If you love a cheeky G&T like myself and the queen (has a couple a day apparently) than you’ll be stoked to hear THIS SATURDAY is World Gin Day (11th June). The perfect excuse to crack open a brand new bottle of Gin and pretend you’re Tom Cruise in ‘Cocktail’ minus the bar owner with a terrible Australian accent.

Let me introduce you to Citadelle Jardin d’été, it’s a new gin inspired by the stunning garden at Château de Bonbonnet (yep, that’s in France) and it taste like summer in a glass. Perfect to sip with your eyes closed, pretending you’re in the French country side and not sitting here in the middle of an “Arctic blast” – the technical term for “it’s really f***ing cold”. Check out the recipe below!
