We made toffee gin and here's what happened...

Nothing says autumn like the taste of sweet and creamy toffee. Think toffee apples on bonfire night and homemade sticky toffee pudding with a big dollop of ice cream...bliss.

Now you can enjoy this seasonal treat either mixed into a beautiful autumnal cocktail, or on its own, over some ice -  by making your very own toffee gin! 

We had a go at making this at CGC HQ and it worked beautifully. It's too easy (and tasty) not to try this at home. Plus, poured into a little bottle with a ribbon and personal tag -  toffee gin would make the perfect gift for a fellow gin lover.

Large glass jar with tightly fitting lid

Method:

Add the Werthers to a food processor and blitz to a powder.
Add the gin and the toffee powder to the jar and give it a good shake.
Continue to shake the mixture every couple of hours throughout the day until the powder is completely dissolved and voila! it's ready.
