A taste of summer
Hosting at home
Simple serves for your summer soirées
We all know that feeling when it’s hot outside, the good vibes are flowing and there’s a sense of celebration in the air. No one wants to be inside for long, slaving over complicated cocktails. That’s why we’ve put together some simple summer serves, so that you can focus on making memories to last...
Add a twist of summer
Nothing says summer is here quite like the smell of a BBQ, garden parties and sipping on cocktails with friends. As we approach the first restriction-free summer in 2 years, raise a glass to hosting at home with Instagram-worthy cocktails that are big in flavour and bold in taste. Upgrade the classically refreshing G&T with a summery twist, using the Tanqueray Sevilla Orange for an instant taste of summer. All flavour, no fuss.
Minimum effort, maximum wow
Garnishes bring supporting flavours to any drink. Here are our top simple garnish hacks:
Mix your cocktails with peach slices and some edible flowers if you're after something fruity.
Keep things personal with a garnish selection and let your guests pick n mix the garnishes themselves.
How about a simple ice cube hack that never fails to impress – all you have to do is put a little bit of fruit in the ice cube tray before you freeze it, and voila! – your serve is now all anyone can talk about.
Cocktail & food pairing
“Citrus gin cocktails pair well with olives, seafood, flatbreads, dips and grilled chicken. A classic carbonara and a T10 cocktail are made for each other.”
Diageo Reserve Head Chef in Residence
Sweet. Delicious. Easy to make.
The ultimate summer cocktail? A strawberry Daiquiri! Which is why every drinks cupboard (or cabinet) should include a nice bottle of rum. The strawberry daiquiri recipe is easy to make and serve. Now all you need are the ingredients.
