3 Irresistible Cocktails for Your Next Summer Party

29 July 2019

With summer in full swing, we’d be surprised if you haven’t had at least one attempt at a BBQ (failed or otherwise!).
But whether the sun is shining or rain has stopped play, the warmer weather brings an urgent need for refreshment.

Which is why we’ve brought you our favourite drinks to cool you down at your summer soiree. With a dash of help from the guys at Schweppes!

Gin & Tonic

Some things are simply made for each other. Strawberries and cream. Fish and chips. Cheese and crackers. But the original? It has to be gin and tonic.

Don’t just settle for any old tonic, make it Schweppes Indian Tonic Water. Made using carefully selected lemons and oranges, gently peeled and pressed for their oils.

Keep it cool with this classic gin recipe.

B&M Top Tip: for any teetotal-ers, simply remove the alcohol from any of the recipes in our post for an equally refreshing mocktail! Or for a healthier alternative, why not try one of our Summer Smoothies?

Tonic Sunrise

Refreshing as the gin and tonic may be, you might be in the mood for something a little fruitier this summer. Whether the sun is shining on your garden party, or you’re huddled under the gazebo watching the rain extinguish the BBQ, this cocktail recipe won’t let you down.

Packed with fresh orange, grenadine, tequila and a good measure of Schweppes Slimline Indian Tonic, the Tonic Sunrise means you can enjoy your weekend guilt free (meaning more room for another sausage).

Keep the summer vibes going with this feel-good tonic water recipe.

Ruby Russchian

After something a bit more exotic? For those tastebuds always on the hunt for adventure, try the Ruby Russchian: a gin based drink served over ice in an old fashioned style tumbler.

All you need is your favourite gin, a couple of grapefruit slices, a sprig of rosemary and Schweppes Russchian Mixer. This intriguing mixer has a distinctive blush appearance, with flavours of berries, hibiscus and carrot.

Treat your tastebuds to something new – the full Ruby Russchian recipe is really easy!

B&M Top Tip: having a party this summer? There’s no end to the kinds of cocktails and mocktails you can make, and lots of them taste even better with Schweppes Lemonade 2L+50%. A must-have mixer!
