Fruity Summer Cocktails with Pago Drinks
Hope everyone's having a good Bank Holiday Weekend? These Fruity Summer Cocktails will bring some sunshine to your day - even if the weather is disagreeing!

Pago Drinks recently challenged me to come up with some unique Summer Cocktails using some of their premium fruit juice flavours, and I'm never one to turn down the opportunity to indulge in a couple of drinks over the Bank Holiday! They have a large range of flavours available, but I ended up choosing Cloudy Cherry, Multivitamin Tropical and Pink Grapefruit as these appealed to me the most. All of Pago's drinks come packaged in glass so yay for no plastic!

Fruity Summer Cocktails with Pago Drinks
 Cloudy Cherry Gin Daiquiri

How To: Add 40ml Gin, 50ml Pago Cloudy Cherry, a squeeze of fresh Lime Juice, a dash of Bitters and a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Give it a good shake and strain into a cocktail glass.

Why I Love It: Gin and Cherry are a flavourful match made in heaven, and Pago's Cloudy Cherry is an excellent fruity mixer with any kind of classic dry Gin. The Bitters and fresh Lime Juice give it a lovely extra kick and zing!

Tropical Fizz (non-alcoholic)

How To: Pour 50ml Pago Multivitamin Tropical into a glass, top with a little Soda Water and finish off with a fresh Strawberry garnish.

Why I Love It: This one's a great 'mocktail' to serve to guests who are designated drivers or are cutting back on the booze. The Soda Water gives it enough fizz to liven it up a bit and brings out the best of these tropical fruity flavours.

Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Rhubarb Tipple

How To: In a small shot or tipple glass, add a dash of Pago Pink Grapefruit, two dashes of Rhubarb Gin Liqueur and gently stir. Add a few fresh Raspberries to serve.

Why I Love It: I'm always looking for ways to experiment with the more unusual Liqueurs in my drinks cabinet and was delighted to come across this 'happy accident' when I was mixing drinks for friends the other night. The tangy sharpness of the Pink Grapefruit is subdued somewhat by the slightly sweeter Rhubarb Gin Liqueur, but it still manages to retain a wonderful tarty aftertaste.
