6 Sipsmith Gin Spritz Recipes To Sip This Summer

in Mixology May 8, 2022

Promising to serve up a ray of refreshing summer sunshine, these sparkling spritz recipes are picnic pleasers and the perfect accompaniment to an al fresco evening meal. 

Served in an ice-filled wine glass, these summer spritz recipes make for an eminently effervescent serve. Simply pop your prosecco, select your favourite Sipsmith gin – or non-alcoholic Sipsmith FreeGlider – and prepare to enjoy a long, refreshing cocktail. 

If you don’t have any sugar syrup in your home bar, you can whip up your own in a few minutes with our easy sugar syrup recipe.

1. LONDON DRY GIN SPRITZ

This sensationally sippable gin spritz recipe revolves around our award-winning London Dry Gin. We find this classic crowd-pleaser is best enjoyed with your feet up in the sunshine. You’ll need:
