Summer is the perfect time to cook and entertain in the garden, weather permitting of course! A Pedrino G&T is super easy to make yet has the quality taste of a high end cocktail. Exactly what you’ll want when hosting friends and family, especially as you can make this quality concoction in a matter of moments. All you’ll need is ice, Gin, Pedrino Spritz and a citrus garnish.
There are many types of wonderful gins out there, from London Dry to Floral, which is why we’ve worked with some of the very best mixologists and bartenders to find the perfect Pedrino Spritz pairings. Discover below our recommended cocktail combinations, along with tastings.
London Dry Gins
Although it has the capital city in its name, the popular spirit doesn’t actually have to be produced in that specific region. Whereas to name a product Champagne or Congac there is a limit to the geographical location of where it can be produced. What is important however, is that it follows a particular distilling process.
This process will of course include juniper berries as all Gins do, in addition this method of distilling could also include natural botanicals, such as: citrus peel, coriander or even liquorice (to name just a few). It’s these natural botanicals that combine to create an elevated taste when paired with Pedrino Sherry & Tonic Spritz. The all-natural spritzer is a combination of Sherry, made from Pedro Ximénez grapes and artisanal tonic water. This paired with a London Dry Gin offers an enchanting blend. A bittersweet taste with notes of orange blossom and stone fruits and of course the sparkling refreshment of a spritz. The perfect garnish for this style of G&T would be a fresh orange slice. Alternatively, if you’d like enhance your spritz G&T that little extra, then we also recommend garnishing with a slice of blood orange.

A citrusy Gin offers a wonderfully refreshing cocktail. This style of gin could conventionally be enhanced with: orange, lemon and even grapefruit blends. That said top brands have also explored using not as common citrus fruits used as well.
This really is a great choice of spirit as you’ll have a great time exploring a plethora of new cocktail combinations, especially mixing with a flavoured tonic giving your G&T that added sparkle.
Pair a citrusy Gin with Pedrino Ruby & Tonic Spritz and you’ll get an exciting taste on the palate amplified with the refreshing notes of artisanal tonic water. Pedrino Ruby is made with origin-protected fortified Port blended with a tonic made from British Spring Water. This combination married with a citrusy Gin offers a harmonious balance of aromas and flavours with notes of red berries and plum complemented with quality bittersweet notes of citrus gins. An excellent garnish choice for this combo is a lemon slice. A great early Summer evening aperitif.

If you like more subtle flavours in your G&T, the slightly milder blossom flavours of a Floral Gin may be more tempting. There’s something quite magical about the aroma of flowers in these types of Gins, especially the imaginative combinations out there: from apple & lavender to heather & hawthorn. There’s no stopping the inventiveness, Gin distillers are currently creating some excellent blends. This blossomy spirit is beautifully enriched when paired with the refreshing flavours of Pedrino Vermouth & Tonic Spritz. A combination of origin-protected Vermouth and tonic water enhanced with all-natural botanicals. In addition to the floral flavours of this particular type of gin, mixed with a Pedrino Vermouth Spritz you’ll enjoy notes of melon and grapefruit. A grapefruit slice is a great choice of garnish for this cocktail. If you’re having a boozy brunch, this G&T combo will go down a treat.
