It doesn't have to be sunny for us to enjoy a cocktail or two but it does help to add a bit of a holiday feeling to proceedings.
Whatever the weather, we have a trio of gin-based recipes that you can experiment with the next time you fancy a cocktail.
Simple and delicious, if you like a citrus kick check out The Kerry Lily. The mint-infused gin smash is a perfect drink for a hot day, while the Ferriter's Cove, with its raspberry purée and elderflower liqueur, tastes as good as it looks. Give them a try.
