and the refreshing bite of ginger ale combines beautifully with the floral notes of the botanicals and the unique taste of this sensual Gin, it really does make a fabulous Christmassy cocktail.
