Call A Truce on St. Patty’s Day!

The English and Irish have at least one thing in common… they both love to drink! Make like shiny, happy people and toast the Emerald Isle with a classic-style English gin. (The recipes are even in metrics!)

Plymouth Express
50 ml Plymouth Gin
25 ml Lime Cordial
25 ml Sparking Water

Pour in Plymouth Gin and Lime Cordial into a rocks glass. Top with Sparkling Water. Stir and add cucumber garnish.


50 ml Plymouth Gin
35 ml Lemon Juice
15 ml Maraschino Liqueur
1 dash Syrup de Gomme

Pour Plymouth Gin, lemon juice (freshly squeezed), maraschino liqueur and syrup de gomme into an ice-filled mixing glass. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Add lemon zest garnish.
