Summer is finally here and it’s a bank holiday weekend! What better way to welcome in the warm weather than with a few cheeky cocktails on a lazy Sunday afternoon? Here are our favourite three drinks to get you dreaming in the sun, thanks to the cocktail legends at Jewel Bar in London’s Piccadilly.

WATERMELON MOJITO

  • 50 ml Bacardi Superior Rum
  • A sprig of mint
  • 20ml lime juice
  • 5 watermelon balls, crushed
  • 20ml sugar syrup
  • 30ml soda
For maximum refreshment try a watermelon mojito. Muddle the melon in the bottom of a glass, then bruise the mint and put it in the glass with the rum, lime juice and sugar syrup. Add some crushed ice in and give it a stir. Add a little more crushed ice and serve.

ORANGE & PASSIONFRUIT

  • 50 ml Bacardi Superior Rum
  • A sprig of mint
  • 20ml lime juice
  • Pulp of 1 passion fruit
  • ½ an orange quartered
  • 20ml sugar syrup
  • 30ml soda
This deliciously different tart little cocktail is perfect for anyone hankering after days in the sun. Build the base by muddling the orange in the bottom of the glass first. Then add the passion fruit pulp and bruise the mint and put it in the glass with the rum too, add your lime juice and sugar syrup, get some crushed ice in and give it a stir.

PINEAPPLE

  • 50 ml Bacardi Superior Rum
  • A sprig of mint
  • 20ml lime juice
  • 1 slice of pineapple, roughly 20mm in size, chopped
  • 20ml sugar syrup
  • 30ml soda
Like pina coladas? Who doesn’t?! This twist on the classic drink could be for you. Get all fruity by crushing your pineapple in the bottom of all tall glass, before adding mint leaves, lime juice and good slug of rum. Add sugar syrup, get some crushed ice in and give it a stir before topping up with more ice and enjoy!
