Beefeater Blood Orange Gin

This isn’t a new gin flavour as such, but it is a newbie to Beefeater. I am pretty much obsessed with all things blood orange so when Beefeater Blood Orange Gin was released, it was a must try.  There are 10 different botanicals in this gin ranging from coriander seed, liquorice root, lemon peel and of course Seville orange peel and blood orange flavour. This gin promises fresh citrus flavours of blood orange that tune perfectly with the classic notes of juniper and citrus of Beefeater Gin.  When news broke that the Beefeater Blood Orange Gin was hitting shelves, it…

Kopparberg Strawberry and Lime Gin

Their cider may have been our summer companions but things maybe about to change. Yes after hitting Greene King pubs, the shelves are now being stocked with Kopparberg Strawberry and Lime Gin. Using one of their best selling cider flavours was a really smart move in their first step into the spirit world, and is sure to hook Kopparberg fans in. So what’s the deal with Kopparberg Strawberry and Lime Gin? “Kopparberg Premium Gin is double distilled over a two-week period.

I’m relatively late to the gin party and only really started enjoying it a couple of years back. Whitley Neill Pink Grapefruit Gin is a newbie, and I first spotted it in Asda back in February.

This was exclusive to Asda, both in-stores and online, however you can now find this online on other drink outlets. RRP is £25.00 but is usually on offer in Asda for…

We Are Tea Sleep Tea

Sometimes we all need a little help to catch some Zzzz’s. I have tried the holistic method with Tisserand Little Sleep Kit and now it is the turn of a good old cuppa thanks to We Are Tea Sleep Tea*.  Part of their Super Tea range We are Tea have created a whole host of teas that not only do good for your body but also taste good. I am first to put my hand up and say lavender tea would not be my first choice. In fact it would come way, way, way, way down the list of teas to…

Party Seasons: Champagne & Prosecco Cocktails

We are getting close to the glitz, the glamour and the festivities and a glass of bubbles couldn’t be more perfect at such a time. It is tradition that the bubbles are flowing in our house on Christmas Day, as well as throwing in a few cocktail creations thereafter to see us through to New Year. So naturally I cannot think of a better time to share some champagne and prosecco cocktails to really get us in the party spirit, and perhaps give you some drink inspiration.  Last year I put together a few recipes of varying cocktails, FYI The Sparkling…
