Navy Strength Citrus Spritz with 58 Gin Distillery


 
At Christmas, the cocktails ought to be flowing. If you're going to luxuriate yourself in a tipple or two, then you should make it delicious, refreshing, seasonal and lavish in every sense of the word! Today's cocktail collaboration is with the fabulous 58 Gin Distillery and I have used their artisan Navy Strength (yes, this is a tipple with a powerful punch!) to create my Citrus Spritz cocktail. Using fresh citrus fruits, mint, cranberry tonic as well as non-alcoholic ginger ale, this is a cocktail with a festive touch that your guests will be asking for refills of, as well as the secret (or not so secret if you like to share!) recipe! Read on for full mixology details.  



A Bit About 58 Gin
58 Gin is a distillery based in London and they are passionate about creating wonderful, well rounded gin for you to enjoy, mixed with your favourite garnishes, or served simply if that's more your style.  

They make specifically London Dry Gin, a real classic and an essential part of any drinks lover's liquor cabinet.


Artistry at Work
Their beautiful logo is a Prohibition-style tattoo. The stunning winged logo is to reflect the fact that 58 Gin was initially started up in the London region of Angel.
