The Best Drinks To Pour This Summer

Take it for a swirl - from fizzy releases to refreshing tipples, life's looking pretty rosé this summer.

CHÂTEAU MIRAVAL Rosé 2021

With all its usual star factor, Rosé 2021 is the new release from Château Miraval, Brad Pitt’s and Angelina Jolie’s iconic French estate, which the then-couple took over in 2008.

100% organically produced, this perennial favourite is a blend of old vine Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle and Syrah. Pale pink in appearance, the nose is intense, with delicate notes of raspberry, redcurrant, pink grapefruit and strawberry, while the palate is elegant and beautifully balanced. Immensely versatile with food, this rosé works particularly well with light Mediterranean influenced sauces and dishes such as carpaccio, artichokes, tuna and hams. £25.00 via harveynichols.com

Rumor Cotes de Provence Rose

If you can’t visit the South of France, take it to the table instead. A combination of sophistication and lightness, and a beautiful blush pink, RUMOR is an easy-drinking, high-quality rosé. It masterfully blends delicate citrus and fruit aromas with a well-rounded crisp and dry finish – and when it comes to a celebration, this is the perfect way to toast. rumorrose.com

Sprigster Fizz

No alcohol, no problem. A refreshing non-alcoholic alternative to sparkling wine, Sprigster Fizz is crafted with ingredients foraged from an English country garden. Grab a glass and enjoy it on its own or add it to your favourite cocktail mix for some honey-hued bubbles. 15.00 via sprigsterdrinks.com

Wild Idol Rosé

Handcrafted from a superior blend of grapes by expert winemakers, Wild Idol elevates non-alcoholic alternatives to the next dimension. Vegan, gluten-free and with just 25 calories per 100ml, enjoy a rich sip with delicate champagne-inspired bubbles and fresh aromatic fruit flavours. Pop the cork and enjoy notes of red fruit, crisp green apple, zesty gooseberry hints and wisps of vanilla and toasted almond. £35.00 via wildidol.com

Saicho Jasmine

Boasting a collection of cold-brewed sparkling teas masterfully crafted to be as nuanced as the finest champagnes, Saicho’s creations are ideal for fiery heatwave days. 

Scented with jasmine blossoms, the delicate Saicho Jasmine has a bright floral aroma and notes of apple sherbert, lychee and vanilla, making it a refreshing aperitif.  £17.45 via saichodrinks.com

Mermaid Gin 

The award-winning Mermaid Gin is hand crafted on the Isle of Wight and uses ten locally foraged and sustainably sourced botanicals which are multi-distilled to deliver a smooth, clean and fresh delivery.

A smooth, yet complex blend of the freshness of organic lemon zest, the peppery notes in grains of paradise and a refreshing and invigorating hint of sea air from rock samphire. £37.00 via johnlewis.com

Liberation Cocktails Mojito

Liberation Cocktails, the mixologist grade, bar-strength ready-to-drink cocktail brand has unveiled a trio of new flavours for summer, including this seriously lively Mojito. Made using oak-aged white rum, Brazilian lime juice, natural mint and soda, simply shake it to make it and enjoy a chilled masterful glass without the added fuss of prepping your cocktail ingredients. £19.95 via liberationcocktails.com

Della Vite Prosecco Rosé

Della Vite has turned its award-winning charms to Prosecco Rosé, with the launch of its first vintage Prosecco. Despite accounting for 12% of total retail Prosecco sales, the production of D.O.C Prosecco Rosé was only approved in 2020, meaning this new category is yet to build a reputation for quality wines.

Staying true to its challenger nature, Della Vite is determined to address this, with a vintage Prosecco Rosé which tastes like no other. An aromatic nose of crushed wild berries and rhubarb gives way to a bright, fresh palate of delicate fruit flavours, balanced by a creamy texture and long-lasting finish.  £24.95 via dellavite.com

Próspero Tequila X Lockdown Liquor & Co. Cantarita

Inspired by the Cantarito, Jalisco’s tequila-based staple, is the Paloma’s supercharged sibling. 
Made with Próspero Tequila, the award-winning 100% Blue Agave Tequila produced in the lowlands of Jalisco by Stella Anguiano, one of Mexico’s premier female Master Distillers. When sunset strikes, it’s time for a tequila that is as unique and original as the women who’ve created it.
£25.00 via lockdown-liquor.com
