Londoners, get ready for the G&T ice-cream bar of your dreams

The days are getting longer, the sun is shining brighter than ever (sometimes) and we’re craving ice cream pretty much non-stop. Also, gin. Ice-cold gin, with a dash of bitter tonic water and a sharp twist of lemon, is exactly what we need on a balmy summer evening.

So you can understand why we’re so very, very excited to learn that there’s a G&T ice-cream parlour heading to London this summer.



Yes, the gin gods have bestowed upon us a great boozy boon.

In just a few short weeks, a G&T ice-cream parlour will be popping up in the courtyard of The Hoxton hotel in London. And, as it’s the brainchild of gin brand Gin Mare and ice-cream experts Ruby Violet, this alcoholic ice cream is going to be far more than just another frozen treat.

You’ll be able to opt between a scoop of gin-infused ice cream or sorbet (we can taste all of those heady botanicals now), before umm-ing and aah-ing your way through the toppings selection.

Think crystallised rosemary, dried olives, botanical brittle, savoury wafer and gin-soaked orange peel, to name a few.

In short, it’s the ideal way to create an utterly unique G&T-infused concoction.

If you needed an extra reason to attend, it’s worth remembering that our favourite juniper juice is packed full of health benefits – so we’ll go ahead and say you’ll even be doing your mood and your body a favour by cooling off with one of these boozy beauties.



However, as is so often the case with good things, the magic won’t last for long: the G&T ice-cream parlour will only be open from 9 to 11 June.

Best get your skates on, eh? We’ll see you there…

The G&T ice cream parlour will open 9-11 June at the Hoxton Hotel, 81 Great Eastern St, EC2A 3HU. You do not need tickets to attend – just show up and join the queue.
