This cocktail may make you blush

I’m going to get straight to the point with this post. I have made friends with one of the coolest products EVER.

Blush Gin Rhubarb Gin The Food Nest NZ

Let me introduce you to my new fave pal – Blush Gin. Blush Gin is a triple distilled, hand crafted and batch infused gin, made by two VERY clever cookies. What makes Blush just that little bit more special? It’s infused with Rhubarb. And let me tell you right now, it is mouth watering. I’ve had it on its own (on ice) mixed with soda and then… in this little mix I’ve created below.

Now I am not going to lie, I am not a cocktail connoisseur. I’ll order one, I’ll enjoy one, but I’ve never actually made one!

So this my friends, is my wee take on a Gin Fizz, using Blush Gin. I’ve decided to make it light and refreshing, almost something to remind you of summer. You’ll see I’ve used a fruit in this cocktail, that is unique as the gin itself. Want to know exactly what a Calamansi is? Click here.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Note – this makes enough for two in a small cocktail glass.

  • 60 to 80mls of Blush Gin
  • 5 mint leaves
  • Fresh squeezed calamansi to taste (don’t have calamansi? Lime or orange will work well too)
  • 1/4 tsp of freshly grated ginger
  • Ice
  • Soda Water

Fill up your favourite glass with ice. In a shaker or a jar, shake all of the above ingredients together, other than the ice, for about 30 seconds. From there, pour over the top of the ice, and then top with soda water. Enjoy!


Thank you to Blush Gin for being kind enough to send me this tasty treat. This post is not sponsored, but as you know with products I adore, I love to scream about them from the roof tops.
