Gin mixed with tonic could be our favourite combination in the entire world.

But sometimes you want a little bit more out of your gin.

Something fruity. Something sweet. Something bitter.

Something involving other kinds of alcohol.

And that’s where the cocktail comes in.

1. Bramble — Drury Buildings

You just can’t go wrong with a bramble.

Gin and blackberries <3

2. Hendricks Highball — Canal Bank Cafe

At €13 it ain’t cheap, but it is a TOTAL delight.

Hendricks with elderflower and grapefruit. Yes.

3. Summer in Surrey — Chelsea Drugstore

€11.50 for Beefeater gin and Chateau De Breuil VSOP Calvados shaken together with homemade strawberry shrub and smokey black tea.
