Valentines day is slowly creeping up and why not celebrate with some cocktails made from Bulldog’s tasty Gin…
Gin drinking is typically stereotyped for the older generation, with the myth that gin is not necessarily a drink to have as a cocktail and that it should generally be drunk as a G&T. We however think this is wrong and wanted to test that theory with some of Bulldog Gin’s recommended cocktails.
Available from a variety of retailers, Bulldog is a refreshing gin which is smooth and well balanced. It is very versatile, making it the perfect alcoholic tipple to be mixed with a variety of flavours for an exceptional cocktail.
Bulldog’s mission is to redefine the perception of gin drinking and they have achieved this by not only creating a great gin to have neat, but they have also concocted 8 classic cocktails and 16 collection cocktails.
We tried out a few of the recipes ourselves and whilst they were all delicious, these are the three which made the cut for Valentine’s day (trust us – you’re guaranteed to impress…)
