Today is World Cocktail Day, a worldwide celebration of cocktails, held on this date to mark the publication of the first definition of a cocktail back in 1806.

And with all the more reason to celebrate now outdoor hospitality is back, the rule of six for garden gatherings and only a few more days to go until you can be sipping your favourite cocktails inside your favourite bars, we’re celebrating together with two tasty Slingsby sharer cocktails.

These deliciously refreshing tipples are perfect for whipping up with your friends this evening in the garden, bringing you the taste of summer… even if it is a little grey out.

Slingsby Sangria

  • 100ml Slingsby London Dry Gin
  • 375ml white wine
  • 100ml ginger ale
  • 100ml cloudy apple juice
  • 100ml elderflower cordial
  • A drizzle of runny honey
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 1 green apple, cubed
  • Springs of mint to garnish

Method: Add all ingredients to a jug with cubed ice, pour into individual tumblers ensuring each glass receives a serving of fruit and garnish with a mint spring.

Rhubarb & Grapefruit Spritz

Method: Build in a pitcher or sharer jug, pour over ice into individual glasses and garnish with pink grapefruit wedges.

We hope you enjoy our latest recipes with your loved ones this week because after all… they taste even better together. And don’t forget to book your tables and support your local venues when the bars and restaurants open up next week – see you there!
