Summer Cocktails to Enjoy in your Garden

Spring has well and truly arrived, garden socialising is back on the cards and our new Outdoor collection is launching today – three perfect reasons why it’s time to swot up on your summer cocktail recipes.

When the sun is shining and you have a welcoming garden to invite guests into, there’s nothing better than serving up a refreshing cocktail. We’ve shared three of our favourite recipes for the summer months below – including one which can be made virgin or boozy, dependent on your preference.

Get out your best cocktail glasses, stock up on ice and set up a home bar in your garden.
