The hot summer months of June and July see the arrival of bundles of beautiful crimson cherries on our shop shelves. The cherry season is short, so make the most of it with this juicy, sweet-sharp gin and tonic - it’s a fabulous alternative to your everyday G&T.
Cherry Gin & Tonic
Handful of ripe sweet cherries
90ml tonic (or to taste)
Remove the stones from the cherries then put them in a bowl or mixing glass and muddle them lightly. Add lots of ice to to your glass along with the muddled cherries, gin, tonic and a few good squeezes of juice from the lime (adjust according to how tart you like your G&T). Stir gently for a minute or two, until the juice from the cherries has mingled well with the gin/tonic mixture and the drink is chilled. (You could also put all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake before adding to your drinking glass.)
Add a cherry on a stick or a slice of lime to garnish and serve.
