Summer BBQ Beverages
Now that the summer is here and the BBQ has been dusted off, we’ve been thinking about what to drink and have come up with these refreshing ideas.
This is a grown-up summer drink with a pleasantly bitter bite and can be drunk on its own or you can add vodka or rum if you wish! Very refreshing and can be made up to two days in advance.
Try this super quick and healthy spritzer from James Martin. Just mix orange juice and cranberry juice in a large jug, then slowly add sparkling elderflower drink and mix! Serve with ice for a long, refreshing drink.
Blend together fresh strawberries and pineapple, apple and orange juices, then mix with water and chill. When you’re ready to serve, just add soda water! What could be simpler?
If you prefer to buy in ready-made drinks, then look no further than Fentimans. With a wonderful range of soft drinks – from traditional Ginger Bear to classic Dandelion & Burdock – they have something to suit everyone’s taste.
For non-alcholic versions of popular cocktails, then check out the Alcohol-Free Shop, where you can find ready-made mocktails – all you need to do is add the ice!
