As we are in the middle of summer and enjoying the weather as much we can can, here are our top 5 drinks we thought would be perfect for the summer sun! Most of you may know a few of these so let us know if we've picked the right ones..
Classic Mojito I mean who doesn’t love a good old mojito on a night out?
Traditionally, a Mojito is a cocktail that consists of five ingredients: White Rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water and mint. It's a great combination of sweetness, citrus and herbaceous mint flavors to compliment the rum, making the Mojito a popular summer drink.
Sangria not everyone’s favourite but when it’s nice and cold, it sure is a treat. Sangria is a type of punch, traditionally consisting of red (or white!) wine and chopped fruit, often complimented with other ingredients such as orange juice or brandy.
Mimosas are perfect for that girly meet up at lunch time. It’s a refreshing choice but can have you feeling a little too tipsy at noon! Definitely a great choice for those hot Summer days when you want a little alcoholic treat but still want to be able to head back to work with a clear head. Mimosas are made up of champagne and chilled citrus juice, usually orange juice unless otherwise specified.
Punch ( with or without alcohol) Punch is perfect for that BBQ on a Saturday or even that family birthday party on a Sunday. The term punch refers to a wide assortment of drinks, both non-alcoholic and alcoholic, generally containing fruit or fruit juice. Most party hosts tend to throw what ever alcoholic drink they can find in it to make a 'secret concoction' which brings the fun element to the mix! Just a fun fact; the drink was introduced from India to the United Kingdom in the early seventeenth century and you'll definitely spot a bowl of punch at any gathering you attend this Summer.
Ooo we love us a cheeky margarita! Just like the Mojito, it’s perfect for a night out or even during drinks with the girlfriends. Personally, I prefer it blended with ice for that Slushi feel.
A margarita consists of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice, often served with salt on the rim of the glass. The drink is served shaken with ice, blended with ice, or without ice, mmm!
These are just a few of my favourite Summer drinks. There are loads more amazing cocktails out there, both alcoholic and non alcoholic, which are perfect for these hot summer days we have been having, so let us know what yours are if they didn't quite make the cut.
Drink responsibly as always ladies and enjoy the rest of your summer!
