How to Garnish Your Gin & Tonic

With no sign of the gin comeback letting up anytime soon, Ginuary really couldn’t come at a better time. Whether you see it as mother’s ruin or it’s your go-to tipple, its best to drink your gin & tonic right.

Sabcho Gavrailov, Food & Beverage Manager at Sopwell House, reveals how to garnish your gin to ensure you can have a bar worthy G&T at home.

Floral Gins – garnish with lavender or elderflower

Lavender and Elderflower are great garnishes to floral gins as they add a wonderful perfume and are a pretty addition to the glass. The floral notes of chamomile and rose petals in gins such as BLOOM and Eden Mill Love Gin are complemented by the flower garnish.

Citrus Gins – garnish with pink grapefruit & rosemary

The lemon and herbaceous flavours of citrus gins like Bombay Sapphire and Monkey 47 pair perfectly with pink grapefruit and rosemary. The garnish adds a fresh vibrancy and accentuates the flavour of the gin.

Spiced Gins – garnish with a cinnamon stick, peppercorns or chilli

The flavour of spiced gins such as Ophir and Pink Pepper Gin is emphasised by aromatic garnishes like a cinnamon stick, peppercorns and chilli. The additional spices emphasise the existing flavour of the botanicals.

Sloe Gins – garnish with a slice of lemon

Sloe gins, such as Sipsmith and Boodles, are renowned for their sweet complexity and fruity notes. Serve simply with a slice of lemon, which will bring out the distinctive berry flavour further and add an additional zing.

Sopwell House is a stunning 18th Century Georgian house located in the city of St. Albans deep within the Hertfordshire countryside. Located only 20 minutes from London St. Pancras, the hotel is the idyllic getaway just outside of the hustle and bustle of the capital.
