Fixing yourself a G&T, with cold tonic, crushed ice, a few glugs of gin and perhaps a fresh slice of cucumber or a few sprigs of mint, is one of life’s simple pleasures.

However, over the many months of lockdown we’ve started experimenting with ways to jazz up the humble gin & tonic to transform it into an Instagram-worthy cocktail.

From adding blended fruits to a drizzle of honey, there are myriad ways to spruce up a basic gin-based long drink.

But we’ve recently discovered a new way to take our cocktail game up a level. While scrolling through the John Lewis & Partners website, we stumbled across a shimmery electric blue gin.

Yes, you read that right, an electric blue gin.

It’s made from a combination of blue and Scottish raspberries, which will not only rock your taste buds with flavours of soft, smooth ripe fruit, but also delivers an added surprise:

When you add a sparkling mixer to this shimmering liqueur, it will trigger a magical colour-changing reaction, which sees the gin turn from blue to pink hues.

Reviews of the unique gin, made by Zymurgorium, on the online shopping site, suggest that the liqueur is more than just a passing fad and will become a long-term addition to our drinks cabinet.

“Most psychadelic gin ever! Changes colour with tonic and the glittery shimmer messes with your eyes as you try to pour a measure out. Tastes fantastic, especially with lemonade rather than tonic, it just disappears,” wrote one gin-lover.

While another added: “Easily my favourite gin so far. It is not a strong flavour if you are too heavy on the mixer but get the amount right and it’s amazing.”
