How to get a free gin and tonic in Annesley this week

Annesley's Badger Box is set to use a very unusual currency for a day - cake - in exchange for a gin and tonic.

Hungry Horse pub, the Badger Box on Derby Road is celebrating the introduction of Mrs Cuthbert’s traditional dessert-inspired gin liqueurs by offering a delicious flavoured gin and tonic for anyone who brings a slice of cake into pub on Wednesday, November 14.

Mrs Cuthberts Victoria Sponge Cake gin liqueur and tonic.

Sweet-toothed guests will be able to provide a range of baked treats to qualify for the giveaway, including traditional Victoria sponge, cupcakes, slices and cake bars.

The quirky offer has been announced to mark the launch of four new Mrs Cuthbert’s gin liqueur flavours at the pub. As well the quintessentially Victoria Sponge, the pub will also be offering Blueberry Muffin, Rhubarb and Custard Crumble, and a bespoke flavour exclusively produced for Greene King pubs, a Passionfruit Pavlova gin.

Dennis Gill, general manager at the Badger Box, said: “The trend for flavoured gins is huge at the moment, and what better way to enjoy iconic British flavours than with a free glass of dessert-inspired gin and tonic.

“Mrs Cuthbert’s dessert-infused gin liqueurs are inspired by 1940s home-baking, with fun and nostalgic flavours that make a refreshing alternative to traditional gin and tonic – we’re sure our guests will love them.

“We look forward to welcoming locals in for a mid-week treat they don’t have to pay for – it really is the icing on the cake.”

To redeem the unconventional offer, guests will have to visit the Badger Box pub on Wednesday, November 14, and show a slice of cake at the bar for a free Mrs Cuthbert’s Victoria Sponge Cake gin liqueur and tonic.

Any guests wanting to try another flavour can bring in a muffin, a crumble or a pavlova instead, in exchange for the corresponding flavoured gin and tonic.

There is one drink permitted per person and guests will need to be quick to get hold of one, as the offer is only available while stocks last. Terms and conditions apply, participating pubs only, promotion not available in Scotland.

The Badger Box is owned and managed by Greene King.
