Summertime Sipping Roundup

It’s such a pleasure to do this roundup.  It’s my first very own blog challenge so I was so chuffed at all the amazing entries.  I hope they also give you some seasonal and botanical inspiration this summer – if and when it actually arrives!

So first off the very talented Cakeboule with her recipe for Pink Lemonade made from scratch. I love the commentary and beautiful photography in her blog post.  She even gives some great tips for freezing.

Next up some Mint Syrup from Linzi at Lancashire Food.   My husband loves mint and I think this would work really well drizzled into a refreshing Gin and Tonic.

More mint next from Choclette at Chocolate Log Blog. This time it’s classically paired with chocolate and wonderfully named Chocadoodeldoo!

Choclette also entered the delicious Rhubarberella – a rhubarb and rose cocktail with chocolate extract thrown in for good measure.

My new friend Danielle at Edinburgh Foody entered an Indian inspired Lime Soda.  This is a traditional drink served often with ginger and it’s just the most refreshing thing on a hot and humid day.

And last but not least – and my absolute favourite is Rhubarb and Ginger Zinger from Janice and Farmersgirl Kitchen.  I love the idea of making rhubarb syrup as a base for this drink.  Definitely one to try next time I see rhubarb at the market.

Thank you for such a great list of drinks to try.

And don’t forget to try The Savoy Punch, Sipsmith Summer Cup and Kandula Earl Grey Tea Martini too!
