Sew White Pomegranate elderflower and satsuma christmas cocktail 1

The countdown to Christmas has really began at my house and I’ve been experimenting with the delicious Surrey made gin by Silent Pool.

The Silent Pool Gin is strong and full-bodied and fresh but has a floral taste. It uses 24 unique floral flavours including lavender and chamomile which is well balanced with a subtle lemon/citrus and honey taste. I really love this gin after try it and I can’t wait to use it more in the future. It makes the drinks smooth and although strong it blends with other flavours incredibly well.

I use a shot glass to make this drink as I don’t have a proper cocktail making jigger. It’s about 50ml per drink but make it to taste.

    Sounds very festive! I don’t drink gin very often but I enjoy a glass when I do. This sounds a great alternative to traditional tonic.

    I love gin. Gin made from Surrey (just like me) sounds absolutely perfect. Must seek some out. This looks like the perfect festive drink!

      You must try it out! It has a unique flavour you don’t see in other gins. The citrus flavour is so different but works so well with fruity drinks.
