With the Wimbledon final fast approaching and Henley round the corner here are a few summer drinks to keep things interesting for any BBQ or picnic. 

Pimms

Come rain or shine this drink is synonymous with British summer. A huge jug of the stuff filled with cucumber, strawberries, slices of oranges and lemons and loads of fresh mint what could be better, infact 1 in 5 British women think it’s the best accompaniment to a BBQ!

A beautiful pink fruity summer rose champagne from Nicolas Feuillatte, bursting with all the notes of summer berries. This is a real pleasure to drink. Available nationwide from John Lewis.

This is a real guilty pleasure of mine.  I especially like the original apple cider over ice all summer (and winter!). They have just added a new summer blend, a mix of apple and pear.

Crabbies Original Alcoholic Ginger Beer

If you’re not a fan of beer or cider, but love the idea of a refreshing ale-like beverage then this is the drink for you.

Crabbies use real steeped ginger all the way from the Far East, brewing it for over 8 weeks to give it its spicy flavour. Plus, you can serve it with vodka and lemon over ice and you’ve got yourself a Moscow Mule cocktail. Yes please!
