Holi Festival, 18th March is a popular ancient Hindu festival, also known as the “festival of spring”, the “festival of colours”, and the “festival of love”. The festival signifies the triumph of good over evil. Holi Festival is a two-day festival and is most known for the second day of celebrations, when people throw multi-coloured perfumed powder called gulal at friends and family.
Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin is a triple-distilled gin, handcrafted in a traditional copper pot still in small batches at one of India’s oldest distilleries, has created three bespoke cocktails in celebration of Holi Festival. They are the perfect colourful drinks to celebrate Holi with friends and family.
To celebrate we were sent a gorgeous cocktail kit so we could try these Jaisalmer Gin Cocktails at home. My housemate and I enjoyed all three and found it difficult to decide which was our favourite!
