Waitrose Cellar Light & Easy Cocktails For Summer

The sun has been shining a lot this summer, apart from a few typically English rainy days. This lovely summery weather is an excellent reason to go outside and enjoy a nice party with friends. And an outdoor party wouldn't be perfect without some fresh drinks. Waitrose Cellar have put together a few cocktail recipes to help you impress your friends and have a great time. For our first feature, we chose a selection of three light and easy ones which you can have at lunch time or in the afternoon. All perfect to enjoy holiday time!
