As the years go by trends, and sometimes how we celebrate certain occasions change. The essence of many things stays the same but with a modern outlook applied. Valentine’s Day is no exception.
No longer is Valentine’s Day about celebrating “romantic love” as it was when first observed back in the third century. It’s about more than your significant other, 2010 saw the start of Galentine’s Day, a day about celebrating female friends. And, even more recently the rise of Palentine’s Day, a day for those who are single; it’s for spending with your friends and celebrating the love you have for each other.
Whoever you’re deciding to treat on the 14th of February, we’ve got a few ideas up our sleeves on how to celebrate with the gin to your tonic.
Caorunn Cocktail Book
Whether it’s Galentine’s, Palentine’s or Valentine’s the Caorunn Cocktail Collection is a compilation of over 100 gin-cocktails from bartenders around the globe, meaning you’ll find a cocktail suitable for your celebrations.
For an evening in you may want to savour a cocktail that’s been developed with “love, attention and the time it deserves” making the “Pink Evergreen” an appropriate choice to enjoy with a loved one. Discover the recipe here.
Or, “The Pink Slip”, this cocktail celebrates the harmonious balance between fruity flavours reminiscent of Scotland’s wild plants, both sweet and succulent. Perfect for raising a toast with friends and celebrating how sometimes, friends can bring balance to life and make things brighter when all may not be going your way. Reveal the cocktail recipe here.
You can shop the Caorunn Cocktail Collection book on our online shop here.
Of course no recipe from our cocktail book would be complete without Caorunn. Whether in a cocktail or in our Perfect Serve G&T, our gin is beautifully versatile which means it’s also suitable for any classic or contemporary cocktail.
Prefer a gin & tonic over a cocktail? Why not create a C&T hamper complete with Caorunn, premium fizzing tonic and red apples (we like Pink Lady) ready to cut into wedges…and voila the perfect C&T. And, if you’re in the area, you can also shop our branded Copa glasses at our Visitor Shop.
