How to make Gin Summer Cup: Open a 750ml bottle lightly flavoured gin and add the Spice Botanicals. Reseal, shake the bottle and leave in a cool place to infuse for 12 hours.
Reopen the bottle, and add the herb Botanicals. Reseal, shake the bottle, and leave in a cool place to infuse for another 12 hours.
Add the tea Botanicals, shake and leave to infuse for 12 hours.
Take a large mixing bowl or jug and strain the unfiltered gin into this using a kitchen sieve. Discard the botanicals. Now place a muslin square over the sieve and refilter the gin to remove the remaining botanicals. You should now have a honey-coloured gin. Pour into a bottle and seal.
