We was lucky enough to be sent a bottle of Beefeater Gin to try out and i have to say i love this gin and that is coming from a person that is not normally to keen on it.

I tried something a little bit more simple with mine,


To be honest i can not tell you how much Gin was in it lol i think around a shot glass worth,
I then added a mix of Guava,mango,orange juice not from concentrate with the same amount of energy drink and yum yum it tasted really good well a bit too good because i had like 4 glasses whoops lol.

 Oh now i did not get pictures of this because until afterwards i actually had no idea,So hubby decided he was going to use the last 2 packets of lemon jelly in the cupboard i just left him to it thought nothing of it (bad idea lol).When i went to the fridge a while later and there was 2 containers of jelly setting i asked him well why would you put it in 2 containers and not one,He said 1 is for the kids and 1 is for us.I thought that to be really strange like since when do we make it separately but ok whatever.... 

Once it was set i was handed my bowl of jelly i was looking at it thinking what had he done to it and he is standing laughing at me,it tasted a bit different and alot better than normal i really enjoyed it i wanted more but he had finished the rest, once i had finished hubby decided to share his secret.

The reason the kids had different jelly is because ours is made with GIN lol.

So moral of the story never leave gin and jelly around hubby but i have to say it was really good and a kinda good idea Adult Jelly i will be making this again but trying different flavours will let you know how i get on :-).


Here is a few tips for you




Tim Stones, global brand ambassador for Beefeater Gin, offers his TOP TIPS for making cocktails at home:

o   Use plenty of ice. It will chill the drink quicker and will prevent too much dilution.
o   Chill your glassware in the fridge/freezer if possible, or chill with ice.
o   Chill any mixers.
o   Garnish your drinks. It makes them look more appealing.
o   Measure drinks accurately.
o   Make your own sugar syrup: dissolve 500g white caster sugar in 250ml water. It will keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge.
o   It's not necessary to buy lots of specialist equipment. For example, large jars can be used as shakers, chopsticks are good for stirring and egg cups for measures.
