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.
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!
