10 Fabulous Ways to Drink Gin

It's World Gin Day on Saturday! The perfect excuse to get the girls together for gin tasting. There's more to this drink than the classic G&T. Here are 10 fabulous ways to drink gin. Turns out it goes with everything - ice cream, cupcakes, sorbet. Who knew?

Cucumber Ginsicles

Basically a pimped up G&T. If you want to be really posh, add whitecurrants to the mix. Sort of thing you get in Waitrose. Perfect for summer hen parties and a truly fabulous way to drink gin.

Breakfast Martini

Gin at breakfast? Hell yes! Combine gin with Cointreau, marmalade, lemon juice and a slice of orange, and you have a Breakfast Martini.

Strawberry Gin Smash

Muddle mint with fresh strawberries, gin and sugar. Top with a splash of soda. A bit like a Mojito, only with gin as its base spirit. Genius. Thank you sofeminine.co.uk!

G&T Cupcakes

Pop these into your hen party goodie bags and the girls will be well chuffed. Now you can eat and drink gin! Get the recipe at Bake It Instinct

G&T Ice Cream Float

The ultimate summer cocktail. Get the recipe here

Gin and Pink Grapefruit Sorbet

This cheeky little number was brought to you courtesy of the clever folks at House & Garden. Enjoy!

Gin and Lemon Chicken

A truly marvellous main! Get the recipe from the Food Network or try it with chicken wings at Yummly.

Bees Knees

Basically gin, honey and lemon, these were popular back in the prohibition era. Perfect if you're planning a 1920s-themed hen party and want suitably fabulous ways to drink gin.

Make your own sloe gin

Add sloe berries to gin, pop in a jar and leave somewhere nice and cool for six months. Voila! You have homemade gin to give people as Christmas presents. Be smug! Go to Miss Food Wise and follow her instructions.

Cranberry & Gin Sauce

Christmas dinner just got better! If you can't be bothered making your own sauce, just wang some gin on the pudding instead of brandy. Great tip from the lovely people at Gin Monkey.
