A cocktail expert has revealed how we can all up our G&T game this summer

Gin and tonic recipes

Ready to welcome friends and family over for a back garden BBQ this summer (providing we will be at whatever level restrictions that this will be allowed, of course)?

I know I am so ready to sit out in the garden and sip cocktails with my friends – and so roll on balmy evenings and the end of lockdown.

As we are all collectively still obsessed with G&T’s, we recently hooked up with the experts at The Cocktail Service to pick their brains about how we can up our G&T game with some fun twists on the classic.

Here are three recipes we are definitively trying come those summer parties:
