Whether you are at home alone or in confined quarters with others, whether you are busier and more stressed than ever, or on the contrary, looking for things to do – being at home so much right now can mean very long days. That’s why we thought we would help with inspiration to carve out some small moments of valuable and well-deserved ‘me time’ right now.
Practice your home bartender skills
Any home bartenders without a cocktail shaker and strainer in the house right now can simply use a reusable water bottle or resealable jar and a tea strainer or sieve instead. Did you also know that the average egg cup holds around 50ml of liquid, so can be used to measure a double (or half for a single)? These are our top tips for anyone without a cocktail making kit who would like to try out their home bartender skills at the moment.
Grow your own sage in the garden
This is the perfect time of year to plant your own sage at home. As well as being easy to grow and look after, this aromatic plant will help add a herbaceous kick to cooking, baking and even your next One Gin G&T as the ultimate savoury garnish.
Get baking with your favourite gin
There’s lots of time to dust off your baking utensils and get creative in the kitchen right now. This special Gin-Soaked Apple and Almond Tart recipe with One Sage & Apple Gin from Craft Gin Club is sure to be a hit with those in need of a treat.
Brighten your home with butterfly arts and crafts
The butterfly effect is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why we love these colourful butterfly suncatchers from Crafts on Sea. Follow Kate’s step by step guide to instantly brighten any room. A perfect sunny Sunday activity at home.
Treat yourself to a frozen after dinner digestif
For a refreshing, fruity, spring tipple, simply place a bottle of One Sage & Apple Gin in your freezer then (from three hours onwards) serve straight up into a chilled glass.
