This fresh and fragrant cocktail consists of versatile grapefruit which complements the botanical gin, floral and herbal vermouth, and Campari’s bitter orange notes.


  1.  1 ounce/ 30 ml fresh ruby red grapefruit juice
  2. 1.5 ounces / 45 ml gin (eg. Tanqueray Ten Gin, Monkey 47 Gin)
  3. 1 ounce/ 30 ml sweet vermouth (eg. Carpano Antica)
  4. 0.5 ounce/ 15 ml Campari
  5. Garnish: long, wide swath of grapefruit peel



  • Add fresh juice into a shaker
  • Add the gin, sweet vermouth and Campari to the shaker with ice, and shake until well-chilled
  • Place one large block of ice in a rocks glass and curl the grapefruit peel around the inside of the glass
  • Strain into the prepared glass



Aperol, bright orange apéritif. The brand describes the flavours as, “zesty orange with complex herbal scents harmonised with a touch of vanilla.”. Mixed with sparkly Italian Prosecco provides a perfect refreshment for hot summer days at sea.


  1. 2 ounces/ 60ml Aperol
  2. 3 ounces Prosecco/ 90ml –  We recommend choosing a dry (brut) Prosecco so the drink doesn’t turn out too syrupy or sweet (eg. Ca’ di Alte Prosecco Spumante Extra Dry)
  3. 1 ounce Soda water
  4. Slice of fresh orange – classic garnish for an Aperol Spritz.


This cocktail is unbelievably easy to make.

You’ll simply fill a wine glass with ice, then add Aperol, Prosecco, club soda and a slice of orange. Cheers!



Pimm’s cup cocktail is a true taste of summer. This fruity punch with lemonade, fresh mint leaves, cucumber, orange slices and strawberries will be a crowd favourite. 


  1. 6.5 ounces / 200ml Pimm’s No. 1
  2. 20 ounces/ 600ml lemonade
  3. Mint, sliced cucumber, sliced orange and strawberries



  • Fill a jug with ice and pour over the Pimm’s and lemonade
  • Give it a good stir then add the mint, cucumber and fruit



While the Margarita is widely renowned as one of the most beloved cocktails, when it comes to iconic tequila-based drinks, the Paloma stands out as a strong contender. This cocktail holds the title of Mexico’s national drink, adding an authentic touch.


  1. 2 ounces/ 60ml tequila –  Blanco tequila is the traditional choice ( eg. Casamigos Blanco Tequila) , but lightly aged Reposado also makes a fine drink ( eg. Patron Reposado Tequila)
  2. 1/2 ounce/ 15 ml lime juice, freshly squeezed
  3. 4 ounces/ 120ml Grapefruit soda, chilled, to top
  4. Pinch of salt
  5. Garnish: lime wheel



  • Add the tequila, lime juice, and pinch of salt to the glass, and fill with ice
  • Top with grapefruit soda, and stir briefly and gently to combine
  • Garnish with a lime wheel.

Hopefully, this will inspire your cocktails creations this summer season.
