Summer drinks in glass drinking jars
What could be nicer than time spent outdoors during the summer months? Whether in the back garden, out in the countryside or at the beach, we Brits relish getting out and about when the sun shines. Long walks in the countryside, days spent sunbathing at the seaside and time whiled away pottering in the garden all have something in common – they are pretty thirsty work! When the thermometer starts to climb, it is important to stay hydrated; therefore, today we have put together some great ideas for refreshing summer drinks to tempt you.

What to put in those glass drinking jars?
If you have not already gathered some sprigs of elderflower to make elderflower cordial, now is the time to do so before the blooms go over. Nothing is more evocative of a British summer than a cool glass of homemade elderflower cordial with ice cubes and perhaps a sprig of fresh mint, so try to make some before the elderberries form and it is too late.
Homemade lemonade is a simple summer drink that many of us have already tried; however, you can give it a special twist by adding raspberries to make a pink lemonade that looks fabulous and tastes sublime. You can also experiment with other fruits added to homemade lemonade, as it is very accommodating to additional flavours. Pineapple lemonade is exotic and really refreshing, whilst ginger and mint lemonade has a grown-up taste that is hard to beat.
If you are looking for some ideas for alcoholic summer drinks, rhubarb gin is definitely on trend. With a hint of sharpness and a gorgeous pink tinge, it is bound to go down very well at garden parties and barbecues. Another fabulous idea is to mix prosecco with limoncello and add frozen raspberries or strawberries in place of ice cubes. Add a spring of fresh mint and you have a very elegant summer drink that will have party guests queueing up for more.
