    Now, there’s something for anyone who loves the iconic combination of chocolate and orange.

    Enter: the Jaffa Cake Gin.

    Yes, you read that correctly. The popular sweet treat has been transformed from snack time bites to an adult beverage.

    Distilled with oranges, fresh orange peel, cocoa powder and actual Jaffa Cakes, it comes in a bright bold bottle. It promises a ‘full-on Jaffa cake tastiness built around a distinctive base of crisp juniper’ – perfect all those who have a sweet tooth and love a gin tipple.

    It has a zingy orange marmalade-esque flavour with rich and earthy chocolate undertones. It also boasts hints of vanilla-with a sprinkling of almondy-goodness, balancing the iconic Jaffa Cake taste with the piney juniper tang.

    Master of Malt is currently selling the Jaffa Cake gin for £27.95.

    It is also available as part of a Jaffa Cake Negroni Cocktail Bundle to create delicious cocktails at home.

    Here’s the recipe for the extra tasty tipple:

    Ingredients

    25ml Jaffa Cake Gin

    25ml Campari

    25ml Martini Rosso sweet vermouth

    Method

    Add ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and give a good shake. Strain into an ice-filled tumbler. Garnish with an orange peel or, for an indulgent extra, a Jaffa cake on the edge of your glass like a citrus wheel.

    Enjoy!
