Give your garden get together a kick start with these three new refreshing gin cocktails

With summer 2021 filled with staycations, garden gatherings and intimate family and friend reunions, it’s the perfect excuse to enjoy the award-winning Dingle Gin, as part of the time-honoured gin and tonic classic, or shaken up as part of a refreshing summery cocktail.

Dingle Gin is a classic Irish gin that grows in stature year on year, from one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland situated on the Wild Atlantic Way in Dingle, Co. Kerry. Made with water from the distillery’s own well and infused with local botanicals such as rowan berries from the mountain ash trees, fuschia, bog myrtle, heather and hawthorn, it’s a true taste of the Kerry landscape and the ideal ingredient for any summer drink infusion.

Dingle Gin is delighted to share three summer cocktail recipes aimed at inspiring the hosts of those intimate family gatherings and summer BBQ get togethers this summer. From the garden garnish on the Kerry Lily to the citrus tang of the lemon juice in Ferriter’s Cove, there is something for every gin fanatic. And if the gin enthusiast in the group isn’t convinced to try a cocktail, you can never go wrong with the signature serve - Dingle Original Gin, served with large cubes of ice, a wedge of fresh orange and a sprinkling of juniper berries.
