Happy Summer! How are you feeling about having the sun out everyday? For me that’s just perfect. It feels like I’ve been spending way too much time outside in the garden enjoying drinks and going through my favourite fashion magazines. I also LOVE having friends over and enjoying drinks that I’ve specifically prepared for us. If you’re after some amazing cocktail recipes that are easy to make and delicious, keep on reading because I’m sharing two summer cocktails that you have to try this summer!
I’ve happily came across Liqroo, a premium liquor online store and app that stocks premium wine, spirits, beer & cider, cocktails & mixers at an amazing price. I’ve ordered three bottles of spirits and they’re literally cheaper than in any supermarket. It’s really easy to place an order as well – just create your basket and wait for it to arrive. If you’re looking for stocking up on your favourite drinks this summer while paying less money for premium products, then this is your perfect online store.
Let’s jump into two summer cocktails that you can happily enjoy with your friends. They’re absolutely perfect for a garden party, a summer barbecue or just for yourself when chilling out in a lounge chair 🍸
One of my favourite cocktails is Espresso Martini! I prefer making my own Espresso Martini as the cocktail needs to have the right balance of freshly brewed coffee, vodka and Bailey’s. Serve at brunch or early afternoon and expect your guests to be impressed.

- 25ml. Baileys® Coffee Irish Cream Liqueur
- 25ml. Espresso
- 10ml. Honey
- 3 Coffee Beans
Preparation Time: 10 min
- Add ice to your shaker
2. Add vodka, Bailey’s, coffee and honey
In a jigger, measure 25ml Vodka, 25ml Bailey’s, 25ml Coffee and 10 ml Honey and add them over the ice. Let the fun begin and start shaking.
3. Strain the cocktail into your Martini glass

4. Garnish with coffee beans
We’re ready! Just add 3 coffee beans on top of your drink and voila. You’ve just created the perfect cocktail for your summer gathering.
Food to pair with Espresso Martini: parmesan cheese & cured meats or infused espresso truffles or chocolate.
If you’re a fan of refreshing, really full on flavour drinks, then this Piña Colada will be just the perfect drink to refresh your summer days. You can serve this drink at any point of the day, however I would see this drink during lunch or early afternoon.

I’m super happy to have shared these yummy recipes with you and I can’t wait to see your amazing cocktails.
