Day 166 – Duck or Grouse…

I love great food, and tonight’s dinner at The Hinds Head was no exception. A small family run pub/restaurant where everything is cooked to order – no pre-prepared catering here! And a bonus – there’s been a Gin Festival on in the village, and the pub has a better than usual range available, with special prices for doubles. What’s not to like!

Day 159 – World Gin Day…

Today is apparently World Gin Day, so a perfect reason to drink my favourite gin – Audemus Pink Pepper Gin. As if I really needed an excuse…

Day 94 – Message In A Bottle…

Yesterday’s lunchtime visitors brought me a belated birthday present. Fair to say that most of my birthday gifts this year involved gin, and this was no exception – a monthly ‘subscription’ of different gins to try! I’m looking forward to future deliveries…

Day 89 – Don’t Drink It…

… all at once! Yesterday was my birthday, and as well as some other lovely gifts, I had these three bottles of gin! Pink Pepper is definitely my favorite, but who doesn’t love Monkey 47? Conker Gin is from Dorset where we spent the last few days, and this one is Navy Strength so 57% proof – wow, that’s strong!

Day 33 – Don’t Be Fooled…

… by the sunshine. It’s a lot colder here than it looks – barely above freezing today. In the summer we’ll have the doors open and be sitting outside our little ‘gin palace’ at the top of the garden, enjoying the views and a G&T, but for now it’s all closed up against the elements.

Day 18 – It’s Friday Night, so…

… it must be Cocktail Night! Whereas our early evening drink at home is usually a gin & tonic, Fridays are special, and that means cocktails! So what’s it to be tonight I wonder? – a champagne or prosecco cocktail, or maybe something exotic like a Porn Star Martini, a Whisky Sour or Long Island Iced Tea. Well, voting is over (I don’t have a vote, I just get to make the cocktails….) and it’s going to be a Gin Fizz tonight – gin, cherry brandy, lime juice and ginger beer, shaken not stirred of course. What’s not to like…
