It is no secret that I love a good gin and tonic on a Friday night. Sitting outside watching the sun set and relaxing with a drink. Or standing in a kitchen, one child jabbering in one ear, whilst I stir something on the hob and try to stop the other child from eating a small picnics amount of food, before I have managed to serve up dinner.

Yup, sometimes meal times are stressful but on those days there is always gin 😉

Doesn’t that sound bad!

Let’s go back to enjoying these strawberry gin and tonics on the veranda as the sun sets. Much more in keeping, relaxing and picturesque!

But however you enjoy these I bet you’ll make them again. The strawberry pulls out all the sweetness in the gin, enhances the juniper flavours and then the black pepper enhances all the earthy notes in the gin.

It really is a different and unusual gin and tonic that will be a late summer favourite.

When I made these I couldn’t find the cocktail shaker! We are adding some extra cupboards and worktop spaces to our kitchen and everything is a bit all over the place at the moment (my glasses cabinet is in the middle of the living room!)

Not sure where the cocktail shaker is, so I improvised with a mason jar and lid. It worked fabulously and there was the added advantage that I could see how mushed the strawberries were getting!

Should have taken a shot of that jam jar, it was quite beautiful!

Right,I am off to get the boys ready for Mass and then tomorrow we are off out for lunch as my baby turns 7!!!!! Not sure where that time has gone.

Enjoy your gin and tonic xx[hr]
