Many of us will be celebrating with family and friends over the holiday period. In this post, The Pop Inn team share our favourite drinks for the summer season:
Kimberley – “While a sparkling red is my go-to on Christmas, I can’t resist a cheeky cocktail. For me, nothing says Summer like an Aperol Spritz. 2 parts Aperol, 3 parts prosecco, a splash of soda, plenty of ice and an orange wedge. It’s tangy, tasty and refreshing.”
Dan – “My favourite way to relax on a warm summer evening is with a Gin and Tonic with a splash of lime. It’s cool and refreshing, and the perfect drink to match relaxed conversation.”
Natasha - "Christmas Day for me is a jug of Pimms on a hot summers day by the beach. It’s tasty and refreshing and cools everyone down as we dig into our Christmas feast."
Cass – “An espresso martini is my perfect way to start Christmas Day. Like my start to every day, but better.
It’s four ingredients in a blender! I don’t really stick to the prescribed quantities, but if you must:
120g Kahlua (Mr Black is better but whatever is around)
120g espresso coffee
Blitz for 20 seconds and then strain over non-blitzed ice into four glasses. Or one. I go with one, because I really like coffee.”
Eldad – “Why not combine Wine and Gin, well… this is where Four Pillars have done the work for us - Bloody Shiraz Gin. I love this drink as it both refreshing and has a great taste!
Now, why spoil a great Gin with Tonic? I like mine with soda, here is the recipe:
45ml Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin
100ml Soda Water
Orange or lime for garnish”
