Summertime opens up a whole world of cocktail possibilities and I like to shake things up (pun intended) each year with a few new creations. I’ll be kicking off my backyard parties in style with these delightful warm-weather drinks, which you can make ahead and store in the freezer so they’re ready to serve whenever you feel a fiesta coming on! Use whatever herbs you like to add a delicate pop of flavour to your drinks – I’ve tried basil, mint, rosemary and cilantro and they’ve all been delicious. The taste testing was arduous (ok, not really). The best part? If anyone asks what you're having for dinner, you can say salad. Herbs and cucumber are salad, right?? Cheers to summer!
