When it comes to drinking, gin is always my spirit of choice and it seems to be the same for a lot of people at the moment. We have all swapped Malibu for Bombay and Bacardi for Beefeater. As gin just seems to be the more sophisticated of the spirits and not to mention the less ‘calorific’ too, (well that’s what Buzzfeed told me anyway). Yes, it may not leave you feeling so classy afterwards when you are struggling to walk out of the bar, but there’s no shame in that now is there?
So for all you gin lovers out there, the Mixology Society at Oxford Brookes University has got the perfect event for you! The team have partnered with DEUX: Society and Sipsmith to bring you… ‘The Gin Games 2018’. A night solely based on celebrating the magnificent beverage where for just £5, you will be sampling a variety of gins and cocktails all evening. After that you will also have entry to the DEUX: Society after party at the Oxford Retreat and can continue to dance the night away with a G&T in hand!
When it comes to gin, Sipsmith is without a doubt my favourite brand and if you have not tried any of their products yet, this really is your chance to sample some. Their London Dry Gin stands out against any gin you have ever tasted before with its citrus flavour adding an extra bite. Plus, you can expect it on tap at the Gin Games, so what is there not to love? You’ll be sippin’ the night away before you know it. If you are a lover of sloe gin like I am, theirs is simply divine and I have been known to go through a bottle of it like its pop, so I would 100% recommend! Add some ice, tonic water and a dash of lemon juice and you have got yourself a sweet, berry treat.
Is this making you want to get drunk yet? I know it is certainly making me.
The mixologists at Brookes pride themselves in their cocktail making abilities and their fantastic knowledge on good spirits. However, they also know how to throw one heck of a party and this night is certainly not one to miss out on! Plus, it’s black tie! So you can glam yourself up or throw on your smartest get up for a classy night on the town. The night begins with members of the society – or you, if you’re feeling brave – going head to head to create the most impressive gin cocktails and be crowned the master mixologist. Although, you can just simply choose to sit back, drink up and taste the results of the competition instead. To end the evening, you can then head over to the DUEX: Society event where you can continue your night of heavy gin-consumption into the early hours of the morning. You can get your tickets right here!
So to all of you Brookes babes, tell your friends to keep Thursday 15th February free. Then hurry up and grab your tickets! You can then head over to the Facebook event to let Mixology know you will be attending too and find out how you can win some free, yes I said FREE, Sipsmith gin.
