The 1670 Cocktail

Kath's Kitchen / Monday, July 9th, 2018

A couple of months ago Aaron and I visited the wonderful Edinburgh Gin Distillery and, after trying their new limited edition gin, 1670, we purchased our own bottle. 1670 is a gin birthed from the collaboration of Edinburgh Gin and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. It’s described as botany meets gin distilling and it’s delicious. You can buy a bottle from either the Edinburgh Gin website or you can find it at John Lewis. Since the gin, to me, tastes like summer, I celebrated Sunday evening (for Sunday evenings should always be celebrated) by making a cocktail with 1670. Here’s how to make it.

Ingredients | For one

  • 50ml Edinburgh Gin 1670
  • 75ml Indian tonic water (slimline)
  • Prosecco
  • 2 basil leaves
  • Two sticks of cucumber
  • Ice


  1. Add ice to your gin glass (an Edinburgh Gin one is preferable, but not essential).
  2. Add the gin and tonic water.
  3. Fill the rest of your glass up with Prosecco.
  4. Add the cucumber as stirrers and place the basil leaves on top.
  5. Enjoy (in the sun).

When life gives you gin, make a cocktail (or three).

Love, Kath
