BEST GIN AND TONIC RECIPE - INSPIRED TASTE



Best Gin and Tonic Recipe - Inspired Taste image

The best gin and tonic balances the bitterness of tonic water against the aromatics of the gin. A London dry gin (such as Beefeater), Plymouth or Bombay work well. London dry gins will be more straightforward in flavor while Plymouth gin will be a bit more aromatic. We’ve also used Bombay Sapphire and loved it, but we really enjoy Sapphire’s extra spiciness.

GIN & TONIC CAKE RECIPE - BBC GOOD FOOD



Gin & tonic cake recipe - BBC Good Food image

Fan of gin & tonic? What could be better than your favourite tipple in cake form? A fabulous showstopper for afternoon tea or a summer celebration

Provided by Elena Silcock

Categories     Afternoon tea, Dessert, Treat

Total Time 1 hours 45 minutes

Prep Time 1 hours

Cook Time 45 minutes

Yield 15

Number Of Ingredients 18

250g salted butter
325g golden caster sugar
4 eggs
250g self-raising flour
75g natural yogurt
2 large limes, juice only
75ml gin
150ml tonic water
1 tsp juniper berries, lightly crushed
200g softened butter
400g icing sugar
2 tbsp milk
zest of 3 limes (using up those you've juiced, above)
2 limes, zested then 1 cut into thin wedges to decorate
1 tbsp granulated sugar
lemon sherbets
¼ cucumber, peeled into ribbons
party straws

Steps:

  • Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas mark 4. Greese and line 2 x 20cm cake tins. In a freestanding electric mixer, or using an electric whisk, beat together the butter and 200g of the sugar until pale and fluffy, for around 5 mins. Add the eggs one by one, making sure they are fully incorporated before adding the next one. If the mixture looks like it might split, add a tablespoon of your flour, then fold in the rest of the flour. Mix the natural yogurt with the juice of one of the limes and 50ml of the gin, then add this to the cake mixture to make a thick and silky mixture. Split the mixture between the cake tins and bake for 35 mins until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Meanwhile, make the syrup. Put the remaining sugar, tonic water, juniper berries and juice of one lime into a saucepan over medium heat. Once the sugar has dissolved, bring to the boil and cook for 5-7 mins, until it’s a thick syrup. Cool for 5 mins, strain then pour in the remaining gin and set aside.
  • Once the cake is out of the oven, allow to cool for 5 mins, then prick all over with a skewer, then liberally spoon the syrup mix over both of the cakes. Allow to cool completely in the tin.
  • To make the buttercream, beat the butter until soft, then add the icing sugar, a little at a time to avoid a sugar cloud! Once fully incorporated, add the milk and the zest of the limes.
  • To assemble, place one of the cake layers on a cake board, cover with 1/3 of the buttercream then sit the second cake layer on top. Cover this, too, in just a thin coat of icing then put the cake in the fridge for 30 mins to firm up – this will make it easier to get the rest of the icing on smoothly. Use the remaining buttercream to cover the top and sides of the cake.
  • To decorate, mix the lime zest with the sugar. Sprinkle this over the cake and finish with lemon sherbets, lime slices, cucumber ribbons, party straws and any other gin & tonic paraphernalia you fancy.
