  1. Summer is here, the pubs are opening again and we are definitely ready to get social (in a socially distanced way of course!). These 5 summer gin cockatils are perfect for getting the garden party started in 2020, and we can personally vouch that each of these will give you that refreshing "ahhhh" moment from the very fist sip!

    1. The Worsley Berry Smash

    Summer Gin Cocktails

    Ingredients:

    50 ml Worsley Gin

    15ml Bols Strawberry Liqueeur

    10ml Lemon Juice

    Handful of Strawberries

    Soda Water 

    Ice

    Mint to Garnish

     

    Method

    Using a muddler (or if you dont have a muddler the back of a spoon does the trick) give a couple of the strawberries a bruising to unlock their flavour and colour. Add the smushed strawberries to a long glass filled with ice and then pour over the Worsley. Add the lemon juice and strawberry liqueur and give a strong stir. Top up with soda and garnish with the remaining strawberries and mint. This recipe is perfect for sitting in the garden on a summers evening!
