When it comes to one of the most popular liquors of the past few years, Gin certainly does come close to the top of the list.

Made popular again in the early 90’s by Snoop Dogg (care of Gin and Juice) it seemed as though the early 2000’s were in fact the era that was “laid back” for the diverse and delicate spirt, but over the last two summers it seems that you can’t go anywhere without seeing a gin based cocktail on offer.

It’s really no surprise as gin makes for some of the best cocktails that we enjoy all summer long, and our friends at East Thirty Six have some of the best one’s you’ll ever taste.

Now we don’t want to enjoy them by ourselves as drinking alone is never a good idea, so in our new series for Addicted TV called Sip Happens each week we will bring you a series of cocktails to inspire, entice and delight.

This week we focus on, Gin and Juice.
