Raspberry & Rhubarb Sparkling Pressé
Frobishers Raspberry & Rhubarb Pressé offers a delightful blend of sweet raspberries and tangy rhubarb. This fruity and slightly tart drink pairs wonderfully with a floral or fruity gin.
A gin with prominent floral notes, such as a classic Old Tom Gin or a contemporary gin infused with botanicals like rose or lavender, will amplify the aromatic qualities of the mixer. The combination of the gin's botanical complexity and the fruity sweetness of the mixer will create a captivating cocktail.
Pink Grapefruit Juice
Frobishers Pink Grapefruit Juice provides a vibrant and tangy mixer option that pairs exceptionally well with gin. The refreshing acidity of grapefruit is an excellent companion to the complex flavours found in a contemporary or citrus-forward gin. Look for a gin that showcases citrus botanicals such as lemon, lime, or orange.
A gin with a prominent citrus profile will go beautifully with the tartness of the grapefruit juice, creating a zesty and invigorating cocktail that is perfect for summer soirées.
Crisp Apple & Elderflower Sparkling Pressé
If you're seeking a light and refreshing gin mixer, Frobishers Crisp Apple & Elderflower Pressé is a great choice. This brilliantly bubbly drink combines the crispness of apple with the delicate floral notes of elderflower.
To complement these flavours, opt for a gin that highlights botanicals like apple, elderflower, or chamomile. A floral gin, such as a classic London Dry Gin with a touch of elderflower infusion, will beautifully enhance the delicate flavours of the mixer. The result is a well-balanced cocktail that exudes elegance and sophistication.
Ginger & Juniper Spectacular Sparkler
For those who enjoy a touch of spice in their cocktails, Frobishers Ginger and Juniper Spectacular Sparkler is the perfect pairing with gin. The combination of fiery ginger and aromatic juniper creates a unique flavour profile that demands a gin with character.
