LET THE GOOD TIMES
BE-GIN

What do you get if you cross London dry gin with English sparkling wine? The cocktail that’s British summertime in a bottle

I’ve got the craft gin bug. G&T with the standard ice-and-slice just doesn’t cut it: I want my gin in a spectrum of creative flavours, with ever-more inventive garnishes (right now it’s grapefruit and a sprig of rosemary). I’ve even got a taste for gin that changes colour. If you’re equally obsessed, don’t miss the cocktail of the summer: Ginking. New in stores, this prebatched drink is a blend of herbaceous London dry gin from Langley Distillery, citrussy English wine from Denbies winery, in Surrey, and a dash of sparkling water for extra fizz. Served in champagne flutes with a twist of orange zest, it’s the perfect way to pop the cork on your next summer celebration.
