Summer Cocktails: Three Frozen Favourites

 

 

Summer is only around the corner and we’re looking forward to nothing more than bright & sunny days filled with great company and even better cocktails! Every year, we see a wide range of exciting new cocktails available in our local bars themed for summer and a tasty way to keep us hydrated on those hot, beer garden days.  We always find our go-to on these particularly scorching days is general a frozen cocktail and sometimes the only option is the famous strawberry daiquiri! What makes this cocktail so appealing is the simplicity of popping the ingredients into a bar blender, blend and you’re done! With keeping this in mind, we’ve sourced three frozen summer cocktails with a twist that are very easy to make and sure to be a hit on your cocktail menu!
