Summer Cocktails with Extra Pizzazz!

Three red coloured cocktails with strawberries in the glass and lemons on the table behind.

Although a cocktail or two goes down nicely at any time of year, summer always sees sales soar and popularity boom. Warming up recipes for winter really sets the ‘Christmas’ scene however nothing quite says ‘summer’ like a refreshing cocktail in a warm, sunny garden.

The classics like Mojitos, Cosmopolitans and Daiquiris are steadfast items that never seem to go out of fashion however it’s always thrilling to see a new entry onto menu’s that can really liven up the summer party and provide a little something extra.

Here are three of our favourites!

Blueberry Lavender Mojito

Definitely one for the summer – refreshing, fragrant and relaxing!


1 ½ parts rum

1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice

1 ounce lavender syrup

8-10 mint leaves

10-12 blueberries

Pinch of ground Cardamom

Club soda


Muddle the mint leaves, lime juice, lavender syrup, blueberries, rum and pinch of Cardamom in a tall glass. Combine the flavours without over-muddling. Fill the glass with crushed ice and top with club soda. Give a quick stir and garnish with blueberries on a cocktail stick.

Frozen Spiked Strawberry Lemonade

Specially made for the adults!


1 cup ice

1 cup frozen strawberries

½ cup frozen pink lemonade concentrate

¼ cup rum


Put all of the ingredients in a blender and mix until a slush mixture is formed. Pour into a serving glass and garnish with a lemon wedge or strawberry.

Smoking Martini’s

Dramatize your drink for added effect!

30ml lime juice

30ml lemon juice

1 ½ tablespoons granulated sugar

Crushed ice
