When looking for inspiration for some fabulous summer cocktails, what better place to start than our Cool and Quirky Dress.
It’s fresh, it’s zesty and it’s full of summer spirit! Perfect for BBQs in the garden and adding a bit of colour to your day.
This dress reminded us of a really simple but totally gorgeous cocktail recipe – the orange and pomegranate mimosa, a lovely aperitif for a lazy summers’ evening.
This recipe will make around 6 drinks.
You’ll need 3 cups of orange juice – which you will get by squeezing 8-10 oranges. You can use a carton of shop-bought orange juice, but it won’t give you that lovely zing that you only get with a fresh orange.
When you have juiced the oranges, making sure you get out all of the flesh, strain the juice and put it in the fridge.
When it is cool (and you are ready to go!) take an ice cold bottle of Cava or Prosecco and fill a champagne glass to around two thirds full.
Top with some of the orange juice, a small amount of cold cranberry juice, and, if you have them, add a few dried cranberries for effect. Finish off with a slice of orange.
Now you can wow your friends with your cocktail making as well as your dress!
(This recipe also works really well with mango juice and a fresh strawberry!).
