Nothing taste’s better than that first sip of a gin cocktail on a sunny day, low in calories and with so many different alternatives it has become a national favourite.
With the added health benefits such as helping fight infections and disease, and easing digestion, there’s no doubt that gin is top of our cocktail list. Perfect as a summer spritzer or peppery and cutting when mixed with ginger, here are 5 summer gin cocktail recipes to test this year.
#1 St Clements
Oranges and lemons, sing the bells of St Clements. Beginning life as a mocktail, it wasn’t long before someone suggested adding a splash of Hendricks gin to make this the perfect summer tipple.
- 25ml Hendricks Gin
- 25ml Lemon Juice
- 75ml Bitter Lemon
- 100ml Fresh Orange Juice
- 1 Orange Wedge to Garnish
#2 Tanquerey No10 Martini
Summer drinks needn’t all be fruity and fresh, a dry martini is a perfect antidote to the summer heat, sipped quietly on a veranda somewhere warm and exotic.
- 50ml Tanquerey No TEB
- 10ML Dry Vermouth
- Pink Grapefruit or Lime to Garnish
