Hey guys! So I’ve finally made a blog/ website 😀! The reason why Onedrinkadayblog.com was made was to share and expand the content on my Instagram page @onedrinkaday (Click on the Instagram icon in the social media box on this page )
To cut a long story short: I started posting cocktail 🍹/ drinks photos on my personal Instagram page in October of 2016 (at this time I had something like 145 followers: mainly friends and family) and fast forward to today: I have grown to 6133 followers as I write this post and continue to grow : Thanks to all my supporters 🙌🙏❤️ Love you guys !!!!
Basically what I do is create cocktails and drinks with a huge emphasis on presentation , styling and garnishing ! I also try to invent new and exciting flavour combinations . I have made this page to give my followers a platform to better engage and interact with myself , which can’t be easily achieved on Instagram (as it’s more photo/ visual in nature) + I’ve been getting a few emails lately with questions asking how to make a certain garnish, exact recipes and methods , or how to do this and that etc etc…. which can take some time to respond to 😅.
Onedrinkadayblog will showcase beautiful photos + recipes of cocktails 🍹 and drinks, tutorials and tips on drink styling, features of spirits and liqueurs that I use, discussion forums/ recipe sharing platforms, giveaways, and much more 👍!
Ok, enough of all that boring intro stuff . Today is INTERNATIONAL GIN AND TONIC DAY ( and there is another one later in the year: how cool!) . To celebrate 🎉 I smashed out a few gin and tonic variations using Brookie’s Gin by Cape Byron Distillery and feeling a bit tipsy actually 🙃👍! This gin is from Byron Bay and the botanicals used are foraged from the forest 🌳 (behind the family farm) , which the Brook family planted 30 years ago: how amazing! You guys should check them out if you haven’t already: www.capebyrondistillery.com
Enough talking now , time to see the photo! Happy drinking everyone and happy International Gin and Tonic Day. Cheers!
