Every Friday from October 30 to November 20, our IMAGE Cocktail Evenings in Partnership with Malfy Gin will take place on our website and Instagram page. We are asking guests to join us along with hosts TV presenter Darren Kennedy, writer Nadia El Ferdaoussi and influencer Cliona O'Connor to learn how to make inventive, delicious gin cocktails.
Unlike most, this bank holiday was a stark reminder of current lockdown restrictions. With five kilometre limits in place, many of us have resigned to scenic walks and staying in most nights.
But there are so many things we can do at home to help distract ourselves for the next few weeks and focus on the good to come.
To help guide you through, we have created a special, weekly series with well-known friends of IMAGE - IMAGE Cocktail Evenings in Partnership with Malfy Gin, launching Friday!
Each week, we will release a new gin cocktail recipe on Instagram and image.ie along with a how-to video, featuring Irish stars like TV personality and style guru Darren Kennedy, travel writer Nadia El Ferdaoussi and social media influencer Cliona O’Connor.
Here’s the weekly line-up:
October 30 - Darren Kennedy is making a Malfy Con Arancia G&T.
November 6 - Nadia El Ferdaoussi is making an Amalfi Sunset Spritz with Malfy Gin Rosa.
November 13 - Cliona O’Connor is making a Ciao Malfy Spritz with Malfy Con Limone.
November 20 - Darren Kennedy is making a Malfy Con Arancia Twisted Bellini.
Viewers will learn how to make tasty and unique gin drinks like an Amalfi Sunset Spritz with pink gin and a bubbly Twisted Bellini.
Tune in the first Friday on October 30 and watch Darren make the perfect G&T, with a secret ingredient!
