Strawberry & Rose Gin Fizz
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!
4 teaspoons of sugar
8 shots of gin
1 or 2 teaspoons rose water (to taste)
pinch of salt
soda water (to taste)
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 and enjoy!
