Friday Five // Summer Cocktails


Who doesn’t love a cool refreshing drink in the summer? Here’s a list of five beautifully cooling summer cocktails to try!

Summer Sangria 

Replace red wine with white and lemonade with cava and you’ve got a super strong cocktail! Chop up cucumber, grapes and mint and throw in for a really refreshing taste!

Gin & Elderflower Presse

Does what it says on the tin really, and you can substitute Gin for Vodka if that’s more your tipple!


My personal favourite (all year round!) Add White Rum to soda water, add a dash of sugar syrup, and a half measure of lime juice. Add lots of mint sprigs and enjoy!


Gently heat Sugar water, add a few sprigs of fresh thyme, a measure of Vodka then add in 3 or 4 strawberries cut in half. Mix it, let cool and enjoy!

Blushing Betty

Pink grapefruit juice, Bourbon and sugar syrup. Garnish with grapefruit and enjoy! This is really good as an alcoholic ice lolly!


Remember to drink responsibly, but do please let us know your favourite cocktail in the comments below!
