Summer cocktails: Fresh peach gin fizz recipe

The sun has finally started shining here in the UK and we all know what that means – time to take full advantage of the fruity summer cocktails. What screams “drinks in the sun” more than a fresh peach gin fizz?

Our version takes juicy, fresh peaches (in sliced and puréed form) and mixes them with lime, gin, tonic and a few springs of mint to create this gorgeous and refreshing cocktail – perfect for sharing at summer picnics with family or simply sunbathing in the back garden with friends.

In fact, you could even make a huge batch of this for a BBQ and serve it alongside some freshly grilled peaches – that would taste, as they say, just peachy. 

Fancy whipping a batch of these up for you and your amigos this weekend?
