Strawberries are in season which means it’s truly summer and that means drinking gin in the sunshine. We’ve decided to combine the two and put together a strawberry gin recipe.
Fresh strawberries will work best in this recipe so if you are lucky enough to have some in your garden or are close to a strawberry picking farm the end result will feel even more personal.
You’ll want a London Dry gin in a strawberry gin recipe. This way the gin is distilled with the botanicals to give its distinctive flavour.
