If like us, you can't face another pitcher of sickly sweet Pimms for 20 QUID (like reeally), then this is the drink to see you through the summer. Best thing about it? It's cheap, delicious and you can make it at home easily. So let Beefeater Gin and Sebastian Hamilton-Mudge, International Brand Ambassador for Beefeater, show you how to make your new favourite cocktail for this coming summer...

It's a little known fact that it's been scientifically proven that gin is the best spirit for cocktail making - just kidding, you don't need science to know that. So we spoke to Sebastian to get his answer to your summer cocktail cravings using the brilliant, Beefeater Gin.

With its distinct dry taste and age old London heritage, Beefeater Gin seemed like the most obvious choice for us. Plus, when its unique blend of botanicals is mixed with these ​refreshing ingredients (cucumber, lime and basil) it makes a crisp, invigorating and totally unique cocktail perfect for alfresco drinking.

So...ready to be wowed?

What you need:

- 1/7th cucumber
- 20ml lime juice
- 2 large basil leaves
- 15 ml sugar syrup (3 tsp of caster sugar dissolved in water)
- 4-6 ice cubes
- Sea salt, black pepper and basil leaf to garnish
- Serve with Beefeater Dry
