Summer Cocktail Recipe Ideas

As the summer months roll in and the temperature begins to soar, it's time to grab a few bags of ice, open the summer cocktail recipe book and enjoy a delicious cold beverage whilst basking in the sun. At Regency Hampers, we want to make sure you have all your spirits aligned and liqueurs at the ready as drinks in the garden with friends is one of life’s little luxuries that everyone should enjoy. In this article, we will showcase some of our best and most popular hampers to get you summer-ready, as well as providing some inspiration for summer drink ideas. Our hampers are great as gifts for your loved ones, or for stocking up your drinks cabinet.

Summer Cocktail Ideas

Whether it’s a call for celebration, or just time for a luxurious tipple, our Sparkling Prosecco gift box is the perfect gift or addition to your summer cocktail recipe supplies. You can pair this delectable Zonion 1821, Prosecco Doc Spumante Special Cuvee with a bottle of Aperol to create an Aperol Spritz. This Italian classic is a must for the summer months. The refreshing taste of orange is sure to inspire feelings of a beautiful Italian summer.

Picnic season is well and truly underway and we have a wide range of hampers that will be delivered to you in a luxurious picnic basket. Like our Henley Fitted Picnic Hamper, this beautiful hamper comes with a hand-made willow picnic basket and place settings. The centrepiece of this hamper is of course the Zonion 1821, Prosecco Doc Spumante Special Cuvee which is perfect for your summer cocktails recipes. For the non-alcoholic mocktails, you’ll find Luscombe, an organic raspberry sparkling presse. This hamper also contains all the amazing snacks and treats you need for a picnic in the sun, like Four Anjels luxury shortbread and gourmet cherry & almond cake. We also offer a range of picnic baskets you can use to construct your own perfect picnic at home; check out our whole collection here.

Our classic Gin & Tonic Lover’s Hamper is always a popular choice combining classic Gordon's gin with Fever-Tree premium tonic water perfect for those hot summer days. Gin is one of the most widely used and versatile spirits for summer cocktail recipes. Add gin alongside a slice of lemon and dry vermouth to create a classic negroni, or swap the lemon for lime and vermouth for a cordial of your choice and enjoy a refreshing Gimlet cocktail. This hamper also includes a range of delicious gin and tonic inspired snacks like the gin and tonic Joe & Seph's popcorn and Gin fizz gummies, alongside some other classic treats such as Four Anjels double chocolate biscuits and Lindt Lindor Swiss chocolate.

Summer Non-Alcoholic Drink Ideas

If an alcoholic beverage isn’t you or your loved ones' choice of drink this summer, or you have exhausted all your favourite cold drinks and need some summer drink ideas, check out some of our amazing alcohol-free hampers. Our Chartwell Hamper includes a selection of fruity and refreshing alcohol-free presses from Luscombe as well as a bottle of organic passion fruit juice. This hamper boasts a range of luxurious snacks that are sure to impress, including smoked salmon alongside a selection of creamy cheeses including Brie and blue stilton. We recommend researching mocktails and finding the perfect one for the occasion as alcoholic drinks are not always called for. A refreshing mocktail is sure to go down just as well as any cocktail when the sun is out this summer.

We also offer a range of fruit baskets that make great additions to your summer cocktail recipe arsenal. Our Tropical Fresh Fruit Hamper includes a range of essential fruits for those summer classics, like oranges for Pimms and Aperol spritz, pineapple to garnish your pina colada and grapefruit for your paloma cocktail. Fruit baskets also make a great partner to any of your summer cocktail ideas as a refreshing snack.
