This is a beautifully refreshing and invigorating drink. You can also leave the gin out and make this non-alcoholic. Taste as you go – you might decide that you would like the tea to be stronger and more bitter or less bitter. Simply add more tea or brew for longer. For a sweeter finish, feel free to add more honey.

2 teaspoons of honey
2 lemons, sliced

Slice the lemons and add to a jug with the gin (or into 2 separate glasses) and leave to infuse for 10 minutes or however long it takes for the teat to cool
