Dr Gin gives Valentines Cocktail Inspiration

All this week, we’ve collaborated with the fantastic Doctor Gin to show you all exactly what you can do with our Valentines Edible Flower Selection Wheel.

The limited edition wheel is made up of beautifully delicate edible flowers in pink, purple and red shades. Often it is hard to know exactly where to use edible flowers to set something off, so we’ve taken the stress away and had Doctor Gin craft some brilliantly romantic cocktails to impress your loved one with this valentines.

If you’ve struggled to keep up with the instagrams this week, don’t worry, as we’ve got all the recipes here! Read away and be inspired to make a cocktail you’ll love this February…
