There are combinations to suit every mood and every weather.
When I sail on my first cruise in July I plan to try a new cocktail every day!
What sort do you prefer? Gin or vodka based?
Originally made with gin, vodka cocktails became popular in the 1980s. Traditional cocktails began to make a comeback in the 2000s and by the mid-2000s there was a renaissance of cocktail culture in a style typically referred to as mixology that draws on traditional cocktails for inspiration but utilizes novel ingredients and often complex flavours.
A really delicious summer drink is Strawberry Lime Rosé Sangria (see below)
~ This light, refreshing, and simple sangria is perfect for sipping on a toasty summer afternoon. The bright ruby-red hue is compliments of starting with a nice pink rose wine, and then soaking strawberries in it. Lime adds a zesty bite, rum gives it a bit more potency, and lemon-lime soda mellows the whole thing out and makes it entirely too drinkable
In summer, I love pina coladas and Cosmopolitans, but in winter, whisky and dark rum-based drinks hit the spot.
