November is whizzing by us, and before you know it, festivities will be upon us – which means those office parties are about to get planned. Now, it is not uncommon for the office to dish out drinks throughout the December month as a way of saying thank you for all the hard work, so Hunter’s Gin is taking a bold step forward in presenting you with the perfect tasting office party drinks and a variety of delicious gin-inspired cocktails for your co-workers.
Whether you are a longtime fan or new to the taste, here are some great drink choices to celebrate with your office pals.
Gin and Tonic
Of course, we must begin with the classic gin and tonic – the most popular way to enjoy Hunter’s stockport gin.
Comprised of two parts gin and one part tonic water, this simple yet delicious combination is the easy drink to pull out at party time – and generally accepted by all. By adding a tonic, you provide that hint of sweet and bitter flavour to go with the complex and refreshing gin element. Feel it needs a little something extra? Chuck in some fresh fruit, herbs or spices and let the good times roll.
Well, if we are going to bring up the classics, the cool and collected martini is always going to fit the occasion.
Combining two parts gin and one part dry vermouth in a shaker filled with ice, you have the start of a truly satisfying start to the festivities. Shake the ingredients vigorously before straining them into your martini glass, and – if you want a cocktail to kill for – squeeze in a few drops of orange or lemon juice to alight those tastebuds.
We love a good Gimlet, as it truly is an underappreciated classic gin cocktail to make with Hunters Gin.
To make this seasonal favourite, mix two parts gin with one part lime juice in your ice-filled shaker. It is a simple enough drink to make for occasions, shaking until chilled and strained into the glass and ready to go. We advise a dash of simple syrup to give it an added sweetness to the taste. You won’t be disappointed.
Why not put an Italian spin on your cocktails with this popular mixture of Hunter’s Gin, sweet vermouth and Campari?
To make this favourite, you simply combine equal parts gin, sweet vermouth and Campari into your ice-filled shaker, shake until chilled and strain into your glass. If you want some additional garnish, an orange peel gives it plenty of flavour.
… and these are just the starters! There are many ways to enjoy Hunter’s Gin over the party period. Spice up your office party drinks with a collection of Hunter’s manchester gin available in our online gin company store today.
