As autumn arrives and we face yet more time indoors the delicious, new Limehouse Apple & Cinnamon Gin, is sure to bring some much needed comfort as the evenings grow darker. Available exclusively in Tesco from this month at the bargain price of £15!

A perfectly balanced, limited-edition gin bursting with crisp apple flavour and a hint of cinnamon spice, Limehouse Apple & Cinnamon Gin (37.5% ABV) is delicious served over ice with a good quality tonic water or ginger ale, along with a slice of your favourite apple variety, but as the days and nights get colder, why not warm your cockles with a delicious and super-simple, Limehouse Apple & Cinnamon hot toddy?

Limehouse Hot Toddy recipe
Apple, cinnamon and honey are a winning combination in this cosy cocktail that’s perfect for all sorts of Autumnal occasions, from curling up with a book on a rainy day to warming up after an evening walk on a chilly night or simply as an after dinner treat.

Ingredients for a single serve:
(multiply by the number of people you’re serving if you’re serving in a pitcher or punch bowl)
– 50 ml Limehouse Apple & Cinnamon Gin
– 200 ml pressed apple juice, gently heated
– One teaspoon of honey
– Garnish: Cinnamon and cloves

Method and serve suggestion:
Warm the apple juice in a saucepan, on a medium heat on the hob until it starts to gently bubble. Meanwhile, add the Limehouse Apple & Cinnamon Gin in a glass mug, adding a teaspoon of honey for a touch more sweetness. Stir the gin and honey as you add the warm apple juice. Add a cinnamon stick to garnish, with a couple of cloves sprinkled on top for good measure.

The perfect accompaniment to: Apple crumble after a roast dinner – or an alternative to dessert if you’ve overdone the roast potatoes (no judgement, we’ve all been there).
