MxMO – Gin

November 7th, 2007

Mixology Monday - Pairings

It’s nearly Mixology Monday time again, and this month I am honoured to be the host. For those who don’t know, Mixology Monday is a monthly event held in the online cocktail world where we all make drinks and write posts around a certain theme.

This month the theme is gin. Not quite as inventive as some of the previous topics perhaps, but nonetheless a subject I’m sure we can have plenty of fun with. Gin has been my key “find” since learning more about cocktails, having gone from a spirit I wouldn’t touch to perhaps my favourite after whisky.

Gin bottles

It currently seems to be enjoying something of a resurgence after spending years languishing behind it’s more popular, but less intelligent, brother, vodka. Sadly I’m sure we’ll never reach the point where as many varieties of gin sit behind a bar as do vodka, but let’s see if we can’t find some cocktails that might at least help buck the trend.

Whether you go for something classic like a Martini, or something a little more modern, all are welcome to join the party. To participate all you need to do is write a post about gin, link back to this post, and email me just to be sure. If you don’t have a blog, why not post your cocktail at eGullet or simply in the comments here.

See you on Monday!

    Wow! You have exellent collection of a gin. But where is a Bombay? :)

    Plymouth is my big dream… In Ukraine I cannot find with great alcohol now.

  4. SeanMike SeanMike says:

    What’s that Plymouth in the background?

    My friend Marshall and I worked on our Mixology Monday experiments last night. We had a similar array of gin as yours, just with the addition of Bombay Sapphire.

    Though I didn’t actually end up cracking into the Hendricks or Plymouth, I think he did.

    I can’t wait to get our posts up! This is our first Mixology Monday.

    In background with red label is, i think so, Plymouth Sloe Gin…

    It is my big dream too :)

    Let me think – what is new about gin…

    oh I found this site just in time–I have much love for the gin…G&Ts are my staple–when I’m feeling lazy and need something familiar; but nothin’ beats the classic martini. I am so in love with Bootles gin–but do they carry it in NC? Noooooooo.
