Wine consultancy firm Litmus Wines has launched a pre-mixed drink that combines the botanical aromas of gin with English wine and spring water. 

Ginking is described as a low alcohol pre-mixed sparkling beverage. The company is aiming to appeal to Millennial "partygoers" as well as traditional "yet adventurous" gin drinkers. 

The drink was created by Litmus Wines founder John Worontschak. He said the recipe is based on pink pepper, star anise, juniper, cardamom and grapes.

Earlier this month, Pernod Ricard announced an infusions range for its Our/Vodka brand. One of the kits is called Our/Juniper and the company said it makes the vodka taste more like gin.
