Forty Spotted Pinot Noir Gin Cocktail Recipes Made for Toasting on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is always such an important occasion in our household, and I can’t think of someone I want to toast the day with more than my wonderful mum. Mum is without a doubt my hero, and someone I’ve always looked up to— she always has been and always will be. It’s always great to be able to celebrate her on the day, and that includes sharing a delicious aperitif. We both love a gin-based drink so it was so much fun to be able to team up with Tasmania’s Forty Spotted this Mother’s Day, to try their new Pinot Noir Gin. In a word, it’s gin with hints of grapes, and is such a unique take on a spirit. It’s bold and refreshing and is just the right balance between sweetness and tang. It’s made for cocktails!

Forty Spotted’s Pinot Noir Gin makes for a great Mother’s Day gift with it’s gorgeous bottle (the design, inspired by its distillery location in Tasmania can be flipped on its head, making for a really cool addition to any home bar) and is the perfect addition to any celebration. It’s available from here, Costco and other premium bottle shops. Cheers!
