2 Fresh Summer Cocktail Recipes With A Twist

Although it may seem criminal to mess with an already tried-and-tested recipe, adding a little something extra can take your cocktail to the next level.

Mad for margaritas? Well they can taste just as fabulous when you swap the lime juice for pomegranate or grapefruit juice. Addicted to mojitos? Swap your standard rum for a flavoured one (mango is particularly refreshing!). You’ll be amazed at what works – and if it doesn’t, you’ll have fun making them!

So if you’re feeling inspired to start getting creative with your summer cocktails, the lovely people at Tanqueray gin have given us a couple of their favourite cocktail recipes that you can try at home.
