    Want to add pizzazz to G&T hour? Consider swapping out your old faithful for one of the best pink gins. Pink gins are made with juniper and other botanicals, just like regular gins. What’s different is that they have a rosy hue and another wow-factor element: fruit flavour. There’s an old-school cocktail called Pink Gin, but the modern trend is very different. It gathered steam with the launch of Pinkster gin back in 2013, when founder Stephen Marsh worked out that raspberries go great with juniper. He started soaking them in booze, with scrummy, colourful results. Today, there are loads of different pink gins out there, infused with everything from rhubarb to pink peppercorns and even pinot noir grapes. If it’s pink and fruity, there’s probably a gin out there made with it. If you aren’t sure you like gin, pink gin is a game-changer. Most are slightly sweeter than traditional gins, and the juicy fruit offsets the piney (sometimes polarising) juniper taste. When mixed with tonic, the best pink gins are irresistible. Because of its fruity profile, many people...
    New shoes that make my legs look longer (£40). A blow-dry that takes the frizz out of my curls (£25). That crop top I saw on Instagram with the sexy shoulder strap (£30). If this list sounds extravagant, that's because it is. But these are just some of the expenses I would normally incur in the run-up to a date. Or, at least, expenses I used to incur when I had the money to spend on such superfluities. Today, everything is different. The cost-of-living crisis has meant that my weekly food shop has gone up from £30 to £40, my rent has increased by £100 a month — and is likely to go up further next year. I've started going to my gym purely to use the shower. And my mother is starting to clock on to my strategy of frequently visiting her after work...just in time for dinner. When people are choosing between eating and heating, it might sound myopic to consider the impact of the current crisis on our love lives. But what couples and families may not...
    Choosing the best tipple just got a lot easier as there is now a league table of the healthiest alcoholic drinks. Top of the list is red wine, which decades of evidence suggests may – in moderation, of course – be good for the heart. But more surprisingly, second choice for the health-conscious is craft cider. The bad news for those who cannot resist a gin and tonic is that this is the least healthy choice, along with all spirits, including vodka and whisky. The list was compiled by the nutrition expert Tim Spector, who is professor of genetic epidemiology at King's College London, and who analysed data on more than 20 popular drinks. Top of the list of healthiest alcoholic drinks is red wine, which decades of evidence suggests may – in moderation, of course – be good for the heart They were judged for polyphenols – plant compounds which are good for the gut and reduce inflammation in the body, which is linked to poor health in older people.

    SCIENTISTS have got in the spirit and come up with the formula for the perfect gin and tonic. They say it should be chilled to -18C and served with crescent-shaped ice. 2Scientists say it should be chilled to -18C and served with crescent-shaped iceCredit: Alamy 2 The tonic should be poured at 5C into a large, balloon-shaped Copa de Balon glass which has been chilled to -4C. Boffins even worked out it should ideally be drunk on a day when the temperature is 21C and finished within 30 minutes, before too much of the ice has melted. They advise never to drink it through a straw, stir it more than twice or serve it with a lime. They suggest adding mango and a sprig of pine.

    From having the tissue she offered to the Queen confiscated to attempting to warm Prince Charles with a bottle of gin on a cold day of filming, Jenny Hanley has revealed the hilariously awkward situations she's had with the royal family. The 74-year-old, who is now a presenter on Boom Radio, is best known as  Bond Girl and for presenting children's show Magpie throughout the 1970s, which led to some memorable moments with the royals when she interviewed them for the programme.  She admitted to making a faux pas during a live broadcast of Magpie from Hyde Park in 1979 by handing the Queen a tissue when she sneezed, while Prince Philip and Princess Anne's sense of humour have also left her in hysterics. Jenny, who lives in London, told how her first faux pas came after mistaking the Queen for a child, saying: 'We were doing a live Magpie broadcast from Hyde Park for the biggest children's party in the world, and Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip arrived.

