I've quite taken to a long gin and tonic or variation of on these hot evenings.

But yesterday a friend gave me a can of ready made Mojito, welli was so impressed by that that I had to go and get the ingredients in to make my own.

The most refreshing cocktail so far this summer.

I also like a mint julep in this hot weather. It's kind of an old fashioned cocktail now.

A bit sweet but I like Pina Colada - home made. Trouble is it seems to make it more difficult to arise from the chair outside after a couple.

Will try QB’s alternative.

Home-made Lime juice with a dash of sugar - nice and cold from the fridge.

I drank gallons of it when i lived in Sri Lanka, and I've taken to it again over the past couple of weeks - nothing refreshes me more.

Before I knew that I was a Type 2 Diabetic, I would frequently make a "Citron Pressé".

Now it is chilled tea. In fact, a First Flush Darjeeling, with no additions

Vodka, Galliano, orange juice and plenty of ice.

A very large brandy topped up by a can of ginger beer. Obviously if you do not like ginger beer just add another large brandy.
