I would really like to try gin. A nice flavour one. Also what would you drink with the gin as I've never tried gin can you get a strawberry gin flavour at all.?
JSL52 · 09/04/2021 19:26
You can get hundreds of flavours.
A normal gin and tonic with ice and lemon eg Gordon's or Tanqueray.
Lots of pink gins , these are sweet , you can have them with tonic (different flavours ) or lemonade.
Also gin liqueurs which you can have neat with ice.
Rhubarb and ginger with ginger ale , the possibilities are endless.

Yes you can get strawberry gin
My favourites are rhubarb and ginger, sloe gin or elderflower all with ice and tonic

I like my gin with sparkling water or posh 'light' tonic water if I'm feeling flush....Fevertree is nice. Gordon's do nice lemon gin, the pink gin is nice but sweeter. Not Gordon's but there is a really nice orange gin around (it might be a tanquaray). Or just get a nice dry gin and add different flavour mixers.

This one is by far my favourite. I like my flavoured gins.

I'm a purist.... and also diabetic, so avoid the syrupy flavoured ones.
I don't think you can beat Hendricks with a slice of cucumber and ice cold tonic. We were given a bottle of Tarquin's cornish gin for xmas which was very good too.

Ellon Strawberry gin is by far the best gin I have ever tried. It tastes like strawberry jam as it's pure fruit - mix with lemonade 😋

I make my own gin, it's very easy to do. Household favourite ones I make are pink gin and a citrus one . I'm going to try and extend my 'range' to make gifts for Christmas but no idea which flavours yet.
If I buy gin though Hendricks Luna gin is something else. Love that stuff.

Oh, gin, I love this drink so much. It's worth a try. You will definitely like it. Very few people have heard that they do not like this drink. It is a drink that you must enjoy. I prefer sweet gin. If you also like sweet drinks, I recommend you taste raspberry and sweet basil-flavored gin from BOE. It is incredibly delicious. I usually drink in the evening with my husband, enjoying some fruit besides that. We are so passionate about gin that we found a company that makes personalized glasses, charms, bottles, and jugs for gin. We have a lot at home.
