Ah! It’s not long until the start of December and the countdown for the big day begins! In previous years a little £2.99 chocolate advent calendar would have done just fine to help us countdown the days, but not in 2017!
This year alcoholic advent calendars seem to be the ‘in’ thing, every time I go on social media a new one pops up on my feed, the most popular ones being wine, prosecco and gin.
As you guys know I’m a big fan of gin and I’m all for having a cheeky G&T every evening in the run-up to Christmas (tis the season to be merry and all that!) but, instead of just buying one I have decided to make my own.
One tiny little problem…. I don’t own 24 gins! But I have come up with a plan, In the spirit of Christmas, I have got together with some friends and we have shared our gin collections, I have given 50ml sized bottles of some of my favourites gins in return for some of theirs. I think it’s a great way to try a new gin and share some of your favourites with others. And all of us will get to have 24 different gins in the run-up to Christmas, Perfect!
As I was collecting all of my gin I made little labels for all of them and stamped numbers from 1-24 and put them in a box, ready for me to start drinking on 1st December.
So happy GinMas! I hope this post inspires you to create your own advent calendar, and share your favourites with friends and family. x
