Gin has fast become the fundamental feature to many of the world’s favourite cocktails, from the classic G&T to the much-loved Martini. At Walwick Hall, our dedicated mixologists invest a great deal of time and effort in perfecting our large selection of gin cocktails, which can be enjoyed in the luxurious surroundings of our Bar and Drawing Room or, when the sun’s shining, out on our spacious Garden Terrace. Here are 5 of our must-try gin cocktails for the summer.
1. Northumbrian Martini
Our refreshing Northumbrian Martini is a delicious combination of Hepple Gin, Hepple Douglas Fir distillate and La Quininye Royal Vermouth, stirred with ice and strained into a chilled coupe. The finishing touch of an Amalfi Lemon Distillate spritz adds a bright touch to this classic gin martini with a heart of Northumberland.
2. Walwick Garden Mojito Royal
Can’t decide between gin and champagne? Who says you have to? Add a little sparkle to your summer with our very own Walwick Garden Mojito Royal; a beautifully refreshing combination of gin, basil liqueur, fresh mint, local apple juice and lime juice, all topped with up with Champagne. A must-try for any gin fan.
If you haven’t tried a Bramble before, it could well become your new favourite cocktail. Gin, lemon and sugar all shaken together and poured over crushed ice, finished with a generous splash of Creme de Mure (blackberry liqueur). Fruity, refreshing and very easy to drink.
4. Warner Edwards Rhubarb Gin and Ginger Ale
Warner Edwards’ Rhubarb Gin is named after a rhubarb originally grown in the kitchen garden of Buckingham Palace during the reign of Queen Victoria. The rhubarb juice is pressed and blended with Harrington Dry Gin, resulting in a uniquely flavoured gin with a stunning colour that works exceptionally well when served with our ginger ale and a fresh orange twist. The perfect balance of sweet and sour.
5. Malfy Limone Gin & Mediterranean Tonic
Or, why not recreate your very own Italian holiday with our Malfy Limone Gin & Mediterranean Tonic. Northern Italy meets South with this brilliant gin, produced in Piedmont using Amalfi Lemons. Superbly bright and clean – perfect for enjoying in the sunshine.
