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 four 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 this Bank Holiday Weekend.
To make yours, combine the Lemon Drizzle Gin and lemon juice in a chilled coupette. Then, place the scoop of ice cream in the middle and pour the prosecco around it. Garnish with lemon zest, and eat with a spoon, or drink.
2. STRAWBERRY & CREAM RAMOS
Combine all ingredients, excluding the soda water, along with two cubes of ice, in a cocktail shaker. Shake hard until all lumps are gone (4-5 minutes – it’s worth the wait!). In a chilled highball (without ice), fill the glass a third full with soda water and then slowly top up with your ginny ice cream mixture in the shaker. The consistency will be that of a milkshake. Garnish with a mint sprig, sip and enjoy!
To make yours, pour the Kahlúa into a chilled rocks glass with one large block of ice. In a cocktail shaker, shake the gin and ice cream until smooth (we don’t mind a few lumps). Use a spoon to pour the ginny ice cream mixture over the Kahlúa in a layer. Garnish with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon and an orange peel twist for a sensationally zesty ice cream cocktail.
