3 Delish Gin Cocktail Recipes With a Lemony Twist For Your Summer Parties

For some reason, while everyone else in lockdown decided to bake banana bread, I started trying to build up an adult grog collection so I could impress people with fancy cocktails. I say adult because I think when I own a bar cart I’ll finally feel grown up. Don’t ask me to explain this logic.

So when I was given the new Gordon’s Sicilian Lemon Gin to try I wasn’t about to say no. Being a huge fan of the classic G&T (don’t even judge me, your grandma was right, it’s a fab drink), I tried it and a basic bitch twist on a bramble and the lemon actually makes it pretty perfect for summer, IMO.

Now I’ve got those two recipes, plus I asked Gordon’s for one more to share, just for your weekend (let’s hope it stays sunny now). Just just the ingredients together and top off with ice and a lemon wedge.

Bramble (my very DIY version)
