Icy Scottish Strawberry & Lime Spritzer with Lost Loch Spirits

Hands up if Christmas is your favourite time of the year?! I absolutely adore Christmas and all of the wonderful things which go with it. The get togethers, fabulous food and the good stuff that is on TV, it's great! Cocktails have also got to be a highlight as they can become a bit more 'spruced up' (please forgive that haha!). Today's cocktail feature is written in collaboration with Lost Loch Spirits and it's a fruity, zesty wonder that will be a popular drink if you serve it up at your festive family gatherings this season! I have used fresh lime, refreshing strawberries and of course a generous portion of Lost Loch's gin, so if drink-spo was what you were looking for, you're in the perfect place!
A Bit About Lost Loch
Lost Loch is a wonderful Scottish distillery. Their artisan produce is carefully crafted and has a wonderfully balanced blend of botanicals in it.

You can attend Lost Loch's Spirit School if you're keen to learn all that there is to know about gin and the distilling process. Check out more details about it here.

I was kindly sent a bottle of their Scottish eeNoo gin which is a small batch gin. This gin has the flavour profile of traditional gin, yet there's something unique and different about it. That would be the fact that they have got the flavours of the Scottish highlands beautifully encorporated within it. It is distilled with Royal Deeside Honey as well as Highland heather flowers, brambleberries, raspberries and rosehips as well as Scottish juniper. The flavour profile doesn't stop there though, and you can also taste distinct notes of orange and lemon peel, angelica root as well as liquorice! Delicious.

I have mixed a strawberry and lime cocktail as the berry flavour and zesty note compliment those which already can be found within the gin. This is what I used and how to mix it yourself.

You will need
2 strawberries
sugar for edge of glass
1  shot of Lost Loch's eeNoo gin - shop online here
slices of lime
Elderflower tonic
Ice (optional)

1. Add sugar to your glass' edge and then add a few ice cubes to your glass.

2. Follow this with any fruits you'll be using.

3. Add a small amount of Elderflower tonic water to beautifully blend the fruits and gin together harmoniously. 

4. Gently swirl and serve immediately.

What do you think of this cocktail as a serve. I think it's a great after dinner option for Christmas, as it is light and irresistibly refreshing, just what everyone will love as they settle down to watch a festive movie. Shop the Lost Loch range online here. Hope you have the best Christmas and have a fabulously festive time! Festive love, Bilgi   x
