THESE tipples will put you in high spirits.

Thanks to our growing cocktail culture, seven out of 10 regularly mix cocktails at home and the average Brit has a 'drinks cabinet' worth more than £200.

A study carried out at the peak of the G&T season by premium tonic and mixer specialists Franklin & Sons found the nation's monthly drinks bill tops £113 per household, with gin, whisky, vodka and rum at the top of the nation's list of favourite spirits.

Yet poor choices in how we prepare our drinks (such as warm, flat mixers and not enough ice) could be spoiling our overall enjoyment.

Here's how to build the best cocktail camp and create a grander taste sensation...
