Scroll through to see her top seriously delicious gin sippers.
The Classic G&T
It's the starting point of the Gin journey. The first steps into the world of gin. Perfectly balanced with bitter quinine from the tonic, a Gin and Tonic is the most sophisticated spirit mixer in the world. Did you know the first drink to be consumed in the white house to mark the end of prohibition in America is said to be a Tanqueray and tonic?
Although this drink is 100 years old, the Negroni has had a recent rise to fame, making its way to the top of the list of everyone’s favourite cocktail. It came in second place on The World's Best-Selling Classic Cocktails 2021 list - a position it has secured for seven years straight. Negroni – the drink itself is actually just over 100 years old so I think we need to make it clearer that the drink itself is older but has become a recent favourite of the consumer not just the bartender.
Make it with GORDON'S LONDON DRY
A drink that used to be gin and roses lime cordial has turned into a category of its own now, with bartenders using fresh fruits to create any flavoured cordial to either shake or stir up with gin. Simple yet oh-so-delicious, this classic cocktail is a great drink if you want to ease yourself into Martinis.

The Clover Club
The fruitiest of drinks in this selection, the Clover Club is an impeccable drink to enjoy. Dry yet zesty with beautiful foam, thanks to the egg white topping. This cocktail is the perfect combination of pretty visual appeal and delightful texture.
The Ramos Gin Fizz
And we've saved the best to last because it's an absolute showstopper of a cocktail. Essentially a creamy version of the Tom Collins, the Ramos Gin Fizz does take a while to make as the key is in a long hard shake! For that reason, this is probably more suited for more intimate celebrations where time isn't so precious.
