What to make this weekend: Three festive drinks gin lovers will adore

You can't go wrong with a classic G+T, but why not amp things up a notch this Christmas and try one of these three gin-based cocktails? Quick, delicious and very easy to make, they're sure to go down a treat.

Mediterranean toddy

You’ve probably had mulled wine or a hot whiskey before, but this Mediterranean toddy is the perfect winter warmer. Made with Bombay Pressé Mediterranean and lightly sweetened with honey and subtle notes of clove, it’s Christmas in a glass.

Ingredients

  • 35ml Bombay Pressé
  • 20ml Honey
  • 100ml boiling water
  • Clove-studded lemon slice

Method

  1. Add 20ml of honey to a heat-proof glass, add 100ml of boiling water and 35ml of Bombay Pressé and stir.
  2. Garnish with a clove-studded lemon.

French 75

A classic cocktail for a reason, the French 75 is made with Bombay Sapphire gin, a touch of lemon juice and sugar… all topped with chilled prosecco. Tasty and refreshing. Could this be your new New Year’s Eve drink of choice?

Tom Collins

If you haven’t had a Tom Collins before, it’s a delicious, crisp and citrusy sipper. This particular version is made with Bombay Sapphire Pressé, lemon and sugar, topped off with soda water and served in a Collins glass over cubed ice.
