Honey, White Peach and Lemon Sling
“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 Slings were originally made with rum, sugar and beer, until bitters came along to replace the beer.”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


  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ½ lemon
  • 60 ml white peach nectar (see note) (¼ cup)
  • 30 ml Plymouth gin
  • To serve: lemonade, chilled


  • 1
    In a shaker, add honey, 1 tsp hot water and lemon and muddle. Add peach nectar, gin, half-fill with ice and shake for 30 seconds or until shaker goes frosty.
  • 2
