Summer calls for all things sweet and colourful and gin is no exception.

With gorgeous fruits ripening it’s possible to make some fresh and vibrant cocktails in summer and a Strawberry & Lime Gin Smash is certainly in this category.

This recipe from Dunnet Bay Distillers, makers of Rock Rose Gin, has everything a summer cocktail could want – including a gin specifically inspired by summer.

Rock Rose Summer Edition Gin is distilled using botanicals such as lemon balm, lemon verbena and lemon thyme that help to create a herbal freshness with a hint of citrus.
