Gin Lovers Recipes And Ideas For Valentines Day: The Wordless or not so Wordless Wednesday Link Up...

Happy Wednesday Friends!

 Thanks so much for joining us today for The Wordless or not so Wordless Wednesday Link Up!

Love is in the air everywhere I look around
Love is in the air every sight and every sound
And I don't know if I'm being foolish
Don't know if I'm being wise
But it's something that I must believe in
And it's there when I look in your eyes.♭♮

Happy Valentines Day. Any fun plans for today? Going out or staying in?

We are staying in tonight like we do most Valentine's Day and having a nice meal together later.

Over the last few weeks, I have been working closely with Caorunn Gin over on their website to create some delicious recipes.

The main ingredient being their tasty handcrafted premium Scottish gin.


Today I am sharing a few of the recipes I created for them:

Gin Lovers Recipes And Ideas For Valentines Day.

Hands up who like a nice sweet treat!?

Both my hands are in the air.

I am always a fan of desserts.

First up I made a recipe for Burns night.

You can find my Fruit Shortbread Caramel Trifles Recipe here: Burns Night with a Twist. These tasted delicious, even if I do say so myself!

Scottish shortbread base, Caorunn soaked fruit, whipped cream layered up and topped with a biscuit.

Then a Valentines Day recipe.

Love is in the air, it will be with this treat.

You can find mt Gin, Strawberries, Cookie & Cream Upsidedown Cheesecake Recipe here: Say it with flavour this Valentine’s Day.

Gin and tonic anyone?

    1. The Gin was so nice, was as in all the bottle has nearly gone!! Ha.

  6. What you have posted looks so yummy. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a great Valentine's Day.

  7. We're not going out but not really celebrating in either as my husband now has the flu that my boys were all battling last week. I'm sure we'll celebrate at some point later in the month when we're all nice and healthy.

    1. Aww, hope your all fit and well and shake the flu off as soon as possible:)

  8. I love the idea of this recipe, i haven't idea about this gin, but looking elsewhere I see that they give a good score, I'll have to try it.


Please leave me a comment I love to read what you think :)
