Valentines Day is just around the corner, making men jump into their panic stations, hoping to up their game on last years day of Netflix and takeaway. Well if you have noticed that your partner orders a Gin and Tonic when you two venture to the bar, then you can pretty much sure you have a gin lover in your life. Here are some gin related ideas that will make the day extra special.
Dinner and Cocktails
Splash out on a romantic dinner in a restaurant with a great reputation for cocktails, maybe even pick the cocktail, with some romantic garnish like raspberries and strawberies! A quick google for cocktail bars in your area will help, but if you need some help, I recommend Koh Restaurant & Cocktail Bar on Jervis Street Dublin, Soho Bar & Restaurant 77 Grand Parade Cork, Harveys Point Restaurant Lough Eske, Donegal, The Stockhouse Restaurant, Finnegans Way, Trim, Co. Meath, The Ross Bar and Restaurant, Kilarney Kerry.
Make your own romantic gin!
Making gin at home is as easy as pie! you dont need the fancy equipement like Stills and wait ages for it to be ready! Add your own favourite flavours and botanicals, you could even head out to the countryside and pick your own herbs and spices from nature! Head over the The Craft Gin Club for full instructions here.
