Kilner show us how to quench your thirst with recipe ideas for the best summer drinks and cocktails
From picnics and barbecues to garden parties and days out at the races, summer is best enjoyed with a cool drink of something sweet (and preferably alcoholic) at hand. If there’s anyone who knows how to knock up a good fruity cocktail, look no further than our friends at Kilner. After preserving British fruit and veg for 175 years, the brand today offers a much-loved drinks range perfect for the summer season.
