Ginger wine Stone's cocktails Gingervidual

Nobody does ginger like TheChicGeek, so, with 2017 officially the year of the #Gingervidual, it would be rude for him not to show you how it’s done! 

Stone’s Ginger Wine is encouraging the nation to declare their love for everything ginger - thought we already knew that?! Embracing the  ‘spirit of ginger’, a Gingervidual is someone who stands up for what they believe in and isn’t afraid to be different. Gingerviduals don't conform to the norm, and they don't follow trends, they create them.

Picture the scene: on a beach, somewhere in the Caribbean, things getting tropical with a jug of cocktail on the go. And relax! (Even if you are just sitting in your back garden in Croydon. FML!).

So, enjoy the last rays of Summer and try one of Stone's Ginger Wine's cocktails created by one of London’s leading expert mixologists.

Here’s the recipe for The #Gingervidual

- 50ml Stones G.W
- 10ml Elderflower cordial

Pour the ingredients into a highball, add some ice cubed, stir and top with soda
water. Garnish with cucumber strips and raspberries.

Can be served in a carafe or jug for sharing. Same method: 250ml Stones GW, 50ml of elderflower cordial, top with soda water.

Happy 7th Birthday Chic Geek

happy birthday geekOh, what a night! TheChicGeek celebrated his 7th birthday in style with ginger themed festivities. Blogging years are a bit like dog years, but he doesn't look a day older than when he started! Seven full-on years have made him into the true chic geek he is today.
Held at the Farah store on Covent Garden's Earlham Street, the great and good of London's fashion crowd came out to wish him 'Happy Birthday'. Here's his scrapbook from the night. (He doesn't remember that much!)

Givenchy Gentlemen Only Casual Chic reviewThe latest in the line-up of Givenchy’s Gentlemen Only fragrances, Casual Chic remains true to the original accords of Gentlemen Only - sandalwood, cedar wood, birch leaf, but with the addition of three spices – cardamom, ginger and juniper.

TheChicGeek says “The modern man likes a trilogy, and 'Casual Chic' finishes this off nicely for Givenchy’s Gentleman Only series. This is a modern grown-up fragrance, which means it’s masculine, but easy.

I was a fan of the original Gentlemen Only, of course, I’m going to like ginger! I’m TheChicGeek afterall, but it gives it a green, fresh spiciness which is perfect as we enter the warmer months.”
