Recipes for gin cocktails for moments of pleasure like on the Mediterranean Photo: djd/

We usually stay at home in the summer. Then it's nice for us too. The sun is shining. We enjoy our garden and our terrace. We avoid the crowds in the holiday areas wherever possible. We then tend to go on trips to the lakes or mountains in our area. We prefer to travel and take longer tours in spring and autumn. Instead, we chill on our terrace under the summer awning and imagine we're in Italy or Slovenia. This works best with gin cocktails, whose recipes are reminiscent of the Mediterranean.

Enjoy the flavors of the Mediterranean at home in a cocktail with gin

A mixture of siesta and dolce vita, that's what makes you long for holiday destinations from Barcelona to Capri. With ingredients and fun to mix yourself, gin cocktails bring this attitude to life into your own four walls. Gin Mare, for example, conveys a large portion of the typical Mediterranean charm. Ingredients from the Mediterranean region also create new flavors in classic cocktails. Arbequina olives from Spain, basil from Italy, thyme from Turkey and rosemary from Greece give this gin its character. The alternative for creations like the Mediterranean is Gin Mare Capri with citrus notes and bergamot.
