As the weather starts to improve in the UK, we’re starting to venture outside for the first time this year. To get some Vitamin D, Brits like to spend whatever time they can outside when the sun is shining. The BBQs come out, beer gardens open and the picnic blankets emerge. While there’s plenty of British food to get excited about in the spring and summer months (pork pies – we’re talking about you), enjoying a fresh cocktail out in the sun really is the bee’s knees!
If you’re looking for something a tad different than a jug of Pimm’s or a G&T, check out these ultimate spring cocktails by Franklin & Sons Ltd – perfect for getting you in the springtime mood!
