My Gin Renaissance

In recent months I’ve found myself having a bit of a gin renaissance. For years I was the biggest fan of gin, but then it hit a point where whenever I had an alcoholic drink it was always gin. And as everything does when you have it all the time, gin became a bit boring to me. So for a while I switched over to darker spirits like whiskey and rum, with gin becoming more of a ‘has-every-now-and-then’ drink for me. That was until, however, I decided to give it another go; opting for a fruity rhubarb gin to ease myself back in. One sip and I’d fallen in love with gin all over again. Now that I’m firmly aboard the gin train again, it’s about time that I start experimenting with the spirit in some cocktails. Which brings me to the gin fizz.

My favourite thing about this cocktail is how lovely and light it is, and that’s down to the gin that I’ve used in it. There are so many different gins out there at the moment and it really does make a huge difference what gin you choose to use in your drinks. For this cocktail I’ve gone for one of Professors Club’s new limited edition gins; the Secret Garden Gin*. Light, smooth and super summery, the Secret Garden Gin* is the latest release from Afterthought Spirits Co. ‘Twisted’ with lavender, mint and hibiscus it’s a super refreshing gin perfect for enjoying this Summer. They recommend pairing it with fresh orange juice and a lime wedge but I have to say it goes perfectly with a classic Fever Tree Tonic as well. And of course I love it in this gin fizz!

The new limited edition range consists of three flavours, a Pink Gin, a Summer Dry Gin (that’s lovely and lemony) and the Secret Garden Gin*, all of which are 42% ABV. As if the gins themselves aren’t delicious enough, each of the bottles are designed by Wade ceramics in a unique ‘twisted’ shape that I think anyone would be happy to have in their drinks cupboard. I may or may not have put my bottles on full display (they’re just so pretty!).

  1. Oooh I haven’t tried a gin fizz before but looks like a good one since I have lots of gins in. Also so cool that you made your own gin I’d love to try that 🙂

    1. It’s a super easy cocktail to make! Making my own gin was such a cool experience, I’d love to do it again 🙂

  2. I really thought your intro was going to say that you’d found a new hobby of drinking and I was fully prepared to praise you for living your best life 😂. This is exactly the kind of drink I order when I’m not sure what I want, I love anything with lemon/ citrus flavours when it comes to cocktails x

    1. Hahaha definitely not a new hobby of mine but that’d be very much on brand :’) I know exactly what you mean, it’s become my go-to for when I don’t know what to make for myself x

  3. This looks like a divine mix, and I would definitely be saving that bottle! The name and the brand are both delightful and, though I have never had a gin fizz before, it is something I will be trying! I actually have some gin in my freezer. 🙂

  4. It is so cool that you got to do collabs with alcohol companies hehe. You can never go wrong with gin. I like that this cocktail is pretty much straight forward. Mmmm I know it would be great with some mint too!! Thanks for sharing this recipe. Glad you liked it overall.

  5. Ooo this sounds so refreshing. I do like the tang of a gin fizz. I also love the sound of that gin, I may just have to sample a bottle or two!
    By the way, loving the cocktail making sessions you are having. Nothing wrong with a good cocktail!
