Get set for a perfect weekend. Everybody knows the essential step for an epic weekend is to settle down on a Friday evening and enjoy some classic drinks. Here are some of our favourite gin-based cocktails for you to enjoy.

If you fancy trying something new, we recommend Bulldog Gin (£22, Waitrose). With its distinctive flavour and delicious taste, it has been quietly causing a stir on the gin scene with its British attitude, but you can use any gin for these delicious cocktails.
