ELEPHANT GIN PARTY GUIDE

With dry-ish January finally over, we are more than ready for tippling, sipping and imbibing! What better way than in the company of friends.

We’ve put together a few recipes, food pairing inspiration and general gin serving tips for you and your Elephant Gin party! If you decide to take it a step further and collect donations on the night to support one of our partner foundations Big Life – you will proudly enter a Wildlife Warrior Club and receive a framed certificate!

Participating teams and bars around the world are already supporting our #WednesdaysforWildlife initiative with donating profits from cocktails on selected Wednesdays.

 

START THE NIGHT WITH A PERFECT G&T

With just two ingredients, one may be rushed to getting their first serve in hand. But striving for the “Perfect G&T” really requires closer attention to the gin to tonic ratio and a possible garnish element to bring out the best flavours of the gin. Use large glasses to accommodate lots of ice, mix it with a premium tonic – and don’t over dilute the gin with too much of it! Don’t forget the cherry (apple) on top…

Our suggested perfect G&T serves are:

50 ML ELEPHANT LONDON DRY + 150 ML TONIC + SLICE OF APPLE

50 ML ELEPHANT SLOE GIN + 150 ML TONIC + ORANGE TWIST

50 ML ELEPHANT STRENGTH GIN + 150 ML TONIC

Fore more info on party glasses, how and what to serve in what, read our glassware guide.

 

THE STARTER

Our favourite to start off the night is a beef carpaccio or fish ceviche marinated with baobab, fennel and buchu (email us if you’d like to receive a sample some of our botanicals).

To compliment we’d recommend a Gin Martini with 40ml Elephant Strength Gin and 20ml Dry Vermouth. Stir and strain into a martini glass, garnish with a lemon twist!

If you’re looking for something a little lighter, fix up a quick gin punch bowl. Barbadians have a near-national anthem that helps remember measures of a perfectly balanced punch.

One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, four of weak

For 2L ice tea punch, you’d mix 200ml of lemon juice, 400ml of sugar syrup (you can also spice it up with honey or jam), 600ml of gin and 800ml of an unsweetened iced tea infusion!

 

THE MAIN COURSE

Here we recommend a grilled octopus or risotto with mushrooms or artichokes, perfectly paired with a simple cocktail with refreshing ginger beer – like Aperitivo Semplice.

For this delicious and easy to make at home concoction, pour: 50 ml Elephant Sloe Gin, 10 ml Lime and 1 bar spoon of Fernet Branca into a tumbler glass with ice, top up with ginger beer and garnish with a mint sprig.

If you fancy trying a delicious Italian recipe such as a stuffed squid in zimino – we have just the recipe for that from our friend Claudio Rovai, chef at Exit. This recipe includes a cheeky ‘byproduct’ of a Red Snapper – a twist on Bloody Mary using tomato consommé prepared for the squid. Full recipes here!

 

AFTER DINNER TREATS

For the final dish, offer your guest a selection of cheeses paired together with Elephant Aged Gin. A lovely pecorino, soft goat’s cheese and a medium-bodied blue cheese is a start of a perfect selection.

For those with a sweeter tooth, prepare Elephant Sloe Gin ice cream! You’ll find the recipe here.

 

COFFEE BREAK

Impress your guests with a final touch – a boozy coffee digestif.

Espresso Toddy

45 ml Elephant Sloe Gin

10 ml Coffee syrup or Coffee liqueur

15 ml Lemon juice

60 ml Hot Ginger Black Tea infusion

Method: Infuse hot water with Black Tea, add the rest of ingredients. Stir.

Glass: Tumbler.
