The sun is now officially shining and we are all set for some serious sipping at Duck & Dry. And to celebrate the summer season, we've teamed up with our favourite distillers, Sipsmith.
Read on to learn fun ways of drinking summer-ready gin and tonics!
THE PERFECT GIN & TONIC
A Summer sipping staple: the perfect marriage of a traditional recipe and a truly traditional handcrafted process - London Dry gin made the way it used to be, the way it should be.
To build the perfect G&T fill a tall glass with as much ice as possible, add 50ml of Sipsmith London Dry gin (the gin cools as it runs over the ice), top with a chilled good quality tonic (like Fever-Tree) and garnish with a fresh wedge of unsqueezed lime to compliment all the flavours of the gin.
SIPSMITH SUMMER CUP
Where Summer meets Gin. Inspired by the house cups that were a staple of every London pub in the 1800s this is our London Dry gin rested with a host of summery ingredients including Lemon Verbena from Master Distiller Jared's garden, cucumber and Earl Grey tea.
Fill a wine glass with ice, add 35ml Summer Cup, top with lemonade and garnish with a slice of unsqueezed lemon, for a summer in a glass.
SIPSMITH GIN ALEXANDER
A truly simple and irresistible cocktail for Ice-Cream and Gin Lovers alike.
Add 40ml Sipsmith London Dry gin to one scoop of Jude's Gin and Tonic Ice-Cream. Shake until ice cream melts and your hands can stand the cold now more. Serve in a chilled coupe glass with a dash of grated nutmeg.