    'Had the potential to cause harm' The unnamed teacher's apology note included an admission that she realized that the lesson "was not culturally responsive." “Prior to spring break, I taught a tactile lesson involving raw cotton in an effort to get the students to understand the difficulty of manually processing cotton prior to the invention of Eli Whitney’s Cotton Gin,” the teacher said in the parent letter. “While this lesson was sourced from reliable sources, after conferring with the administration and hearing many of the students reflections, I realize that this lesson was not culturally responsive and had the potential to cause harm." “In teaching U.S. history, there are many challenging and sensitive topics to learn about and I look forward to continuing to improve my approach to addressing these, with support from the administration," the teacher continued. In a statement on the matter, school director Fernando Aguilar said, "We didn’t feel like the lesson fit into our mission and our vision. We don’t take things lightly that affect the well-being of our students.” Aguilar declined to comment on...
    An award winning gin distiller has revealed his top tricks and tips for when it comes to making a classic martini cocktail from home.   Tim Boast from Adelaide, won big at the World Gin Awards when he took home the title of World's Best Distiller and his Triple Juniper Gin won World's Best London Dry Gin. He says the classic cocktail is traditionally made with either gin or vodka and a splash of vermouth, a strong wine, is added into the drink along with orange bitters. An award winning gin distiller has revealed his top tricks and tips for when it comes to making a classic martini cocktail from home When it comes to choosing the spirit content Tim says vodka gives the cocktail neutral body, whereas gin can enhance the botanicals and bring out big flavours.  A wet or dry martini depends on the ratio of spirit to vermouth, a drier drink will have a higher spirit content and a wet drink will contain more vermouth.  'If you are new to martini’s then ordering “wet” is an approachable way...
    LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Go For Gin, who won the 1994 Kentucky Derby and was the race’s oldest living winner, has died. He was 31. Kentucky Horse Park announced on its web site that Go For Gin died Tuesday from heart failure. He had lived there since retiring from stud in June 2011. Trained by Hall of Famer Nick Zito, the Kentucky-bred son of Cormorant and Never Knock by Stage Door Johnny won five times with seven seconds and two thirds in 19 starts. He earned $1.380 million lifetime, and his progeny have earned more than $16.5 million. With Hall of Famer Chris McCarron aboard, Go For Gin started the 120th Derby from the No. 8 post on a sloppy track but was in front by the half-mile point on the way to a two-length victory over Strodes Creek. Favorite Holy Bull finished 12th after breaking poorly from the No. 4 post. McCarron said he was saddened to learn of the horse’s passing and added, “My memories of him giving me a second Kentucky Derby victory will remain indelible in...
    This is my last column for Half Full. Over the past five-and-a-half years, I’ve been lucky enough to write a great number of them here, on any topic I found interesting. Anything from the crucial role African American bartenders played in the development of the American way of mixing drinks; to the history of America’s oldest whiskey brand, Old Overholt; to the difference between Aristotelian bartending and Platonic bartending; to the epic, or at least epically long, story of New Orleans’ oldest bar (in four parts, no less); and a whole lot of other things besides. Histories of cocktails, biographies of famous bartenders, appreciations of classic bars, all kinds of stuff. But panta rhei, as Heraclitus said—“all things flow”—and that hasn’t changed an iota in the 2,500-odd years since he said it. All we can do is try to stay afloat in that mighty river and hope to wash up somewhere interesting, at least for a time. Half Full was somewhere interesting. I’m looking forward to the next shoal. I’m going to try to go out as helpfully as...

    Some cocktails warm the blood. Others stimulate the mind. But some are simply designed to make life more fun or, perhaps in the case of the Royal Family, more bearable. Take the royals’ favourite rocket fuel that is Gordon’s Gin (with an alcohol content of 37.5 per cent), Dubonnet (a wine-based aperitif flavoured with herbs and an alcohol content of 14.8 per cent), ice, a slice and, please, please, no dreary old mixer. The Queen Mother was a huge fan —often confiding she couldn’t possibly navigate her endless engagements ‘without a little something’. Dubonnet was invented to stop French legionnaires catching malaria and pepped up two Queen Elizabeths as their pre-prandial sharpener Or perhaps not so little. Once, when detailing arrangements for a royal picnic, she provided her favourite page, Billy Tallon, with a small, handwritten note. ‘I think,’ it said, ‘that I will take 2 small bottles of Dubonnet and Gin with me this morning, in case it is needed.’ Which, doubtless, it was. The Queen is also a huge enthusiast. Until recently (when she decided to take a temporary...
    THE Queen has given up the booze — ditching the gin cocktail she is said to have enjoyed every evening. The 95-year-old decided to stop drinking alcohol ahead of her Platinum Jubilee next year, royal sources confirmed yesterday. 3Her Majesty has decided to stop drinking alcohol ahead of her Platinum Jubilee next year, royal sources confirmed yesterdayCredit: AFP - Getty Her husband, Prince Philip, was reported to have mixed her a gin and martini each evening. The Queen was also a big fan of a zaza cocktail – otherwise known as a gin and Dubonnet. But she will now drink just sparkling water or tomato juice, with a royal source saying: “It was a personal decision.” Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, said: “She has never been a heavy drinker as she just had the odd cocktail. She is a creature of habit but I don’t think she will miss it. It is a sensible decision.” Her sister, Princess Margaret, was known as a heavy drinker before her death aged 71, as was the Queen Mother who lived to...
    The Queen has been 'ordered to quit drinking by royal doctors,' according to a magazine quoting a family friend. Her Majesty, who is in good physical health and has been seen using a walking stick during recent engagements in Wales 'for comfort' rather than any medical reason, has allegedly been advised to forgo alcohol except for special occasions.  According to two sources close to the monarch, doctors have also given the advice ahead of the monarch's Platinum Jubilee celebrations next June.  'The Queen has been told to give up her evening drink which is usually a martini,' a family friend is said to have told Vanity Fair's Katie Nicholl. 'It's not really a big deal for her, she is not a big drinker but it seems a trifle unfair that at this stage in her life she's having to give up one of very few pleasures.'

