Hot gin

Gin with tonic is a refreshing drink that has obsessed drinkers in recent years and is most often enjoyed on warmer days inhere. For winter times or colder days, there is a great alternative to the summer version, mulled gin. We all know mulled wine, but recently hot gin has also come to the fore. The preparation recipe is as follows:

Quantity for two people:

  • 400 mL of apple juice,

  • 2 teaspoons of honey (or according to your own taste),

  • 50 mL of gin,

  • cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, ginger (or of your choice).

Heat apple juice and honey in saucepan. Mix well. Cover the contents and set aside. Add gin and strain the content to the cup. Garnish the drink with star anise, a slice of orange or apple, a cinnamon stick and serve.

Gin & tonic

Today's gins are becoming bolder in flavors and aromas, which has fueled the obsession with them. Gin combined with a neutral tonic and spices/fruits is the perfect combination to refresh the palate of any drinker. The preparation recipe is as follows:

Amount per serving:

  • 50 mL gin,

  • 200 mL Fevertree tonic (or of your choice),

  • juniper berries, cinnamon stick, lemon slice (or of your choice).

Pour chilled gin into a glass and add 2-3 blue pea flowers. Wait about 5 minutes for the gin to turn blue. Add the spices to the glass and garnish with a lemon slice. Just before serving, add tonic and the blue color turns pink.

Cocktail with Džin #1

Another great recipe for a cocktail with Džin # 1. Our gin contains lavender, chamomile and lemongrass, among other things, and it was in this cocktail that we emphasized the taste of these ingredients even more. We soaked the blue pea flower in warm water for 5 minutes and froze it. We added blue ice cubes to the cocktail and while drinking it we can observe how the gin changes color from transparent to pink.

Preparation for one serving:

  • 40mL gin,

  • 150mL tonic,

  • 60mL of syrup (a pinch of lavender, chamomile and lemon grass soak in hot water for 5 minutes and strain; add 15g of sugar to this liquid and boil for 5 minutes).

A good handful of blue ice cubes and a slice of lime to counterbalance the sugar.

Gin & tonic Rosa

Cocktail with Načišen. This gin is composed of lemon peel, rosemary and rose. A fresh cocktail that further emphasizes the ingredients. The astringency of juniper is softened by the exceptional aroma of roses and the citrus freshness of lemons. Tasting ends with a slight spiciness of rosemary. The final touch is lyophilized raspberries, which provide an excellent crunchy texture.
 

Recipe:

  • a lot of ice, a sprig of rosemary, a slice of lemon,

  • 50mL Načišen,

  • 30mL of rose syrup and a pinch of exceptional edible roses, 

  • 200mL of tonic and

  • 2 freeze-dried raspberries.

Espresso martini cocktail

Do you love gin? What about espresso? Me both. Indašnje gin goes perfectly with coffee, as it contains spices that complement coffee. The preparation of the "Ginespresso" cocktail is simple and short. Add ice, espresso, gin and sugar syrup to the blender. Stir vigorously for about 30 seconds and then pour into a glass. Add a slice of orange peel and you can also scrape the chocolate over the top.

Recipe for one serving:

  • 50ml espresso,

  • 50ml Indašnje,

  • 40ml simple sugar syrup,

  • lots of ice,

  • a dried slice of orange peel.

What do coconuts, beer, coffee and gin have in common? You could say almost nothing... or even more than we think.

Espresso martini goes coconut:

The classic recipe of the eternal cocktail presented in a different light. Recipe:
• 50mL “coconut fat washed” Old Tom Indašnje,
• 50 mL espresso and
• 25 mL syrup from imperial stout beer (reduce from 330 mL to 100 mL and add two tablespoons of sugar).

Add all ingredients and ice to a shaker, mix and serve. We add @lifis.si strawberries to top it off.

The combination of coconut with the aromatics of Old Tom gin harmoniously connects with the coffee, while the syrup from the richly aromatic beer rounds off the tasting with the aroma of vanilla and dark notes that dominate the brew.

~ Fat washed: fat, this time coconut oil in a ratio of approx. 1:5 (oil:gin) is mixed with gin. Let it stand for 1 hour at room temperature and put it in the refrigerator overnight. Let's strain. This transfers the coconut aromas, which are soluble in alcohol, into the gin.
