Refreshing Summer Drinks To Enjoy Whilst Watching Wimbledon
Wimbledon has already started and the U.K has tennis fever hoping for a final with Andrew Murray. The sun is shining around the country and over the next two weeks many people will be enjoying the weather. With this we have decided to give you some of the best cocktails that you should be enjoying whilst watching the tennis.
Most people associate Wimbledon with strawberries and cream with over 28,000 kg (140,000 servings) of English strawberries being sold in the 2 week period. Pimms is also the drink of choice at the tournament with 320,000 glasses being sold.
Enjoy the tennis a little more over the next few weeks and try some of our favourite cocktails which are fantastically refreshing:
