Loaded with fruit and wine, sangria is the ultimate summer drink! It’s great for trying new flavours and go down well at a braai.
Try it: Home-made sangria
Bring on the tequila! While we must admit, margaritas are the perfect pairing to traditional Mexican foods, we can’t help but love them as a luxurious poolside option with extra fruity goodness.
Try it: Skinny strawberry margaritas
Is there anything more refreshing than a wine spritzer? Not only are they tasty, they’re also a classy option if you’re hosting an outdoor event.
Try it: Watermelon and lime spritzer
Who doesn’t love a classic gin and tonic? It’s a fresh and cool option perfect for light and easy drinking. Add some floral flavour, and you have a recipe for success.
Try it: Gin, rose and lime cocktail
5. TEQUILA SUNRISE
The name may suggest otherwise, but this fruity drink is ideal for those sundowner moments with friends! A mix of orange juice, grenadine syrup and tequila make for the ultimate quencher.
