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!

Ingredients:

50 ml Worsley Gin

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!

Method

In a glass add the ice and tear the mint springs with a sprinkle of brown sugar into the glass. If you have a muddler then give it a muddle, if you don't have a muddler then give it a stir with a spoon so that the mint and sugar is distributed throughout the glass. Add the liquid ingredients and garnish with some fresh basil. If you want to make this extra boozy then why not substitute the soda water for Cava or Prosecco?
