Mix up your drinks repertoire this summer with these summer cocktails that are a doddle to make. Tip: for the shaken ones, simply use a clean jam jar with a lid.
Apple & Elderflower Cooler
Shake 50ml (2fl oz) each of gin and cloudy apple juice and 15ml (1/2fl oz) elderflower cordial with ice. Strain into a tumblr over more ice.
Shake 50ml (2lf oz) vodka, 35ml (1/2fl oz) rose water and 25ml (1lf oz) lime juice with ice. Strain into a chilled Martini glass.
In a jug, mix ice, seven raspberries, one sliced lemon, one sliced lime, and 1/4 sliced cucumber. Pour in a bottle of rose wine and top with sparkling water. [This is my personal favourite!]
To make this Italian classic, put a scoop of lemon sorbet into a tumbler then top up with sparkling wine; finish with mint leaves and lemon zest.
How simple, quick and easy are these? I can't wait to make them for family and friends over the summer. Please remember drinking under the age of 18 is illegal, and please drink safely. I hope you all have a wonderful time making these and if you do try any, let me know what you think?
With love, Alisha Valerie. x
