The Markus Lupfer team has tried and tested three cocktails and one mocktail inspired by the fruits of this season's collection.

The hand-picked tees include the Bitter Sweet Alex Tee, Just Peachy Alex Tee, Sequin Melon Dramatic Kate Tee and the Watercolour Rainbow Strawberry Nicola Tee which have been re-imagined into drinks to complete your bank holiday weekend and beyond.

 

JUST PEACHY SANGRIA

Create a poppingly peachy pitcher with this Just Peachy White Sangria recipe!

 

Ingredients:

White Wine, Brandy (optional), Sugar Syrup, Ginger Ale, Peaches, Nectarine, Raspberries.

 

How to:

  • Slice 2 peaches, 1 nectarine and 1 lime, and add to your pitcher.
  • On to that, pour 1 bottle of white wine, ½ cup of sugar syrup, 4 tablespoons of brandy and 2 cups of ginger ale.
  • Stir to combine and add a handful of raspberries to top it off.

 

This Sangria variation adds a fun twist to your favourite summer drink and can be shared with friends while reminiscing about holidays past. Pitcher perfect!

MELON DRAMATIC PUNCH 

Add a pinch of drama to your day with our Melon Dramatic Punch, which is ideally enjoyed in the sun!

 

Ingredients:

Watermelon, Vodka, Limes, Honey (optional), Tonic, Mint (optional).

How to:

  • Mix ¼ cup watermelon juice/blended watermelon with ¼ cup vodka.
  • Squeeze over the juice of half a lime, add some honey for a little extra sweetness and top up with a tonic.
  • You could even add a frozen watermelon cube and some fresh mint for a garnish!

 

This one in a melon drink screams ‘summer’ and can be easily converted into a mocktail by swapping out the vodka for more tonic!

RAINBOW STRAW-BERRY MOCKTAIL

For a refreshing summer drink without the alcohol, try this Rainbow Straw-berry mojito mocktail.

 

Ingredients:

Strawberries, Mint, Limes, Ice, Lemonade.

How to:

  • Simply add a couple of handfuls of strawberries to a pitcher, with a good pinch of fresh mint, and muddle together to release all the flavour.
  • Add the juice from half or a whole lime depending on how tart you like it, then fill to the top with ice and lemonade.
  • Add a paper rainbow straw to your glass to truly reflect our tee!

 

This is an amazing summer mocktail, to pass around the picnic blanket and help you cool off from a hot summers day.
