We know that the drinks served at a BBQ can be just as important as the food, and a great way to bring everyone together is to serve delicious cocktails. Purl London mixologists, Remi Satony-Bena and Emanuele Genovese, have put together four tasty cocktails that are easy to recreate at your BBQ party this Summer.
All the cocktails will add interesting flavours to complement your BBQ feast, and are chosen to accommodate all of your guests; including gin lovers, spritz maniacs, the adventurous, the old fashioned and the melancholic.
These recipes have been tried and tested by the Purl team.!
