Over the next 10 days I will be sharing 10 gin cocktail recipes with you, all made with Double Dutch tonics from their Explorer pack – a mixed case of tonics so you never have to drink dull!

This first cocktail I have named the refreshing cooler, and it really is SO refreshing. Perfect for a sunny day and a BBQ.

I used a Sipsmith London Dry Gin in my cocktail. I love this gin as it is a great all rounder gin with its bold and smooth taste. Plus, this Paul Smith limited edition bottle is just so fancy it was screaming out for a photo opportunity!

The cucumber and watermelon tonic brings the natural sugars of the watermelon together with the freshness of the cucumber to create a light drink with a slightly sweet aroma and a fresh, cool scent.
