Make Your Own Strawberry Gin with This Super Easy Recipe


strawberry gin recipe

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.

When it’s ready, strawberry gin will be perfect for summer cocktails but it’s also also sweet and tasty enough to drink neat over ice.
