Tanqueray No.10 French 75 Cocktail

By In Cocktails
Christmas… that unique time of the year when its acceptable to have a drink before 10am. If you ignore New Years which is the only other time. (Its midday for Birthdays in case you were wondering). It simply has to be something bubbly of course. Oh and gin.

For Christmas 2017 Tanqueray No.10 have released a stonkingly attractive caged bottle. The bespoke metal frame has “been expertly crafted to highlight Tanqueray No. 10’s striking geometric design”.

With 200 years of distilling passion, the celebrated gin prides itself on authenticity, quality and impeccable flavours of whole fresh citrus fruit. Tanqueray No. TEN is best enjoyed with a slice of pink grapefruit which showcases the spirit’s citrus elements. Highlighting it’s what you put in that really counts, it’s the perfect pairing to sip at a seasonal soiree. From a sophisticated Martini to a classic Tanqueray No. TEN & Tonic, Tanqueray No. TEN also provides a superb base for festive cocktails, great for toasting the party season.

To combine the love of gin with the festive requirement of bubbles only a French 75 cocktail will suffice. You know… until lunch time…