    (CNN Business)Garden peas are sometimes an afterthought on our dinner plates. But one Scottish farm-based distillery is reimagining the humble legume as the star ingredient in its eco-friendly gin. Arbikie Highland Estate in Arbroath has created a line of spirits called Nàdar ("nature" in Gaelic) which removes more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than it emits, making it "climate-positive," says Kirsty Black, master distiller at Arbikie. Spirits are usually made by fermenting grains such as wheat or barley, cereal crops that typically require synthetic fertilizers. By using peas instead of wheat for the base spirit, Arbikie avoids the carbon emissions and pollution created by synthetic fertilizers. Then, after distillation, residual pea by-products are then used to make high-protein animal feed, with zero waste. Black says consumers are increasingly interested in sustainably produced spirits, and hopes that Nàdar will introduce other producers to the opportunities.Peas don't need fertilizingRead MoreThe production of synthetic fertilizers is energy intensive, says Felicity Crotty, a senior lecturer at the Rural Agricultural University in London. A 2017 study found that 43% of a loaf of bread's carbon...
    Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said Thursday that President Joe Biden was attempting to “gin up more animosity and cause division.” Gutfeld said on “The Five” that Biden was painting unvaccinated Americans as “the new terrorists” in his speech mandating that private businesses require the coronavirus vaccine for their employees. (RELATED: ‘Not A Good Decision’: Greg Gutfeld Says Sending VP Harris To Help Newsom Is Like Asking Charlie Sheen To Be Your AA Sponsor) WATCH: Gutfeld pointed to the part of the speech when Biden voiced empathy for Americans who were mad at those who had thus far refused the vaccines. “The great unifier is saying all those who are vaxxed are mad those who aren’t. This is not true. It’s all there to just gin up more animosity and cause division,” Gutfeld said. “Basically, he said that the unvaxxed are the new terrorists, that’s what he did.

    8 impressive records set at Tokyo 2020 1:06 Aomi Urban Sports Park, Tokyo (CNN) – Spaniard Alberto Ginés made history at the Tokyo Olympics as the first climbing gold medalist. The men’s combined final came to a dramatic denouement at Aomi Urban Sports Park on Thursday, as podium positions were swapped throughout the main event. Ginés, 18, who started the competition with a victory in the speed test, finished with 28 points. The American Nathaniel Coleman took silver with 30, while the Austrian Jakob Schubert, the only climber to overcome the main wall, took a dramatic bronze on the last climb of the day to finish with 35 points. The climbers obtained points in three events: speed, bouldering and lead, which were multiplied to obtain a final score. Nathaniel Coleman, Alberto Ginés and Jakob Schubert pose with their medals. Ginés, the youngest Olympic medalist in history, said having his “head in place” was the key to his success. “For the past year, my head has not worked very well for me, from the beginning [de] the season, and...

