The Gossip: Forget the Pimms while watching the tennis and liven up your drink with these two tipples:
How to make: Midori's Smashing Melons
Using: Midori, Melon Liqueur
This refreshing creation combines the fruity melon flavour of Midori, with crisp apple juice, zesty lemon and fresh mint leaves. It’s easy to make, served in a simple tumbler (although I went for an old school martini glass) and garnished with a crunchy slice of apple.
Pour over ice, garnish with an apple slice and enjoy!

This is a modern twist to the traditional whiskey sour, using Auchentoshan 12 Years Old Whiskey, making the iteration lighter and slightly sweeter.
The Sour Scotsman can be adapted to a Boston Sour with the addition of egg whites - giving the cocktail a frothy head and smoother finish.
This can be served in a small tumbler.
Step 1: Shake the ingredients with ice, and strain
