We’ve selected 5 delicious Summer Gin Mixers from the Franklin & Sons drinks range that will be the perfect addition to your drinks cabinet this summer.
1. Sicilian Lemon Tonic Water
Bursting with citrusy goodness, this lovely mixer is blended with Sicilian lemons, sparkling water, natural botanical flavours and cinchona bark extract.
Serving suggestion: Best served with berry-infused gins. We love ours paired with Sipsmith Sloe Gin.
2. Original Mallorcan Tonic Water
Take yourself to the Mediterranean with this refreshing mixer created with Mallorcan citrus, sparkling water, natural botanicals, Mediterranean flavours and cinchona bark extract.
Serving suggestion: Best served with citrus-heavy gins. We think it pairs beautifully with Malfy Con Arancia Gin.
3. Guava & Lime Soda
Offering an exotic blend of natural guava and Tahitian lime with a hint of ginger, this delightful light mixer is the perfect drink for a warm summer’s day.
Serving suggestion: The guava and lime flavours of this mixer blend perfectly with a crisp, juniper forward gin. No 3 London Dry Gin is a lovely match.
4. Pink Grapefruit Soda
Their new Pink Grapefruit Soda is blended with pink grapefruit, lime juices and sparkling water. Offering a bright and balanced flavour with bitter notes.
Serving suggestion: We like to pair this mixer with floral flavoured gins, such as Silent Pool Gin or Bloom London Dry Gin.
5. Natural Rose Lemonade
The recipe for this mixer is a floral twist on their 1886 Original Lemonade, featuring English rose petals, lemon juice and sparkling water.
Serving suggestion: It makes a great addition to summery cocktails. Mix 50ml of Gin with 50ml of Natural Rose Lemonade and top it with sparkling Rosé Moscato for a delicious twist on the classic Tom Collins.
