If your significant other is something of a gin connoisseur, show them you care by picking up a bottle of Fordington Gin’s Cupid’s Bow, a deliciously pink gin with flavours of strawberry, hibiscus and a hint of vanilla. It’s the perfect gin for an atmospheric lockdown date, whether you’re in the same household or meeting up with a glass each over Zoom.
Best enjoyed over ice, it is a versatile drink that works well in cocktails, allowing you to create something that is as unique as your relationship. The flavour works well with lemon, mint, basil, rosemary, sugar, black pepper and cardamon should you want to create your own, or the team at Fordington have come up a little romantic recipe of their own.
Ros and the team suggest the following:
Put four strawberries, three basil leaves and two teaspoons of sugar into a cocktail shaker and mash together with a cocktail muddler.
Once thoroughly mashed, add ice to half way up the shaker and halfway fill a tall glass.
Pour in two good measures of Cupid’s Bow Gin and a squeeze of lemon juice – pop on the lid and shake!
Finally, strain into chilled glasses over ice, top with Fever Tree tonic and enjoy!
Of course, that isn’t the only thing you can do with Cupid’s Bow, why not add it to ice cream or your favourite strawberry/mint smoothies for something a little different? If you and your partner get a bottle this Valentine’s make sure to share your recipes with us!
