long summer drinks & belvoir hamper giveaway!



Maybe it's just me, but warm weather makes me want to sit in the garden drinking cocktails all day. With this in mind, I've come up with three summery drinks using some Belvoir cordials that were kindly sent to me! You can also win a picnic hamper full of goodies...

• can you tell which is my favourite?! •



A little twist on a classic long drink..

• add a little Belvoir Elderflower Cordial to a glass with ice
• fill just over half way with white wine (Pinot Grigio is my wine of choice) 
• top up with soda water and garnish with some summer berries 

So easy peasy and delicious! My housemate Claire also recommends the elderflower cordial in cider!




Kind of, almost like a raspberry mojito...

• add a little Belvoir Raspberry & Lemon Cordial to a tall glass with ice
• pour in a shot or two of white rum, add a handful of raspberries (and a little torn up mint if you have it!) and give it a stir
• top up with soda water and garnish with a slice of lemon

My favourite of the three!




A slightly fancier version of my tipple of choice (G&T!)..

• add a little Belvoir Lime & Lemongrass Cordial to a cute glass with ice (this one is from Ikea!)
• chuck in a couple of shots of gin and some lime peel
• top up with tonic water and garnish with lemon and lime slices

Oh. Yum.





You could win this Belvoir hamper full of delicious treats! Just fill in the form below!

  24. It was sunny where I was living this morning on my way to work, and I got really excited about sitting out with a drink after I'd finished. Unfortunately I couldn't decide what to drink, and the sun was gone, but now I know what to try on my next sunny day off!

  32. I'm not very adventurous with summer drinks, usually sticking to a smoothie in the garden or a cheeky koppaberg whilst having a bbq in the park! These drinks look amazing though and are all so easy to make! Definitely a good way to impress if you're having friends over :) x
