Carpe Diem

This cocktail is robust in spices and aromas and can be enjoyed by serious cocktail lovers and anyone with a bit of fire in their belly. The chocolatey hazelnut flavour of the wattleseed is complex but compatible with the nuances of this Dry Ginger Ale. Then the oils in the orange rind with the smoked cinnamon stick puts the whole drink into a whole new depth.
Dry Ginger Ale & Wattleseed Gin


Dry Ginger Ale & Wattleseed Gin


  • Fill glass with ice.
  • Pour in one Gingle Bells Bauble (50ml) Wattleseed Gin – including the wattleseeds.
  • Top with Strange Love Dry Ginger Ale.
  • Garnish with some twirled rounds of orange rind and a smoking cinnamon stick (put cinnamon stick upright in glass.  Put a match or kitchen blow torch to it until the end is lit and starts smoking.  Blown out any flames and allow to continue smoking as the rest of the drink is poured and enjoyed). 


This cocktail is very savoury with the rosemary extract ingredient in the Dirty Tonic. The pepperberry in the gin combines beautifully to add an additional savoury element and hot aromatic kick at the end of each sip.

Dirty Tonic and Pepperberry Gin


  • Fill a glass with ice.
  • Pour in one Gingle Bells Bauble (50ml) Pepperberry Gin – including the pepperberries).
  • Top with Strange Love Dirty Tonic water.
  • Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary and a large blackberry on a cocktail pick.


The spectacular flavour and bitterness of the Bitter Lemon mixer is able to shine bright with the subtlety of the Butterfly Pea Flower Gin. Where the Butterfly Pea Flower gives way to flavour, it punches out an amazing colour change from blue to purple when it blends with the tonic.

The strength and extra aromatics of the Fingerlime Gin and this no-nonsense No. 8 Tonic go hand in hand to make a seriously ballsy but refreshing G&T.

  • Pour in one Gingle Bells Gin Bauble (50ml) Fingerlime Gin.

This cocktail has subtle floral notes from the unique flavours of the Snow Chrysanthemum Flower Gin. The delicate but herbaceous aromas are free to roam when blended with the Light Tonic water.

Light Tonic Water and Snow Chrysanthemum Gin


  • Fill a high ball with ice.
  • Pour in one Gingle Bells Gin Bauble (50ml) Snow Chrysanthemum Gin.
  • Top up with Strange Love Light Tonic Water.
  • Garnish with a sprig of fresh lemon thyme.


The Hibiscus Gin on its own is quite beautifully tart so is balanced perfectly well with the sweetness of the Fancy Lemonade. Lemon and hibiscus are always a perfect flavour pairing.

Fancy Lemonade and Wild Hibiscus Gin


  • Fill a glass with ice.
  • Arrange one or two Wild Hibiscus Flowers in glass (In this cocktail the flowers were turned inside out to make a star shape and sat nicely on the inside wall of the glass).
  • Pour in one Gingle Bells Gin Bauble (50ml) Wild Hibiscus Gin.
  • Top with Strange Love Fancy Lemonade.
  • Garnish with a sprig of mint and twirled round of lemon peel.
