Honey, White Peach and Lemon Sling

Ben Dearnley

“Gin and peaches are good mates, as are honey and lemons, so this drink is a little bit like four old friends having a civilised giggle. Slings were originally made with rum, sugar and beer, until bitters came along to replace the beer.” – Jason Crawley

2.Strain into a highball glass filled with shards of ice, top with lemonade and serve.
