Welsh Summer Cooler
A tasty and refreshing summer drink to cool you down on your Welsh adventures. To make your own Welsh Summer Cooler, you will need some Earl Grey Tea and our Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin. Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin is a contemporary everyday drinking gin with tastes of juniper, cassia bark and orris root on the palette.
First, brew the Earl Grey Tea and let it cool for an hour. Next pour 300ml cooled tea, 50ml Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin, and ice into a shaker. Give it a good shake until the outside is unbearably cold. Then strain it into a rock glass or highball glass. Add a couple of blocks of ice and top up with lemonade. Garnish with thin cucumber slices, a lemon wedge, 2 halved strawberries, and a sprig of mint.
We recommend you make a big batch of the Earl Grey Tea and keep the leftovers in the fridge to make a second round. Yes, these summer gin cocktails are just that good! So plan ahead 🙂
