Salcombe Gin Finisterre

There is nothing better than getting a nice bottle of gin and making delicious drinks out of them.  What could be better than using some premium Salcombe Gin to make a splash this Christmas with a cocktail recipe cunningly called The Christmas GIN-gle.

This recipe was included in the latest mail out from Rise & Shine which is created by Bread and Butter Media.  So thanks to these guys for the inspiration!
