To get involved you will need the following:-

1. A brand NEW Local bottle of gin. Please support a small local distillery with this and get something new, sealed and from your local area to use on the day.

2. MIXERS – This doesn’t have to be tonic but try anything you’d like

3. GARNISH – You may be stuck at home but think laterally, what’s in the cupboard and fruit bowl or even garden you can use!

4. Decent Ice – Critical bit
