With summer set to make a final hurrah in the UK this weekend, we’ve got a cool, fruity treat to mark the occasion. The Painted Lady was one of the first “girly” cocktails on the market and was favoured by the high-society women of the mid-20th century – though, of course, gender isn’t a prerequisite to enjoying this lovely little drink! This version is made with Greenall’s Gin, fresh lime and juicy passion fruit, with a little Campari for a bitter zing.
