Garden in My Glass

Hey lovely people. June 13 is World Gin Day, and so I’m dedicating today’s blog post to gin, the favourite liquid of many. Let’s celebrate!

The idea for this post germinated with an email that I came across a few days back about how this day got started and why is it celebrated. So here I am sharing it all with you, along with a few gin recipes.

Celebrated since 2009, World Gin Day is always the second Saturday in June, founded by Neil Houston and Emma Stokes, great gin connoisseurs, we can’t thank them enough!

Gin cocktails have become the talk of town today. Its citrusy, spicy blending notes are making cocktail experiences thrive and get-togethers more memorable. Whether a classic concoction or as a cocktail, this day is all about enjoying our favourite liquid.
