Summer is in our grasp, at last! (Well ignoring this soggy weekend, it is Bank Holiday after all)

I can’t wait for my first glass of Pimms and Lemonade in the Sunshine – it always tastes so good, and if served from a jam jar and drunk from a paper straw then I’m one happy girl.

The Welcome drink definitely is something that you can have a little fun with – Signature cocktails for couples are becoming more and more popular, from Flavoured Vodkas to Bourbon mixes its worth thinking about what and how you want to serve your first tipple with your loved ones.

We’ve introduced lots of items in our ‘Assorted Glass’ section of hire – Our 8.5 litre drinks dispensers, Mixed jam jars (We have over 150, so if you don’t eat enough Marmelade in time we’ve got your back), Vintage Milk bottles and Mini milk bottles for the little ones add a bit difference to those drinks. Not to mention old tin baths to fill with ice and bottled beers for the boys or if you really want to get tounges talking the Metal Trough would be perfect for the bubbles to be served from. We’re also super excited about our Mini ladders and wooden plank which is the perfect alternative bar that we previewed on Facebook last week.

Here’s just a few ideas we’re thought of to fill your jars with :

– Apple, Elderflower and Sloe Gin cocktail
– Peach Punch
– Watermelon and Vodka Spritzer
– Berry Daiquiri
– Cucumber and Lime Cordial

Can you think of any others? What would be your first choice?
Take a look at out Pinterest board with lots more ideas and ways to display your drinks.

To start you off here’s our tried and tested Classic home-made lemonade recipe for you to have a try of this BH weekend :


3 unwaxed lemons, roughly chopped
140g caster sugar
1l cold water

1. Tip the lemons, sugar and half the water into a food processor and blend until the lemon is finely chopped.

2. Pour the mixture into a sieve over a bowl, then press through as much juice as you can. Top up with the remaining water and serve with plain ice or frozen with slices of lemon and lime and fresh mint.

Have a great one,
