Top 5 Summer Essentials Drinks You Can’t Miss

Embrace the Heat

These are our top 5 summer essentials drinks, perfect for any occasion during the warm season. Remember, whether it's the tropical flavours of a Pina Colada, the zingy notes of a Moscow Mule or a classic Gin & Tonic, each drink brings its own unique charm to the table. So, this summer, kick back, relax, and let these classic drinks write your summer story for you. Cheers to the summer!

Pina Colada- The Tropical Delight

This summer holiday favourite gets a bad reputation as it has morphed from what was a harmonious blend of tropical flavours to a sometimes ‘made from mixer’ drink served in oversized glasses, blended to within an inch of its life. We suggest eschewing the blender in favour of a cocktail shaker and blend Bacardi with cream of coconut and pineapple juice. Don’t forget the lime to balance the sweetness of the pineapple.

Aperol Spritz - The Italian Sunset

Next on our list of summer essentials is a timeless Italian cocktail, the Aperol Spritz. Made with bittersweet Campari, this drink is as refreshing as an Italian breeze. It features the perfect balance of prosecco's effervescence and the unique bitter-sweet notes of Campari Aperol, offering a taste of la dolce vita at home.

Moscow Mule - The Zingy Cooler

Nothing says 'refreshing' quite like a Moscow Mule. Our version, featuring Tito's Vodka, adds a zesty edge to your summer days. The combination of ginger beer's spiciness and the clean, smooth finish of Tito's Vodka creates a cocktail that's as enjoyable as a cool breeze on a hot day.

Margarita - The Mexican Fiesta

Turn your summer party up a notch with a Margarita. Try using the earthy tones of El Jimador tequila, blended seamlessly with tangy lime and triple sec, creating a drink that's a celebration in a glass. It's the ultimate crowd-pleaser, perfect for those sun-soaked barbecues or chill beach days.

Grapefruit Gin & Tonic - The Classic Refresher gets a twist

Perfect for summertime parties or get-togethers, this Grapefruit Gin & Tonic recipe introduces a citrusy twist to a beloved classic. This iteration uses the zestiness of grapefruit to complement the botanical notes of gin, resulting in a refreshing and invigorating drink. If entertaining a crowd, why not make it in a pitcher? That way everyone can enjoy it without having to wait for individual serves to be made one at a time.
