Come on summer! You can do it.

Its coming up to Strawberry season so this easy and tasty cocktail is a winner to make at home.

For one serving

  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar

  • 1 lime wedge

  • 3 fresh strawberries, 2 hulled and sliced and 1 reserved for garnish

  • A single or double gin depending on preferred taste

  • Soda water or Indian tonic

  • pink peppercorns, mint or basil would be great for added garnish and depending on what you can get hold of.


    In a glass, combine the sugar and a squeeze of juice from the lime wedge. You can use pre-made lime juice if you don't have fresh limes around the house.
    Muddle with the back of a spoon to dissolve the sugar. Add the sliced strawberries and lightly muddle.
    Fill the glass with ice and add the gin. Top with a splash of soda water or tonic and garnish with the last strawberry and a sprig of mint/ pink peppercorns or basil.
