Nothing says summer to me like an ice cold gin and tonic in the sunshine. I enjoy a complicated summery cocktail as much as the next girl, but sometimes all you really yearn for is a good ol' G&T.
A couple of weeks ago I went along to a gin master class with Sipsmith at the newly revamped Bury Court to learn more about my favourite tipple (you can read about that rather boozy night out here). But what I didn't know was that Sipsmith were planning a very exciting new summer launch....A GIN FLAVOURED ICE CREAM.
I love ice cream. I love gin. I particularly love Sipsmith gin.
Could this be the best thing that has ever happened?!
In the interest of 'research' I have eaten three tubs of the stuff to ensure it lives up to the high hopes you'd naturally have for such a brilliant concoction. And the good news is that it's DELICIOUS. Dreamy, ice creamy and delightful.
Jude's Ice Cream is exceptionally tasty anyway (try their Salted Caramel flavour, it's *heaven*) but this new Sipsmith G&T flavour is something to behold.
You can get your hands on a tub exclusively at Selfridges from the 20th May and online at Ocado from the 1st June.
YES. YES. YES.
