    Refreshing drink + memories of Oz= heaven!

  • Chris Ruffles says:

    A couple of sun softened peaches
    the juice of a lime
    lots of ice cubes

    If you wanted a livelier option a shot of rum probably wouldn’t be a bad idea.

    Lovely on a hot summers day.

  • Katie says:

    My own magical creation of double strength orange and mango Sainsbury’s squash (student here, so no snazzy prices), mixed with lemonade, a splash of vodka and a few tinned mandarins dropped in, yummy mcyummerson!

    Rose lemonade is a firm favourite here although I love homemade Mango smoothies, with a dash of passionfruit and lime.

  • trish says:

    strawberry, lime, kiwi and ginger with lemonade! (With ice)

    Its an odd but nice homemade drink, now let me try yours please, cos it sounds delish!!

  • Jebby says:

    If I’m really really honest then if its hot in the garden there’s nothing like a huge tub of ice filled with bottles of beer. Everyone as cold as the last. But for fruity drinks homemade still lemonade with loads of ice. And if your amongst friends a splash or two of vodka. Mmm mmm mmmmm

    My favourite fruity tipple is a glass of fresh orange juice with a touch of fresh lemon juice, a teaspoon of caster sugar t sweeten and then add some chilled Champagne or sparkling wine. If would like an added kick, its great with a tot of brandy.

  • Eilis Bond says:

    Normally my perfect summer drink is a big jug of Pimms, Lemonade and a splash of Pomegranate juice, with lots of fruit and cucumber.

    This summer however I am pregnant so have been enjoying Elderflower Pressee ice cold from the fridge, pints of sparkling water, with a splash of lemon juice and a handful of frozen berries and homemade lemonade made with the recipe my grandmother used to use to make it for my mum when she was pregnant…

    The juice of half a lemon and half a lime squeezed into a glass of iced water which is then stirred and topped with a sprig of mint. Totally refreshing and Zingy when it’s hot outside.
