Festive Gin-Based Holiday Cocktails

Posted by Bryan / December 13, 2013

Looking to break out of the humdrum of Egg Nog and Mulled Wine? Check out these delicious recipes!

Many think of Gin as a summer spirit - great in G&Ts, Collins variations and herbaceous drinks offset by cool and refreshing cucumber. During the winter months, many palates turn towards spiced rum and mulled wine/cider. These two recipes, courtesy of Manny Vides and Bombay Sapphire, demonstrate how you can use gin year-round for a perennial pick-me-up.

The cover photo (above) features the Sapphire Pommes D'Hiver. Think of this as an elegant variation on warm cider. The base recipe is simple, but you can always jazz it up with a sprig of thyme, some powdered ginger, or (if you're feeling adventurous) a dash of ground Szechwan peppercorns .

Sapphire Pommes D'Hiver
1 1/2 oz Bombay Sapphire
3 oz apple cider
Sliced apple (we like to use tart Granny smith)
Grated cinnamon (and other spices to taste).

Add Bombay Sapphire and cider into a rock glass. Sprinkle cinnamon and spices on top.
Garnish with sliced apple and a cinnamon stick.



If you're looking for something a little less sweet and more herbaceous, try the Merry Maple Collins. The maple syrup adds a nice touch of depth, while the acidity of the lemon juice keeps things fresh. The simplicity of the drink really allows the balanced flavour profile of the gin to emerge.

Merry Maple Collins
1 1/2 oz Bombay Sapphire
1 oz fresh lemon juice (you can use the pre-made stuff, but the flavour won't be as bright)
1/2 pure maple syrup
Club Soda

Add Bombay Sapphire, lemon juice and maple syrup into a highball or collins glass. Add ice and stir vigorously. Fill with soda (carefully) until you're two inches from the top. Mix again and then fill rest of the way with soda. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary

The fruit is able to dictate when one eats thus minimizing body
weight. The meta-analysis published in Journal of Obesity in 2011 was performed in the previous year
by scientists at the University of Exeter in the UK.
I will get a plate of food and only eat half of the food that is on there.
This is particularly true for most overweight and obese people
who are struggling with weight control. In this position you can see your full lid
clearly without the need to use your fingers to hold your eyelids down. To include to the excess weight
reduction solutions, there is a new entrant in the bandwagon. You have to use
this drug, about thirty minutes, before your meals.

Achieving weight loss is one of the greatest health challenges.
Some find this product to be the miracle cure for weight loss.
This gives the person a feeling of fullness,
on the same note, it also prevents feelings of depression that are likely to trigger bouts of emotional.

Realtor Partnering Strategy 2 ' SHORT SALE LEADS '
The Second way to Partner with a Realtor to help them make double their commissions is handling Short Sales for both your 'buys' and your 'sales'.
Much depends on property type, location, and use of facility.
With a little effort, you can obtain materials to build this

a supposedly good friend of mine was undermining me, telling people that I shouldn't have the dogs, that I couldn't take care of

Gold extracted from the Earth has only changed forms and the vast majority
of it can be obtained to this day, thus we still have virtually all that we've ever had.
In any shared-living arrangement, the parties should take the time to draw up a list
of each expense that will be shared and how much everyone is
expected to pay. They don't know whether to buy or sell, invest or stay
in cash. The wheelchair accessible minivans can be bought in all budgets.

In real life more often than not those great investing
tips are scams.

I comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is a result of the
fire displayed in the post I browsed. And after this article Festive Gin-Based
Holiday Cocktails. I was actually excited enough
to leave a comment :-P I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
Is it simply me or does it look like like some of these remarks look as if they are left by brain dead individuals?
:-P And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
Would you list the complete urls of all your public

I think everything composed was actually very reasonable.
But, think about this, suppose you added a little content?

I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a title that grabbed a
person's attention? I mean Festive Gin-Based Holiday Cocktails is kinda vanilla.

You should peek at Yahoo's home page and note how they create post titles to grab
people interested. You might add a related video or a related
picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've got to
say. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.
