Summer Cocktail Coolers
Keeping your cool with our favourite summer cocktails.
With the beautiful weather, we are keeping cool with summer cocktails. If you fancy trying our four favourite sunshine cocktails, follow the incredibly simple to make (and even easier to drink) recipes below.....
FROZEN STRAWBERRY MARGARITA
We always like to celebrate the start of Summer with a Frozen Strawberry Margarita. The beautiful fruity hit of our Wild Strawberry Liqueur is fired up in this cocktail with citrus and tequila. It's also superbly refreshing thanks to handfuls of crushed ice.
*50ml Wild Strawberry Liqueur*
*25 ml Blood Orange Liqueur*
*Juice of a Lime*
*Juice of a Lemon*
Fill a glass with crushed ice and pour over all the ingredients
The Maiden's Prayer is sunshine in a glass. With a splash of orange juice, surely it's also a little virtuous?
*50ml Sloe Gin*
*50ml Blood Orange Liqueur*
*25 ml Orange Juice*
Shake all ingredients together and strain into a chilled martini glass
The Damson Breeze has been a favourite summer cocktail at Wiltshire Liqueur HQ for years now. As it works well made in huge jugs, pitchers or cocktail dispensers, this always sneaks a visit at sunny family barbeques.
Quantities for a jug
*50ml Damson Vodka*
*150ml grapefruit Juice*
*150ml Cranberry Juice*
Pour all ingredients into a large jug topped up with ice and serve with a wedge of lime
This deliciously, refreshing summer cocktail always makes us dream of beach holidays in the sun and warm Mediterranean evenings.
*1 part Sloe Gin*
*2.5 parts soda water*
*1 teaspoon brown sugar*
*10 large basil leaves*
*4 lime wedges*
Mash 9 of the basil leaves with the lime wedges and brown sugar and add to a tall glass filled with ice cubes. Pour over the Sloe Gin topped up with soda water and garnish with a basil leaf and wedge of lime.
