Summertime Cocktails

Leave a comment

Hey All,

Jess wrote a post last week about her favourite refreshing drinks, but this week we thought we would let you know about some tasty summer cocktails that have a little bit of a KICK to it. Summer is nearly over, so why not spruce it up a bit before we have to wait another year for a nice summers day!

These cocktails are predominantly made with alcohol, but you can remove the alcohol and have it as a mocktail instead 🙂 .

As a student I think myself and other students can admit, we can go a bit heavy on the drinking, but please drink responsible and know your limits. You can even download an app that shows you how much units and Vol is in the alcohol you are drinking. Please see link attached: https://www.drinkaware.co.uk/

So here are my top three summer cocktails:

At number 3 is: Orange splash

This calls upon all us citrus lovers, it’s sweet and tangy and because it is made with fresh orange juice, it makes you feel healthy too 🙂

All you need is:

  1. Fresh orange juice
  2. Lime
  3. Cut up a few strawberry’s
  4. Vodka
  5. Cointreau

Then mix it all together 🙂

Number 2 is: Cuban

Ahh the good old Cuban, forget about British weather, Cuban is a little taste of the Caribbean.

All you need is:

  1. Lime
  2. Barcardi rum (Cheaper versions are okay)
  3. 6 whole mint leaves
  4. Ice
  5. Coca cola, I sometimes have lemonade J

The mix it all together 🙂

Number 1: My all-time favourite (The classic) “Pimms”

  1. Pimms (depending on how strong you want it, use a shot class)
  2. 2 shots of Pimms
  3. Chopped strawberry pieces
  4. Chopped cucumber pieces
  5. Orange slices
  6. Mint leaves
  7. Lemonade

Then mix all together 🙂

Why not Try the elderflower pimms as well, it is sweet, perfect for summer and is great for social gatherings and BBQ’s.

Enjoy! But remember drink responsibly and be safe!
