Gin and Cheesies

Cheesies make the perfect drinks pairing, particularly with a thirst quenching G&T.

Here's how we like to serve a delicious limey G&T:

Ingredients

  • 50ml Gin (your favourite one, or why not try the one in your Craft Gin Box)
  • Handful of ice 
  • 2 limes , grated zest and juice
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 5 circular slices of lime for decoration
  • Cheesies (to eat whilst you make)

 

Method

  • Firstly, start by making your homemade lime cordial.
  • Zest your limes, and put the lime zest into a saucepan. Squeeze all the juice from your limes into a jug.
  • Top your lime just up with a little water (about 100ml)
  • Pour this mixture, and the caster sugar into your pan with the zest.
  • Gently heat, and stir occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved (don’t let it boil)
  • Strain the mixture into a jug and leave to cool. 
  • Then, get your gin glasses.
  • Pour 50ml of the lime cordial (recipe above) into a glass (not your serving glass) add a few ice cubes and your gin.

  • Stir until the outside of the glass feels very cold.
  • Decorate your gin glass with the lime slices, add the mixture.
