Aromatic Hot Gin. A Warm Cocktail to Keep You Outdoors for Longer

Aromatic Hot Gin will warm you up on those chilly summer evenings when the sun set is too good to miss allowing you stay outside a little while longer.

When the weather is all about the sunshine and the days are gloriously hot, a Gin and Tonic with lots of ice is perfect.  It shouts summer and a nod to the end of a long day.  However once the sun starts to dip taking with it the day’s warmth then a hot G&T fits beautifully. 

Although I didn’t use tonic in my Aromatic Hot Gin recipe, therefore not technically a Hot Gin and Tonic, I did use water making it more of a Toddy.  The use of lemon juice and cinnamon gives an aromatic flavour that will allow you to forgive me.

With hands cupped around enamel mugs, blankets on knees and extra layers, chilly summer evenings can stand proud among sun shiny summer days.  Whether you are relaxing in the garden or camping out with friends over the long stretch of summer holidays ahead or perhaps about to head back into a festival after a well-deserved base camp snooze, this recipe needs no chilled ingredients therefore perfect cocktail for any of the above activities.

Of course, you can drink these on their own but should you want to serve food then a platter of fresh salmon cooked over a layer of dill, buttered new potatoes and dotted about with soured cream then I couldn’t think of a better pairing.

    I love gin, I’ve never considered drinking it hot though. I might have to give it a try!

    This sounds like a lovely beach warmer – I am a big fan of gin but have never thought to have it warm!

    • Reply Elinor Hill aka Beach Hut Cook 26th July 2017 at 2:10 pm

      Oh it works so well and one is just not enough but two each made us giggle like teenagers! Elinor x

    Ooh I love the idea of a nice warm alcoholic beverage to drink by the fire pit on a cool summer evening! I’ll have to try this!

      We’ve even had them in our back garden round our incinerator! We did feel like we’d taken gin drinking to another level! Elinor x

    Amazing! Could do with one of them now. I managed to catch a cold in this cold London summer. That hot gin is what I need 🙂

    I would never think to make it hot! Sounds perfect for those chilly days!

    • Reply Elinor Hill aka Beach Hut Cook 26th July 2017 at 2:13 pm

      Yes Katy! Works a treat at the hut when everyone else is packing up to go home. Gives you an hour or two longer to enjoy the day! Elinor x

    This sounds like the perfect drink for those summer evenings when it starts to get a bit chilly outside.

    • Reply Elinor Hill aka Beach Hut Cook 26th July 2017 at 2:14 pm

      Emma, you’ve nailed it. Chilly outside = hot gin cocktails. Like your thinking! Elinor x

  • Reply Cath - BattleMum 26th July 2017 at 9:48 am

    This is a nice idea for gin lovers. I’ll share this as a few friends and family are partial to a gin-based drink from tiemt o time!

      Cath, I think your friends and family sound fab. Anyone who likes Gin is worth knowing in my eyes. Elinor x

  • Reply Michelle Frank | Flipped-Out Food 26th July 2017 at 3:17 pm

    Yes, yes, YES!! The hubster and I just broke in our new 3-season porch: we spend as much time out here as possible, but it does get a wee bit chilly in the evenings. You’ve just given us the perfect libation for enjoying our porch and each other’s company a little bit longer!

    • Reply Elinor Hill aka Beach Hut Cook 26th July 2017 at 3:37 pm

      Definitely Michelle! I love a fellow outdoor drinker! Also if you run out of gin another good hot drink with a kick is shop-bought bottled mulled wine, microwaved in a mug – honest. When we lived in Germany, that’s what they all did. We soon adopted the German way of life. Elinor x

    Ooo what a fab idea to take the chill off!! Sounds lovely x

    I’m not a fan of gin, but the idea of a hot cocktail sounds interesting

    My mummy is used to drinking a hot toddy with whisky and cloves but has never tried warm gin! Sounds perfect for camping trips!

    I have never tried gin! Shocking, I know 🙂 Maybe in winter we will stock up for cocktails and I will give it a go!

    I grew up by the sea and now live in London and do miss it. Luckily I get to go to the Suffolk coast a lot so it make up for it a bit. Love the idea of this hot gin toddy be it by the sea or in the garden watching the sun go down, So I shall just have to make it sometime soon
