So…. as you might have guessed, this is all about GIN! SO let's find out more…
Gin is a distilled alcoholic drink that derives its predominant flavor from juniper berries. It originated as a medicinal liquor made by monks and alchemists across Europe, particularly in southern France, Flanders and the Netherlands, to provide aqua vita from distillates of grapes and grains. Gin emerged in England after the introduction of the jenever, a Dutch and Belgian liquor that was originally a medicine. Gin today is produced in different ways from a wide range of herbal ingredients, giving rise to a number of distinct styles and brands. After juniper, gin tends to be flavored with botanical/herbal, spice, floral or fruit flavors or often a combination.” Source: wiki
Rather interestingly, because of the botanical nature of how gin is distilled, gin cocktails work really well with herbs. Included in the collection below are drinks with thyme, basil, and rosemary – not to mention other fantastic flavors like cranberry, apple, cucumber, and ginger.
I've also included a brand new recipe below for a low carb version of a gimlet – a strong English cocktail that was invented in the 1920s. It is traditionally made with gin and lime cordial, but in my recipe I use fresh lime juice, and sugar free sweetening syrup instead of the cordial.
