There’s no reason to miss out on cocktail hour even though you’re staying home. We’ve found a cocktail recipe suitable for all home mixologists (even first timers). What’s more, it’s just what you need on a hot summer evening: light, cooling and fruity. Oh, and it’s a little bit indulgent, too, which is just as it should be for a cocktail, we say.
You don’t need a host of bottles to create it, and there are just a few ingredients to shop for. It’ll take minutes to make cocktails for two, and then you can be out in the garden sipping as the sun goes down.
Find out how you can make this scrumptious summer cocktail below and visit our cocktail hub for more recipes and drinksware. As always, drink responsibly.
