Festive Cocktails with Hendrick’s Gin

Hendrick’s Gin isn’t just great in a restorative after-work G&T but also is an interesting ingredient in Christmas inspired cocktails. Here are two of our favourites…

  • Small slice Orange
  • One fresh Pineapple
  • 4 spoons Honey
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 3 Cloves
  • A pinch nutmeg

Add all ingredients to a saucepan and place on the heat. Let the concoction simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Taste, adding lemon or honey depending on whether you like sweet or sour. When it’s ready, pour into a teapot and serve in teacups. Alternatively serve in a traditional punch bowl. Can be reheated so you can make ahead.
