There's a new GIN trend for summer and you're going to want to try it!

Now this sounds DELISH.

Yes, there is nothing we love more than sipping on a fruit bowl with some elderflower and gin in the mix, but as seasons are changing, so are the mixers and accompaniments we use.

Yes, it looks like there is a new trend set for summer, inspired by sport and TBH, we are ALL for trying something new once it involves gin (obvs).

So what is it you ask?

Well, according to Copeland Gin's founder Gareth Irvine, he thinks Wimbledon is going to cause a stir and see us taking inspo to try something new. He said:

“Wimbledon will be a key event this summer! The event has always had a strong association to fruity, fizzy drinks like Pimms but this year, gin will come to the forefront as part of the trend too. Pimms and gin work really well together and this combo is ideal for sharing pitchers and exploring new fruit garnishes.

“Simply take the classic Pimms No.1 cup and pour into a large jug, add your favourite gin along with oranges, cucumber and mint.”

Now that to me sounds DELISH.
