6 summer cocktail recipes you need to try

Summer is synonymous with cocktails so, whether it’s a beverage for one on a Friday night in or a summer party punch you’re after, here are 6 of our favourite recipes to try at home.

1. Rhubarb and Ginger Gin

Rhubarb, ginger, sugar and gin is literally all there is to this one. Drink it neat with some ice like it says to here or add your favourite tonic and you’re good to go!

2. Mojito Popsicles

Take your classic summer cocktail to the next level by turning it into a popsicle. This recipe has been designed for a mojito but you can turn whatever concoction you like into ice pop form.

3. Mint and Passionfruit Rum Punch

If sweet cocktails aren’t your thing, this one’s for you – it’s guaranteed to make your tabs laugh. It’s super easy to make too, no fancy garnishes or processes necessary.

4. Kiwi Caipirinha

OK, the taste is obviously the most important thing here but how cool does this kiwi caipirinha look? We’re also pretty sure it’ll count as one of your five a day – bonus!

5. Piña Colada

What would a summer cocktail roundup be without a coconut-filled Piña Colada? Nothing fancy about this one, just a classic taste of the Caribbean right here in Britain.

6. White Peach Sangria

Swap white wine for red, add white peaches, brandy and a selection of other delicious fruits and you’ve got yourself an interesting take on a Spanish summer essential.
