Easy breezy Summer Cocktails to try at home

Dec 22, 2021 | News

We don’t like Summer. We love it! (Did we have you in the first half?)  

Gin is a versatile spirit that mixes with almost everything – if Gin was a person, it would make the perfect plus one to a wedding; chatting the ears off everyone and cutting fire moves on the D-floor.  

Anther Cherry Gin is one of the ultimate flankers to the original; a deep and luscious hue that belies a sensuality and depth of flavour. When it’s time for beach umbrellas and aircon, out come the summer cocktails. 

Here are five fab cocktails geared toward summer picnics and lazing about in the sun – created by our talented mixologists!
