Sundowner Cocktails

3 of the best “Sundowner” cocktails – refreshing and ice-cold !

The name “Sundowners” , harks back to Britain’s colonial past, but don’t let that put you off! It is the collective name for a range of long cool drinks typically served at sunset, marking that point between the end of a long hot day and sitting down to formal dinner.  It reminds me of my folks who used to drink a whiskey and soda (from a soda syphon –  remember? ) and a glass of sherry before supper.  Different times!  Here are three recipes for ice cold alcoholic refreshers that will go down a treat at any BBQ whilst you wait for your gourmet sausages to cook…

Lime Rickey

Ice-cold, crisp, refreshing Sundowner cocktails

Here are two more for the Barbecue!

Mint Julep

In the bottom of the glass, mix together 3 oz of bourbon, 6 crushed in the glass,  sprigs of fresh mint and 2 tbspn of  simple sugar syrup.  Add the ice and top up with club soda, stir and garnish with mint leaves

Moscow Mule

Fill your glass with ice and pour on 1 ½ oz vodka and 1oz of lime juice, top up with ginger beer, stir and garnish with a lime wedge.
