Ealing Gin Toasts Summer and Friendship With A New Celebratory Martini. Exercise your inner James Bond with a classic Martini that may both stir and shake you.
To welcome a summer where friendship and camaraderie will be celebrated with more gusto than ever, Ealing Gin has created a new Martini.
It is part inspired by the distillers’ own family celebrations (Ã¢â‚¬Å“which always kick off with a Kir RoyaleÃ¢â‚¬Â) and by the fabulous summer parties of the Jazz Age where the Gin Ricky (gin, limes and soda water) took centre stage.
The recipe mixes crÃƒÂ¨me de cassis and lime juice, which meld with the warm floral and fresh citrus notes of the gin to create a seriously good and very moreish Martini.
The creators have named it the Kir Lime Martini: Ã¢â‚¬Å“The name reminds us of Miami and the Keys which, of course, we love for the Art Deco architecture (as you can tell from our bottle) and the key limes!Ã¢â‚¬Â
We’re told the crÃƒÂ¨me de cassis delivers a rich burst of fruits along with creamy, rich, sweetness, while the lime brings just a small flash of freshness Ã¢â‚¬â€œ making them perfect partners to the well-balanced flavours of the Ealing Gin.
Why not mix a few for friends and family to celebrate National Martini Day on the 19th June?
