Embrace the summer sun with a helping of our favourite, summer inspired, tipples. They’re the ideal antidote to chill out and relax in the lovely warmth. Sometimes it’s great to enjoy some home comforts, but that doesn’t mean you should hold back…
Why don’t you treat your family and friends to a perfect serve (or two), courtesy of our brand new helpful ‘how to’ videos. Make summer bliss with each sip!
We’ve brought back one of our favourite summer tipples. The amazingly refreshing, Italian classic, Aperol Spritz is perfect relaxing drink during the summer heat. Best served in a wine glass, filled half way with ice, then add a 50ml measure of Aperol liqueur, fill with Prosecco, and add a dash of soda. For the final touch, garnish with a wedge of fresh orange, and… serve!
Summer’s well and truly here, so why don’t you enjoy our delicious twist on the British summer classic — our very own Pimm’s Spritz! Not only is the Pimm’s Spritz superbly refreshing, it’s also very simple to make. Fill a glass halfway with ice, and add 50ml of Pimm’s, a few slices of cucumber, and top off the class with lemonade and sparkling wine. Garnish with a spring of fresh mint then it’s time to go outside and relax in the sun!
This is without a doubt one of our favourite drinks of the whole summer, and like the other two spritzes it’s simple to make, and even better to drink! Pink & Spritz is a delicious combination of Gordon’s Pink Gin, fresh strawberries and wine! Fill a glass ¾ full of ice, before adding 25ml of Gordon’s Pink Gin. Add in 3 or 4 strawberry halves then top off with lemonade and sparkling wine. It’s easy to make, and supremely enjoyable.
