Anyone up for a round?
In Australia, we have the summer lifestyle down pat. As soon as the temperature soars, the beach gets busy, work winds down and we ditch warming wines in favour of refreshing cocktails. Fruity, colourful drinks have a summer vibe and are the staple of beachside bars and at-home entertaining. While there are as many cocktails as there are beaches in this country, if you know how to whip up these five cocktails -- some classic and some with a twist -- you’ll be set for all summer occasions.
A lighter version of the traditional red wine-based drink, white wine sangria is tasty but not as sickly sweet as other "girly" cocktails. Best of all, it’s super easy to make, but pace yourself -- it’s stronger than it looks.
Best for: Serve up jugs of sangria with a side of gossip at girls’ nights.
The carpe diem is a newcomer on the cocktail scene, but taste it once and you’ll soon find out why it’s here to stay. Colourful and light with the perfect amount of sweetness, this concoction really is a jug of fun.
Best for: Pre-dinner drinks with family or friends (and it also works well with light meals).
