Follow the guide to these five taste sensations, to uncover the simple yet tasty pre-dinner combos that are perfect for sharing with friends.
Gin & Tonic X Sea Salt & Peppercorn Crisps
The fresh lime zest and juicy citrus of notes of a classic gin pairs perfectly with black peppercorn which enhances the gin’s signature juniper notes, while the sharp taste of tonic charmingly battles the tang of sea salt. It’s the perfect after work snack and cocktail combo for when friends turn up for dinner unplanned.
Dry martini cocktail X Lime & Coriander Poppadoms
What better way to soften a dry martini cocktail than with light lime and coriander poppadoms? The hint of zesty lemon rind in the martini cocktail pairs perfectly with the twist of citrus in the snack, while the hint of cumin in the snack matches well with the flavour profile of the martini cocktail. The ultimate in snack sophistication for these more fancy dinner plans.
Bramble X Thai Sweet Chilli Crisps
Sloe Gin partners with London Dry Gin to create the Bramble - a fruity and aromatic cocktail that your sweet tooth will love. The red berry flavours mingle brilliantly with the aromatic Thai herbs, while the heat of the chilli cuts through the sweetness of the cocktail. A match made in heaven for adventurous dinner guests.
Pink Spritz X Salted Olive Crisps
Live ‘la vie en rose’ with Gordon’s Premium Pink Spritz and bitter olive crisps. The rich savoury tang of salt cuts through the berry sweetness of the pink gin perfectly - cheers to that perfect pre-BBQ combo!
Elderflower Cooler X Vegetable crisps
Let yourself be carried to sunny afternoons in the garden with a gin-based Elderflower Cooler in one hand and veggie crisps in the other.
