5 Cocktails To Pair With Your BBQ

These cocktails are smokin'

Bank Holiday weekend? Check. Mini heatwave? Check? We all know what that means, right? Time to fire up the barbie, baby - and it ain't a British BBQ without some banging cocktails to wash down those burgers. 

Rackhouse Lemonade

This long, refreshing number is made using Daddy Rack Straight Tennessee Whiskey, and if there's one thing they do hella well in the South, it's BBQs, so no surprises this serve goes epically with your chargrilled meats and fresh dressed salads.

Mai Tai

A Summer tradition needs a summer drink, and it doesn't get much more summery than a Mai Tai. This iconic tiki serve was originally created in 1944 at Trader Vic’s using Wray & Nephew. Using the Appleton Estate 8 Year Old Reserve rum is how we make it.

Smokey Margarita

The best Summer BBQs are the ones that start at mid-day and are still going long after the sun has set, and the drink that'll make sure the party keeps going is always a Margarita. We like this smokey twist using the hella smooth Casamigos mezcal - it complements the smokiness of the grill, and you can even pimp your garnish on the flames. Thats hot!

Lemon Pie

You've been so preoccupied sourcing the meat, baps, potato salad and burger cheese that you totally forgot to whip up a pud. No dramas. This Lemon Pie cocktail by the crew of Pied a Terre in London is better than a desert (cos it's packed with booze!)

Pirates Of The Idle Rocks

Evoking languished memories of coconut tree-lined beaches, this cocktail from Cornish coastal hotel The Idle Rocks is the ultimate sun-downer cocktail. Great for when the warmth of the sun has gone but you're still feeling those tropical vibes.
