Fruity Summer Cocktails

Regular readers will know that I've done several posts recently about a garden party we're having this month for my step-daughter's 21st birthday. So far I've been looking at decorations and drinks and earlier this week I did a blog post featuring summer cocktails and promised more to follow. Well here are two more recipes from Bottlegreen (the perfect mixer for cocktails!) and they both include strawberries, everyone's favourite summer fruit.


The name of this cocktail says it all, so many fruity flavours make this the ultimate summer drink.


25ml vodka
25ml strawberry puree
15ml Bottlegreen Elderflower Cordial
10ml lime juice
Bottlegreen Ginger & Lemongrass Pressé or ginger ale
Glass: highball


- Shake the first four ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker
- Strain onto an ice-filled 12oz highball glass
- Top with Ginger & Lemongrass Pressé or ginger ale
- Garnish with strawberries


This light cocktail is perfect for a summers evening and the delicious fruity flavours are really refreshing.


50ml vodka
30ml Bottlegreen Strawberry & Elderflower Cordial
Bottlegreen Elderflower Pressé, chilled
Ice cubes
Glass: highball


- Pour the vodka and Strawberry & Elderflower Cordial into the glass and stir together
- Add two or three ice cubes
- Top up with the chilled Elderflower Pressé
- Serve with a stirrer and decorate with fresh raspberries or strawberries

I now have the party decorations and the cocktails organised so all that's left is to find some yummy barbecue recipes. I'll let you know how I get on!
