There’s nothing better than fresh strawberries or raspberries with a splash of cream on a hot day! Nothing except a berry gin cocktail.
It’s that time of year when ripe strawberries and raspberries seem to be everywhere and while they make a great snack or dessert, they’re also something pretty special in drinks. Here’s our favourite:
Chill a martini glass.
Shake all the ingredients together over ice; reserving one spoonful of your chosen jam.
Add a little jam to the bottom of the chilled glass.
Strain the contents of the shaker into the chilled glass.
Garnish with a slice of melba toast or 2 slices of strawberry/raspberry as appropriate.
Once you have drunk the martini use the melba toast to scoop the delicious ginfused jam!
Tea and gin are two quintessentially British drinks, and despite neither actually originating in the UK they’ve both become required refreshment over here.
Anyone required to look after just one child will know the familiar feeling of fulfilment, joy, and very much needing a large gin and tonic.
