When the sun is shining, the strawberries are ripe and tennis season is upon us, our delicious Gin Fizz, inspired by Wimbledon, is the perfect tipple to sit back, relax and let the games begin!

INGREDIENTS

300g strawberries
4 teaspoons of sugar
8 shots of gin
1 or 2 teaspoons rose water (to taste)
1 lime
pinch of salt
soda water (to taste)
ice cubes

METHOD

Wash and hull the strawberries, before dicing into small pieces and adding them to a large jug

Sprinkle in the sugar, and squeeze half a lime over the top

Let this sit for five minutes, then muddle the strawberries with a wooden spoon to release their juices

Add the gin, rose water, pinch of salt and some crushed ice to the strawberries and mix well

Top up with soda water, and stir gently

Run a slice of lime around the rim of each glass, then dip into a bowl of sugar

Pour your gin fizz into the glasses and top off with a squeezed wedge of lime

Add sugar, lime (or more gin!) to taste