    What Alberto Ginés achieved will go down in the history of Spanish sport as a feat of enormous dimensions. We explain why.
    08/05/2021 at 11:37 AM CEST . The Spanish Alberto Ginés finished today in first position in the discipline of speed in sport climbing, the first of the three parts that make up the Olympic final for this sport at the Tokyo Games. Ginés was the winner of all the pairings between the eight climbers competing in this Olympic final, with which he starts at the top in terms of medal options in the absence of the other two tests of the final being held this Thursday, bouldering and lead. The climber from Cáceres completed his ascent in 6.42 seconds in his last match against the Japanese Tomoa Narasaki, who suffered a fall and finished more than a second. Ginés thus achieved the best score in this first third of the final, and momentarily leads the fight for gold while waiting for the other two tests to be held this Thursday at the Aaomi Urban Sports Park, in Tokyo. The final classification will be determined by combining the positions in each of the events of this sport...

    Gin or vodka, shaken or stirred, dry or wet — it's all down to preference. Travis White / EyeEm/Getty Images A classic martini is made using gin as the base but vodka is also popular. Stirring a martini makes a stronger drink while shaking makes a colder cocktail. A dry martini contains less vermouth, wet contains more, and a dirty martini contains olive juice. Visit Insider's Home & Kitchen Reference library for more stories. The martini is instantly recognizable as a classic cocktail sophisticated enough for James Bond. But who invented the iconic drink? Some claim it started out as a Martinez in the mid to late 1800s, a sweet cocktail that evolved from the Manhattan. Others suggest it evolved from the Marguerite (named for a brand of vermouth), while some believe it was named for the vermouth brand Martini & Rossi. While the inventor and origin story may be lost to drunk history, the evolution is clear. The martini started sweeter — sometimes using ingredients like sweet vermouth, curacao, and bitters, along with a higher ratio...
    At the most discerning get-togethers this summer, you may find yourself sipping wine or gin that was poured from a paper bottle, not a glass one. Big drinks producers such as Bacardi, Johnnie Walker, Absolut and Carlsberg are experimenting with ways to reduce their carbon footprint. But while they test different combinations of paper pulp and sustainable bioplastics, a few small independents have already begun to sell alcohol in lightweight, environmentally friendly paper-based bottles. Essex winemaker The English Vine was the first to embrace paper: its No.1 wine is now sold in a ‘Frugal’ bottle made by the UK company Frugalpac. English Vine hopes to sell all its wines in paper bottles by 2026. The Frugal bottle looks like glass but is five times lighter and its carbon footprint is 84 per cent lower.

    A New Jersey nursing home resident who tested positive for COVID-19 on her 105th birthday has now beaten the virus, crediting her resilience to her ritual of consuming nine gin-soaked raisins a day and 'no junk food'. Lucia DeClerck, who lives at the Mystic Meadows nursing home in Little Egg Harbor, has survived three husbands, two world wars, and now two pandemics. The great-great grandmother, who was two-year-old when the Spanish flu outbreak hit, has now recovered from the coronavirus more than a century later, having tested positive for the disease on January 25.  DeClerck's diagnosis came the day after she received her second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, Mystic Meadows administrator Michael Neiman told the New York Times.  Despite being considered a high-risk patient on account of her age, Neiman said DeClerck didn't exhibit any serious symptoms of the virus and was back in her room within two weeks, clutching her rosary beads and wearing her signature knitted hat and sunglasses. 'I'm feeling wonderful', she told CBS on Monday, adding the secret to her longevity was 'pray, pray, pray...

    A nutritionist has revealed the alcoholic drink that contains more calories than a McDonald's cheeseburger - and it's bad news for anyone partial to cola-flavoured cocktails. Nutritionist Terri-Ann Nunns determined the calorific content of some of the world's most popular tipples to advise drinkers of what they are really consuming this New Year. The British dietitian found the famously potent Long Island iced tea was one of the worst offenders, laced with almost 140 calories more than the Macca's classic. A Long Island - made with an array of spirits including gin, rum, tequila, vodka and triple sec mixed with Coke - can contain up to 400 calories, while a standard McDonald's cheeseburger contains just 263.

    WITH bars and pubs closed for the better part of 2020, many people have turned to drinking booze at home instead. But one woman took her love for gin to a whole new level and created her very own "gin palace" for just £100. 6Charlotte Medcraft and her partner made the epic bar for just £100Credit: Supplied There's no shortage of variety either as Charlotte Medcraft stocked up on every kind imaginable.

    Adobe Dear Oracle, I'm in my early 30s, and my parents have recently separated. They have decided to keep their finances joined, which is driving them, and me, fucking bonkers. They argue about bills, who's responsible for what, and all the things they are entitled to. I'm pretty worried that one or both of them might do something shortsighted (dumb/selfish) that could adversely affect them both financially, which is the last thing I want.  My question is: How involved should I be? I'm in a position where I could take control of most of their finances and ensure that they both can live fairly comfortable lives. Still, I'm worried about the very real possibility that their anger and frustration with each other will just refocus on me, and I'll be the bad guy. I don't want to be in the position of parenting my parents, but part of me feels like that might be the best option. What should I do? —Swell intentions Cards: Fool reversed, Nine of Pentacles, Tower, High Priestess.  Swell, this is a problem big enough that three...
    A MUM claims her hairdresser 'got drunk necking gin' while dying her hair and fitting a weave - leaving her with the 'worst hairstyle of 2020' and a NEEDLE stuck in her scalp. Emily Hunt, 24, said she 'wanted to die' when she realised just how terrible her hair looked after getting the sew-in weave before the second lockdown last Monday. 12Emily Hunt was left horrified when she saw the results of her hair dresser getting drunk while doing her weaveCredit: Kennedy News and Media Hairdresser Emily asked a former work colleague if she would touch up her roots, add some highlights and attach a £225 human hair piece before English hair salons shut for a second time on November 5. The friend agreed and asked for £70 to cover her time and expertise, quoting £25 to apply hair dye Emily provided and a further £45 to braid and sew in the hair piece Emily bought. Emily said the woman, who she'd recently reconnected with, spent four-and-a-half hours at her home carrying out the work - while necking gin and...
    AFTER the year we've had, you might be looking for something a little stronger than your average G&T and, luckily, a company has just launched the world's strongest gin - just in time for Christmas. The Anno Extreme 95 Gin, which is a whopping 95 percent alcohol by volume, was created by a couple of scientists who quit their jobs almost 10 years ago and turned to alcohol instead (nice one). 3Anno is the world's strongest gin which is 95 percent alcohol by volumeCredit: Anno Gin The gin in question has a bunch of botanicals which make up the yummy flavour including fennel, coriander, nutmeg and liquorice - how good does that sound? And according to the gin's tasting notes, it has "robust juniper and smooth spices" that "soften into a fresh bite of citrus with sweet herbal notes'"- and has a "long, dry and complex" finish with "hints of warm liquorice". The Kent-based company says: "Developed by scientists with a taste for adventure and pushing the limits of possibility, Anno Extreme 95 Gin was produced with one goal in mind - to create 'the spirit...
    What follows is a tale of depravity and joy, of low-life and sophistication, of creativity and unscrupulousness, of medieval mystics and scientists. Gin’s globe-spanning story weaves through medicine, alchemy, politics, the birth of national identity and that of the working class, imperialism, the spice trade, war, disease, Prohibition, frivolous Bright Young Things, and hard-eyed WASP businessmen. Gin’s praises have been sung by great writers and musicians, its subtleties created by masterly distillers and given extra dimensions by mixologists. In its time, it 
has variously been blamed for society’s ills and become a symbol of middle-class respectability. Most of all, gin is resilient. It knows that people will eventually come to their senses and appreciate it for what it has always been–a spirit of extraordinary complexity and depth. Listening to gin’s story is to sit at the feet of a war veteran and wonder quite how they survived the fantastical escapades they describe. Survive gin did, and prospered. We are now in gin’s second Golden Age. How we got here, however, is quite a yarn. So sit back…The Miracle BerryGin: How...
    In past years, the Morgan Adams Foundation, which funds research for childhood cancer, has put on one of the best food-related fundraisers in town. The Chili, Booze & Brews festival began in 2017 as a judged competition of chili (both green and red) from some of Denver's best restaurants, along with beers and spirits from Colorado producers. Judges awarded winners for green chile, red chile, vegetarian chile and a "wildcard" category, plus best picks of the breweries and distilleries represented. And ticket holders were able to wander from table to table, sampling spicy offerings from attending chefs along with pairings of craft beer, whiskey, gin, rum and other locally made spirits. The events have always been packed and boisterous, where friends and community leaders met to enjoy a good time while funding the foundation's critical mission. This year, the pandemic precludes sampling chili shoulder to shoulder with fellow revelers, but the Morgan Adams Foundation has come up with a new way to taste your way through the food and drinks of many restaurants, breweries and distilleries while keeping participants...
