Gordon Gracious Deary Me… Let’s WIN some GIN!

Gordon's Gin

It’s a happy day when someone sends me something food or drink-related to play with. It’s far preferable to those depressing brown envelopes with windows that usually fill the mailbox. So it is that I am the grateful recipient of a Friday with Gordon’s pack, comprising an adult-size bottle of Gordon’s gin, 6 smart highball glasses with Gordon’s logo marked ever so discreetly on their sides and a cookbook by the F-Word man himself, Gordon Ramsay.

So to what did I owe this gin-tastic pleasure? The Telegraph is promoting its new Friday supplement, The Friday, sponsored by none other than Gordon’s itself. The Friday is filled with great ideas for how to get the most out of those two precious days we call The Weekend, from cocktail recipes (naturellement) to themed takeaway ideas, relaxation tips and that useful tool – a countdown clock telling you exactly how many days, hours and minutes you have to wait for the next weekend.

Well, I’m having fun thinking up all sorts of wicked things to do with my Gordon’s tonight, but in the meantime, we have an Epic début in the shape of a competition. That’s right, G&T lovers, if you would like to win a Friday With Gordon’s pack with which to kick on your very own gin-themed weekend, you may enter here. I’m sorry to say that I have to restrict entries to UK residents only for this one, and you must be over 18 to enter because those are the rules I’ve been given by the nice Gordon’s people.

So here’s what you do:

Tell me in any way, shape or form who is your ‘Gordon Gracious Me’?

(that means in a comment, haiku, photo, video or any other way that can appear on this blog. Points will be given for originality.)

You have until midnight on Friday 9th October to send me your entries. Then we’ll take a vote and send the winner their very own Friday With Gordon’s kit.

Viel Glück, PEEPS! Now, for a word from Mr Ramsay:

    I wasn’t sure where the catchphrase “Gordon Gracious Me” came from, so I “binged” it … that looks like a former binge … and the only reference that came up was from your blog!

    I know I’m as ineligible as the other 6 billion people on the planet to enter this contest, but I’ll give it a go:

    “Flash Gordon is Smashed Gordon now!”

    “Gordon Howe can take a hockey puck on the gin”

    “This place has been Gordoned off for your own protection.”

    “Chicken Gordon Blue!”

    “Thor Hyderdal! Thordon’s Gin is more of an adventure!”

    Hey Ross,
    Gordon Gracious Me is like Goodness Gracious Me. Do what you will with it. And I see that you have! I love what you’ve done with this. You’re so clever with words! Watch this space in case Gordon’s needs a Japanese contact…

    Thank God, you’re back. Grateful to Gordon, I call it. A new contest, perhaps?

      Hi Pat – yep. It’s been another uphill month but luckily this weekend is affording me some R&R. Another post ready to go – this time Mexican food in London. Hope all’s well in Boston!
