Ginuary with Fentimans and Rock Rose Gin | Gin Diaries

January 16, 2018

As I explained on insta the other day, I’m not really one for Dry January. But a concept I can really get on board with is Ginuary.

Fear not Dry January-ers, I do have something to share with you, please come back soon to check it out! But until then, let’s get back to Gin. From reading around the internet, Ginuary is all centred on gin (well… duh!) But for someone who is a gin fiend it’s easy for me to say that. Others may only be getting started out on their Gin Journey!

Ginuary with Fentimans - Fentimans Botanical Tonic and Sheffield Dry Gin

To help you out this Ginuary, I have teamed up with Fentimans to showcase some drinks. The first is a gin and tonic. Boring you might think, but the Fentimans Botanical Tonic with Lime Flower is what makes this g&t more interesting. I teamed the tonic with Sheffield Dry Gin. This is quite savoury gin, so mixing with a sweeter tonic offered balance. A slice of lime and plenty of ice made this a lovely g&t.

Next up is a combination I really enjoyed. I have really been converted to the Fentimans Rose Lemonade recently. Not only is it a great soft drink, it’s a great mixer too. I teamed this with Rock Rose Spring Edition. This is a drink that can definitely bring some cheer to these grey winter days. A slice of lime and plenty of ice works well here too.

This Ginuary I shall be attempting to tick new gins off my list and try combinations I’ve not tried before. Keep your eyes on my insta, I’ve been sharing my Ginventures on there.

You can also check out all my other gin based posts in my Gin Diaries for your own Ginuary inspiration. If there’s anything you’d like me to write about or showcase gin wise in the future, do let me know in the comments!

    I love both Rock Rose and Fentimans mixers! Have you ever tried Fever Tree’s aromatic tonic? It’s mixed with Angustura and it tastes delicious. A nice change from the usual!

      Yes I have and I love it! It goes really well with the Manchester Parma Violets gin or a a Navy Strength gin 🙂

    I had been a hater of Gins for any years having sampled my mum’s many moons ago. That was until I went to a Gin competition and I’m now a huge lover. I drink pink gin and love it but there are so many different ranges on the market now to suit varying taste buds 🙂

      There’s so many different ones – it’s the versatility that I love about gin!

    Oh Ginuary sounds SO much better than Dry January! I love Fentimans traditional lemonade the best x

    • Reply MissPond January 16, 2018 at 1:12 pm

      It’s definitely better 😉 The Lemonade goes well with gin too!
