It’s always this time of year we all pull our shakers from the back of the cupboard and brush up on our cocktail making skills. I’m usually an ale drinker – easily pleased – but when the sun is shining and the temperature rises just over 25 degrees it’s so tempting to crush some ice, mix together some of your favourites and be a little self indulgent. For those of you who haven’t already seen via Instagram or Snapchat (dayofrest), over the past weekend I’ve been in France (post to follow). We’re staying in a small village called Montreal just outside of Carcassonne in the South East of the country.
It’s 32 degrees and I’m currently sat out in the garden by the pool with a glass of the regions finest vino writing this post. This is our second year in a row and once again we’ve spent the week devouring bread, swimming in the lake and throwing together cocktails – and so I thought I would show you three of my favourites. All are simple to make and are based on classics, the ingredients we had in the drinks cabinet and my love for Tequila!
