well, it's officially summer! which means festivals, summer parties, and BBQ's and maybe even a summer romance is on the menu for you? For me my favorite part of the summer and all the lovely hot weather is enjoying a perfect ice cold cocktail to sip away at while the sun shines down on my very pale skin. Oh how I need a tan! However, hwy not enjoy some of my favorite cocktails too while your enjoying a good old rest as half of the year is already gone!

The Mojito

  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • a good squeeze of lime or lemon juice
  • a handful of mint sprigs, (don't cut off the stalks as these containessential oils vital for the flavour of the drink)
  • ice
  • soda water, to serve
  • 50ml white rum
  • a dash of Angostura bitters
  • lime slices, to serve

I love a good Mojito, Mojito is that perfect refreshing drink. However it is a bit like marmite so some people may love it others will spit it right out! 

Driver's Punch

  • 100g cranberries
  • 100ml/3½fl oz cranberry juice
  • 500ml blood orange juice (Sanguinello)
  • juice of 1 lime
  • thin wedges of lime
  • thin wedges of orange
  • mint sprigs
  • 600ml Appletise, sparkling apple juice drink
