3 Delicious Lower Alcohol Cocktails Using Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence

Posted on October 06, 2020

 

 All of the taste, less of the alcohol.

 

Cocktails can often be a little bit on the boozy side (little perhaps an understatement), and if you enjoy a midweek tipple or a weekend lunchtime drink, then you probably don't want to be mixing a medley of alcoholic beverages.

If you're into your cocktails but you're looking for a lower alcohol alternative, then don't fret - our Head of Mixology, Oliver Morris, has come up with three delicious lower alcohol serves using our new Cotswolds Dry Gin Essence for you to try at home. Each cocktail below contains just 0.23 units of alcohol, and although they're lower in alcohol, they're certainly not low in flavour. Enjoy!
