With the sales of gin at an all –time high; 40 million bottles were purchased in Britain during 2016, outstripping the sales of both beer and sparkling wine.* I don’t think many of us need an excuse to knock back the G&T’s, but for those looking for a legit reason to indulge, then there is World Gin Day – Saturday 10th June.
To commemorate World Gin Day, try this G&Tea recipe from luxury hotel Sopwell House. This cocktail was created by expert mixologists who remixed the G&T by fusing tea with gin.
40ml Bathtub Gin
20ml Earl Grey Tea (cooled)
20ml Grapefruit Juice
Add the gin, cooled tea and grapefruit juice to a cocktail shaker. Shake and serve over ice in a highball glass.
Always remember to drink responsibly.
