Mind the G A & P, skinny cocktails from Shaker

Don’t laugh but some of us are in abstinence mode this month. If you’re doing a detox-lite version, purely to atone for over consumption on the Christmas calorie front, try the slim-line GA & P Skinny Hi-ball with gin and Aperol (above), but if you’re going hardcore, perk up your tastebuds with these fruitilicious non-alcoholic versions, all created by the experts at Shaker Consultancy.
