Gin and ice-cream; an unsuspected match made in Heaven. The perfect treat to be enjoyed on a warm summer’s evening, or after dinner as dessert.
Crafted in collaboration with fellow B Corp and creator of award-winning ice-cream, Jude’s, our Head of Ginnovation, Ciarán, created three exclusive cocktails to sip this summer. Plus, enter our competition at the bottom of the page for the chance to win everything you need to craft some ice-creamy cocktails at home.
To make yours, combine all ingredients except the ice cream in an ice-filled shaker and shake until combined. Strain into a deep coupette glass, then carefully place the scoop of ice-cream in the middle. Garnish with a marshmallow, lemon twist, or garnish of your choosing, then sip and enjoy.
2. SALTED CARAMEL AFFOGATO FIZZ
Combine the gin, cold brew and ice-cream in a shaker (without ice). Shake until combined, then top up with ginger ale and stir to combine. Garnish with an orange wedge and a coffee bean for an affogato-inspired ginny sip.
To craft yours at home, place the ice cream scoop in an empty tumbler or highball glass. Pour the gin over the ice cream. Top (very slowly) with chilled tonic water. Top with your choice of garnish; we’ve opted for a wafer, but a lemon peel twist works too. Sip and enjoy this twist on the classic ice cream float.
