Long summer days, sat in the garden, watching the kids play, catching up with friends. BBq-ing for dinner {again] and enjoying the slower pace of life that summer often brings. Sounds perfect, right?! All you need is long, cold cocktail to sip through the afternoon! Hayman’s Gin has three delicious {and easy} summer cocktail recipes for you to try. Perfect for sipping in the garden, around the pool {or even in the bath!}. The first one is my favourite….

Hayman’s English Ruby Fizz

I N G R E D I E N T S
* 50ml Hayman’s London Dry Gin
* 20ml lime juice
* 10ml sugar syrup or Grenadine
* 4-8 fresh raspberries or raspberry syrup

* Lime wheel and fresh raspberries to garnish

M E T H O D

Fill a highball glass with plenty of large cubes of ice. Set aside the ginger ale and garnish, and combine all remaining ingredients in a shaker with the ice, shake well. Double strain into the highball allowing the liquid to run over the ice. Top with ginger ale and garnish with a lime wheel and raspberries

Add cubed ice to a cocktail shaker, pour the Hayman’s London Dry Gin over the ice. Add all the remaining ingredients, except the garnish.  Give all the ingredients a very hard shake and strain into cocktail glass, garnish with a sprig of lavender

I ‘veganised’ this by leaving out the egg white, and using agave instead of the honey…. still tasted amazing!

*50ml Hayman’s London Dry Gin

M E T H O D

Fill a highball glass with cracked or crushed ice and a few fresh mint leaves. Pour in the Hayman’s London Dry Gin and let it run down over the ice, add the lime juice and sugar syrup. Churn vigorously ensuring the ingredients are well mixed. Top with the tonic water or soda water and garnish with a mint sprig!
