Utterly unique, this unashamedly unfiltered gin retains all the warmth from the macerated ginger root, smashed nutmeg, cinnamon and tonka beans, recalling that delicious sense of joy from all your favourite festivities like Christmas, Easter or Halloween. It’s your new happy place.
We recommend trying it neat on ice, or with soda, or ginger beer or with blood orange soda. For a more summery cocktail try our Gingerbread Sunset which contains Gingerbread Gin, Aperol, lime juice, ginger beer & Angostura Bitters! For those that like milky/creamy cocktails, you can try our recipe for Gingerbread Gin Alexander or see below for our delicious new Gingerbread Gin Egg Nog.
Xmas Recipe Idea: Gingerbread Gin Egg Nog (serves 4-5 people)
150ml The Craft & Co Gingerbread Gin
250ml cream (some extra cream for whipping to garnish at end)
½ cup sugar (less if you don’t want it too sweet)
3 x egg yolks
1 x star anise
1 x whole nutmeg (or 1tsp ground nutmeg)
1 x tsp vanilla bean paste (1 vanilla pod seed)
1 x tsp ground cinnamon (or whole cinnamon stick)
-Heat milk and cream on low heat, add vanilla paste, ¼ grated nutmeg & star aniseed
-Combine cream, yolks and sugar together, once milk is hot (but before simmer and boil) whisk in egg mix
-Continuously stir mixture for about 10min, but do not allow to boil! Slowly add Gingerbread Gin.
This is then ready to serve in warm martini glass or wine glass. However, this cocktail works very well chilled (especially for our summer Christmas in Australia). All you’d need to do is let the Gingerbread Gin Egg Nog get to room temperature before putting in the fridge and ready to take out and serve on Christmas Day or whenever you feel like it really!
Whip up some fresh cream, add a dollop whipped cream on top of your egg nog mix, sprinkle with cinnamon (or add cinnamon stick or dehydrated orange slice) and grated nutmeg. Voila!
