Now that the weather has finally taken a turn for the better (despite the volcanic ash in our atmosphere) we’re glad to be swapping our cosy nights in with a glass of red for a warm evening outside with a chilled rosé or white. We also like to enjoy a cocktail now and again and on a hot sunny evening there’s nothing quite like an ice cold cocktail to cool you down and chill you out.
We’re fans of;
- Long island iced tea
- French Martini
- Bellini (a cocktail with fizz!)
If you’re arranging a summer party or just having friends over, why not make it a cocktail night? You could get each guest to bring something different, a spirit or a mixer and either follow the recipes or have a go at making your own! Keep it simple and classy with the appropriate glasses for fuss free drinks or jazz yours up with some Del Boy style bendy straws, sparklers and sugar coated glass rims, just make sure you leave enough room in the glass for the drink! Prefer to keep a level head? Try a virgin cocktail; they’re just as tasty as an alcoholic one but without the fuzzy head in the morning. They also make a great drink for a summer party or just when you want to relax and enjoy the sunshine.
