Celebrate National Tea Day with three tea-infused Slingsby Gin cocktails

With today (21st April) being National Tea Day it’s only right that we celebrate one of Yorkshire’s favourite beverages. However, with the weather having been so glorious lately, it’s a prime opportunity to combine the taste of tea with another of Yorkshire’s most popular drinks: gin. We’ve therefore enlisted the help of Harrogate’s Slingsby Gin to come up with three tea-influenced cocktails. Enjoy!
