An Unusual Beverage to Celebrate St Andrews Day

The good people of Scotland gather every year on 30th November to celebrate St Andrew’s Day. In celebration of this day, Hendrick’s Gin has concocted Andrew’s sloe juniper, a specially crafted cocktail ideal for paying homage to Scotland’s patron saint and all things Scottish. In parts of Europe , superstitious belief exists that the night before St. Andrew’s Day is specially suitable for magic that reveals a young woman’s future husband or that binds a future husband to her, certainly a reason for a Andrew’s sloe juniper to be made.

 

It is widely known that St Andrew had a strong sense of curiosity. In homage to him, Hendrick’s inquisitive Andrew’s Sloe Juniper cocktail, is an unusual blend of Sloe gin combined with juniper infused Buckfast Tonic. The use of Regan’s Orange Bitters, further highlights one of the eleven botanicals found in Hendrick’s Gin – the bittersweet aroma of Juniper berries.

  1. All too often people buy exercise equipment with all the correct intentions, however these
    people end up not always utilizing it. If you check out a gym or health club it’ll most likely have a segment that contains lots of
    cross trainers because they’re very popular however the most recent
    trend is to purchase one for yourself and use it
    in the home. Give yourself some grace and learn from
    each day’s experience. I walk in different neighborhoods to see different
    sights and I’ve found myself wanting more. If you’ve forgotten,
    you can do this by clicking “Modify,” then “Transform,”
    and then finally “Flip Horizontally.
