A super-simple way to take plain spirits and mixers out of the ordinary is to freeze individual garnishes into ice cubes. All it takes is just a little preparation beforehand. The perfect drink to serve them with is a gin-based cocktail, which really gives the ice cubes a chance to shine.
Take inspiration from the botanical makeup of the gin: go for classic lemon or lime slices with your Gordons or Tanqueray, rosemary with Gin Mare, cucumber for your Hendrick’s, apple slices for Caorunn, and cardamom pods with No.3 London Dry Gin.
If you still have room or just enjoying a lighter Boxing day treat there is nothing better than a cheeseboard. There are a lot of different flavours and textures on a cheese board making it difficult to match the complete experience instead of one cheese in particular.
With gentle tannin alongside sweetness, port has the best chance of coping with the diverse flavours, and it also doubles up as a digestif after a big meal. When it comes to matching wines and cheese specifically, there are some divine matches! Sauternes is wonderful paired with blue cheese, Sauvignon Blanc is ideal with goat’s cheese and white Burgandy (or a very mellow red) can be brilliant with soft cheeses.
