Al-Fresco Drinks

We are now coming into the summer period when temperatures are at their most favorable, and outdoor dining is becoming a popular option for a dinner party or hosting a gathering of friends. I have put together a list of my favorite Al-Fresco drinks, which are perfect for any occasion.

  1.  Citrus ice tea
    A refreshing option for an alternative to your traditional cup of tea. It’s an ideal accompaniment to a selection of sandwiches or cakes.
  2. Mojito
    A great way to start an evening, including fresh mint to enhance the flavour.
  3. Cosmopolitans
    A popular a classic cocktail, which looks as good as it tastes.
  4. Cucumber and elderflower spritzer
    A refreshing non-alcoholic option, ideal for re-hydrating
  5. Summer berry smoothie
    A healthy option packed with lots of fruit. Strawberries, blackberries and raspberries are all at their best during the summer months and add a real freshness to this drink.
  6. Traditional Pimms and lemonade
    A perfect pre-dinner option, perfect for special occasions
  7. Lychee Martini
    A lively martini with a hint of summer. A simple, but delicious drink with a hint of the exotic.
  8. Amaretto fizz
    Perfect for celebrating. For something a little fruitier than a simple glass of fizz, add a shot of amaretto and a 2 shots of orange juice to sparkling wine.
