There are a lot of national days that Domestic Sluttery tends to ignore. National vanilla ice cream day? National watercress week? Nope. They're not floating our boat at all. World Gin Day? Yep. We want that kind of action in our faces and all over our weekend.
World Gin Day is Saturday 9th June and it's the brainchild of the always wonderful and dashing Neil of Yet Another Gin. There could not be a better excuse for your hangover. There are gin events going on all over the world, as well as freebies and prizes on the main website. We're so onboard with gin day that we've planned our entire weekend around it (frankly, you'd expect nothing less). There will be cocktails, and there will probably be a collective Domestic Sluttery hangover like no other. If we're not careful, there might also be a puddle of mascara on our computer keyboards on Monday morning.
It seems only right that we celebrate this fine occasion by giving you guys the chance to win a bottle of the good stuff. We've had a rummage in our booze cabinets and we're giving away a bottle of Beefeater gin to one of you. It's such a classic drink, you can mix it with anything or it'll make the perfect gin 'n' tonic.
So how do you win? Just leave a comment below telling us what your favourite gin cocktail is. Are you a fan of the aviation, or would you rather a French 75? Maybe you just like a classic gin martini. Maybe you (gasp!) don't even like gin at all*. Have a look through our gin archive for a little inspiration. Maybe even make a couple of drinks tonight, just to make sure you've decided on a favourite.
The competition closes on Saturday June 9th at midnight, but we'll probably be drunk by then so you'll have to wait until next Monday to find out who won. You must be over the legal drinking age to enter, and you can only enter once. If you cheat, we won't share our booze with you again. Make sure your entry isn't Anon - you can't claim your prize if you're anon. You can have a gander at the rest of the Ts & Cs on the WGD website. Or, just read about all of the events and get excited.
Good luck everyone! Enjoy World Gin Day
*You can totally still enter, we'll just eye with suspicion.
