What’s the best thing about summer? Is it the longer days? The warm weather? The smell of freshly mown grass and BBQs? The list of summer benefits are endless… but here at B&M we can’t get enough of some of the most delicious summer cocktail recipes that are around at the moment!
We can’t put them all down here (seriously, we’ve tried loads), but here are some of the best refreshing cocktail recipes that Pinterest has to offer. Bottoms up!

Yes, it’s actually happened. Someone out there has had a stroke of genius and made prosecco mojitos and the result is a refreshing glass of absolute bliss. They’re really easy to make too, and are an amazing summer party tipple!
