Summer is the ideal time for a nice fruity cocktail to go alongside your barbecue, or just because it's sunny, so I thought today I would share with you a recipe for a new cocktail I have been working on. It's a lovely simple recipe and it tastes so good!
To make 1 litre, you will need:
*500ml Strawberry cider (In the picture above I used Old Mout strawberry and pomegranate, but I have also used Kopparberg strawberry and lime and Brothers strawberry cider and all have worked nicely.)*200ml White Zinfandel rose wine
*200ml Lemonade (you can add more or less lemonade to suit your taste and strength required)
Mix all the ingredients together in a jug or bowl, and refrigerate until ice cold. For best results, put your serving glasses in the freezer for about 20 minutes immediately prior to serving.
If you want to add ice and fruit, I prefer to add them to the serving glasses rather than the jug or bowl to stop the flavour being impaired. I like to use sliced strawberries and bananas and a slice of pineapple to decorate the glass, but you can use any you want to.
For a quirky touch if you are serving to guests, why not use fresh coconuts cut in two instead of glasses?
Let me know what you think!
