Let Mother’s Day celebrations be-GIN!
Celebrate Mother’s Day and the nation's love for Gin by offering a variety of dishes paired with a selection of different Gins that are available to buy at Thomas Ridley.
The bite & refreshing cut in a London Dry style Gin and Tonic cuts through the fattiness and complements delicate flavours. The complex flavours of a good Dry Gin with their hints of Juniper and other Botanicals when mixed with Tonic Water and it’s refreshing, zingy flavours act in the same manner as squeezing lemon on fish & chips or Seafood.
Bullards London Dry Gin is a multi-award winning handcrafted gin and is made in small batches using a unique copper still.
A premium spirit behind most bars is Bombay Sapphire Gin. Serve it ice cold for a quintessentially English classic.
The style of food these pair well with are:
- Smoked Salmon with Lemon Juice
- Cucumber Sandwiches. The ideal gin to be paired with an afternoon tea.
- Prawns with a light sweet chilli sauce. Ideal in a sharer platter or as part of a mezze selection. Perfect pairing when shared with the whole family on Mother's Day.
- Fish & Chips
- Goats Cheese starters, with chutney and breads.
For a fruitier fun feel, pink and flavoured gins are growing at an astounding rate and are a definite must have on your drinks menu for 2020. The fruit (or other) flavours when added to Gin via blending or distillation give added richness to the finished product. They convey very pure flavours and act the same as adding your favourite fruits to any dessert.
Gordon's Premium Pink Distilled Gin balances the refreshing taste of Gordon's with the sweetness of raspberries, strawberries and redcurrant. It is a sweeter way to enjoy a gin and tonic, a popular choice by all.
Brand New to Thomas Ridley is Chase Rhubarb and Bramley Apple Gin. The tangy and tart flavour is blended perfectly with the fruit to make a delicious gin based cocktail.
A great one for spring menus is this versatile Bullards Strawberry and black pepper Gin. Not only used in a G&T, this gin makes an amazing topper in a glass of prosecco. Just what is needed for Mother’s Day.
Fruit based desserts pair well with these gins such as:
- Mademoiselle Frozen Fruit Gateaux
- Aulds Gluten Free, Vegan Mango and coconut dessert
- Country Range Chocolate and Cherry Mousse Cake
