Easy Cocktails

From snow to sunshine. That's just how we roll here in the UK. Not long ago we were out sledging and building snowmen. Now we're out buying shorts and sun screen ready for the summer. Grab it with both hands though as tomorrow it could be chucking it down!

Nothing screams Spring and Summer more than a cocktail. Well, cocktails are acceptable during any season but there's just something about summer that makes these drinks extra delicious. Maybe because they're a reminder of having the sand between your toes and sun on my face?

Anyway, whether you're planning a party, a BBQ or even just a night in, cocktails are always a wise choice. Not only do they look good but they taste even better and there's so many different ones to choose from.

This is one of my absolute favourites. It's fresh, fruity and just tastes of summer.

Watermelon Glory - This is one of Jamie Oliver's concoctions. It's the sweetest and freshest cocktail and goes down like juice. I haven't decided if that's a good thing or not but it's a taste sensation and easy to make which is always a winner in my eyes


You need:

2 shots of golden rum
400g watermelon
1-2 tbsp. vanilla syrup
1 handful of ice cubes

Simply blitz the rum, watermelon and 1 tablespoon of syrup with some ice cubes in a blender. Have a sip and add the remainder of the vanilla syrup if required, depending how sweet you want it. Pour it into a glass and serve with extra slices of watermelon on the side, if you like.

Taadaaa, you have a gorgeous cocktail ready to drink! Alternatively, if you want to experiment more, I highly recommend the cocktail starter set from The Cocktail Store. It comes with everything you need to start making delicious drinks and even has a book with lots of recipes for you to try.

I'd love to know your favourite summer drink?
