Ice and a Slice hosted a surprise 40th Birthday Gin and Tonic Masterclass for Justin and 9 of his family and friends on Saturday evening. We had 4 gins and 5 mixers, including a ginger ale for the party to taste. Justin's wife Jo, had made some lovely dishes to accompany the gins which included Lemongrass Chicken Kebabs to go with Nelson's gin and some Strawberry Cream Cups to accompany the Love gin. The group got stuck in tasting each of the gins with each of the tonics and adding slices, garnishes and botanicals to mix up the flavours and aromas in each of the gins. Although a hard decision, it seemed that the Nelson's gin with ginger ale and a kaffir lime leave was the favourite amongst most of the group.
A 'Thank you' from Jo:
'Thank you so much for the wonderful gin tasting evening last night. We all had a fabulous time and have learnt so much. You were so generous with your time and the quantity of gin, tonics and garnishes. It was also so thoughtful to present Justin with such a lovely gift (which I will also enjoy). I would highly recommend you to anyone.'
