Gin cocktails for pancakes


It’s Shrove Tuesday and you’re wondering whether to create a gin cocktail to serve with your hot and sweet pancakes. We say absolutely! Take your pancakes up a level and read on as we’ve got you covered this Pancake Day!

We’re suggesting you use our Campfire Cask Aged Gin (winner England’s Best Matured Gin at the World Gin Awards 2024) in both the cocktails featured below as we think it’s delicious but for a sweeter taste try switching it for Campfire Old Tom Gin in the Bee’s Knees cocktail.

You can also switch out Campfire Cask Aged Gin for the fruity juniper notes in Box Moor Gin as it complements the citrus in the Orange Sour. Experiment with different gins (so long it’s from Puddingstone Distillery) to see how the flavour profile changes.
