SIPSMITH LONDON CUP

A zesty and fresh gin perfect for summer party cocktails, Sipsmith London cup is one of my new favourites for a gin cocktail. It is similar to a Pimm’s or summer cup. It is strong at nearly 30% alcohol content so it definitely needs to be mixed with a mixer.

COCKTAIL GARNISH

You can garnish thisLondon Cup Lemonade Spritz with Orange slices and some crushed mint leaves.

PROSECCO

Adding a little prosecco to this pimped up G&T makes it 10 times better and the extra fizz is so tasty! You can make it into a garden party punch easily by just adding extra prosecco and some more lemonade.

LEMONADE

I use regular clear lemonade for this recipe but if you want to make it extra special try using cloudy lemonade. The finished drink will be cloudier and still be gorgeous.
