From a classic G&T to fruity gin ice lollies, here's how to up your game this summer.

Strawberry, mint and orange slice for garnish


Build in an ice-filled highball or large wine glass. Garnish with the strawberry, mint and orange slice.

Wild Card G&T

You can’t go wrong with a simple but delicious gin and tonic. Eden Mill’s Wildcard Gin is complemented beautifully by a good quality tonic and fresh fruit, especially berries and a citrus fruit, like a lemon.


50ml Eden Mill Wildcard Gin
Premium light tonic water
2-3 raspberries
1 strawberry, cut in half
Slice of lemon


Pour the gin into a highball glass, then fill with ice. Add the raspberries, then pour over the tonic water. 

Add the slice of lemon to garnish and finish by wedging the half strawberry on the rim of the glass.

Fruity G&T Ice Lollies

After trying these gin-infused lollies, you’ll never want a standard one again! Infused with Eden Mill’s Burgundy White Wine Cask Aged Gin, there’s refreshing flavours of lime, peach and raspberries to keep you cool all summer long.

Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus freezing time
Makes: 10


500ml tonic water
60g caster sugar
100ml Eden Mill Burgundy White Wine Cask Aged Gin
3 limes, 1 juiced and zested, 2 thinly sliced
1 peach, finely sliced
20 raspberries


Pour the tonic water into a large jug. Add the caster sugar and stir until fully dissolved and the tonic has lost its fizz. Stir in the gin, lime juice and zest.

 Push a couple of slices of peach and a slice of lime into each lolly mould, followed by a couple of raspberries. 

Divide the gin and tonic mixture between the moulds. 

Close the lids and push in the lolly sticks. 

Freeze until solid, preferably overnight. The lollies will last in the freezer for up to two months.
