Summer Party Cocktail Recipes

Is there anything better than sipping on a cool refreshment on a warm summer day in your garden? Probably not! Instead of drinking your usual glass of wine or chilled beer, we have a few ideas on how you can spice things up this summer. Check out our suggestions below –

Tequila Sunrise

The perfect drink for a party, here is what you’ll need to get started.

  • 2 tsp Grenadine
  • Ice
  • 50ml Tequila
  • 1tsp Triple Sec
  • Orange Juice
  • Cocktail cherry

To get started, simply pour your grenadine into a cocktail glass and set aside. Then, in a cocktail shaker, pour your ice, tequila, triple sec and fruit juice. Once they are all inside, shake vigorously until the shaker is ice cold. Strain over top of the grenadine into your cocktail glass and garnish with the cherry.

Aperol Spritz

A common drink for a sunny Italian holiday, celebrate summer like you’re in Venice.

  • 50ml Aperol
  • Ice
  • Prosecco
  • Soda

Start by filling a wine glass with ice and pour your Aperol over top. Once that is done, pour in your prosecco and top up with soda if you’d like. Garnish with a slice of orange to finish and you’ve got yourself an easy, delicious cocktail.

Frosé

Great for drinking at a barbecue with family and friends, this tastes delicious on a scorching hot day.

  • 1 bottle of Rosé
  • 300g of strawberries
  • 50g of caster sugar
  • 1 lemon

Pour your rosé in to a roasting tin and stick in your freezer overnight.  Once frozen, mix your strawberries and sugar, then blend everything together in your blender with a squeeze of lemon. To serve, pour in to wine glasses or any cocktail glass for a frozen, refreshing treat.
