7 summer cocktails perfect for parties

It’s the last week of the working year and we thought what better blog post to do than one featuring a list of the best summer cocktails for parties. The next two weeks are all about entertaining, indulging and having a good time… and a fabulous cocktail is a fantastic way to get any party started. 

So here it is, a list of our favourite summer cocktails for parties – links to recipes included.

1. White Sangria Sparkler

We LOVE Sangria – it’s fruity, refreshing and not at all a waste of good wine. We’re loving this recipe that adds a little sparkling too.

5. Lemon and Rosemary Gin & Tonic

We are quite partial to a G&T and this article shows how to jazz up the old fave with some summer flavours – our pick is the lemon and rosemary (perfect to pair with a Christmas roast).
