Although it can be enjoyed all year round, there’s nothing quite like a grapefruit gin and tonic to put a smile on your face in summer.

At first, the thought of a bitter fruit infused in gin can seem a bit like Marmite, you either like it or you don’t.  However, believe us when we say that once you’ve had a taste of these, you’ll truly be in fruity heaven.

Here are our top picks…
