Recipes for gin cocktails for moments of pleasure like on the Mediterranean Photo: djd/

In summer we usually stay at home. Then it's nice with us too. The sun is shining. We enjoy our garden and terrace. We avoid the crowds in the holiday regions wherever possible. We tend to go on trips to the lakes or mountains in our area. We prefer to travel and do longer tours in spring and autumn. Instead, in summer we chill out on our terrace under the awning and imagine we're in Italy or Slovenia. This works best with gin cocktails, whose recipes are reminiscent of the Mediterranean.

Enjoy the flavors of the Mediterranean at home in a cocktail with gin

A mixture of siesta and dolce vita, that's what makes you yearn for holiday destinations from Barcelona to Capri. With ingredients and fun to mix yourself, gin cocktails bring this attitude to life into your own four walls. Gin Mare, for example, transports a large portion of the typical Mediterranean charm. Mediterranean ingredients create new flavors in cocktail classics. Arbequina olives from Spain, basil from Italy, thyme from Turkey and rosemary from Greece give this gin its character. The alternative for creations like on the Mediterranean is about Gin Mare Capri with citrus notes and bergamot.

Monika Fuchs and Petar Fuchs are the authors and publishers of the Food and Slow Travel blog  TravelWorldOnline. They have been publishing this blog since 2005. TravelWorldOnline has been online since 2001. Their topics are trips to Savor, wine tourism worldwide and slow travel. During her studies Monika Fuchs spent some time in North America, where she - partly together with Petar Fuchs - traveled to the USA and Canada and spent a research year in British Columbia. This intensified her thirst for knowledge, which she satisfied for 6 years as an adventure guide for Rotel Tours and then for 11 years as a tour guide for Studiosus Reisen around the world. She was constantly expanding her travel regions, but curiosity still gnawed at her: "What's beyond the horizon? What else is there to discover in this city? Which people are interesting here? What do they eat in this region?" As a freelance travel journalist (her articles have appeared in DIE ZEIT, 360° Canada, 360° USA, etc.), she is now looking for answers to these questions as a travel writer and travel blogger in many countries around the world. Petar Fuchs produces the videos on this blog as well as on YouTube. Monika Fuchs from TravelWorldOnline is among Germany's top 50 bloggers in 2021.
