I think they say laughter is the best medicine but failing that, if you're anything like me - have a few gins and you'll soon be giggling away. I bloody love a good Gin so when I was invited to the Guildford Gin Festival, I knew this was a must attend event! 

We attended the Sunday afternoon session, unfortunately the weather didn't quite deliver on that day as it was absolutely freezing! Weather aside, we were there to try the fabulous variety of gins which they had available and the way in which it worked was that you payed with tokens. We were kindly gifted a couple of free drinks as part of attending the event which was amazing. 

My first & probably my favourite drink of choice was the Tinker Gin Pink - this wasn't a gin I had tried previously but definitely one I would have again. I love love love pink gin - this has a delicious strawberry flavour! When trying this initially I had this with a normal tonic.

Other drinks we tried included...

Sharish Blue Magic Gin: It's magic as this turns from blue / purple to pink when you add tonic... very 'instagrammable' and tastes amazing too! 

Rhubarb Rumble: My favourite cocktail by far from the festival and maybe I had a few too many of these on the day. This drink tastes so good that honestly it must be really unhealthy for you - made up of Edinburgh Rhubarb & Ginger Liqueur, Advocat, Apple Juice, Lemon juice, Rhubarb Bitters and finished off with a rhubarb and custard sweet! Reading the description of this drink, I was curious to give it a try but did not think it would be a favourite of mine but i'm obsessed.

Anyone know where I can get this drink again? If not, I'm going to have to learn how to make it. 

Tinker Pink Fizz: Made up of Tinker Pink Gin, Prosecco, Elderflower Cordial, Creme de Fraise, Cranberry Juice, Mint & Lemon Juice. Another delicious drink! 

Also, another bonus from the event was we were able to take our Gin Festival glasses away with us, so I can now enjoy my drinks at home using proper glasses too! 

Overall, we had a fab day at the Gin Festival and would definitely love to go back again. Let me know if you've ever been before or if there are any similar events happening soon...
