We’re in full swing preparing for the summer months here at Silver Bay, and there’s nothing that screams we love summer quite like a cocktail!

However, if you don’t drink alcohol it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your drinks.

We’re about to put to you some of the tastiest cocktail and mocktail recipes around that we think are perfect to set the Anglesey summer mood.

Make sure you have everything stocked in your holiday lodge cupboard to make the most of the stunning sunshine – enjoy it whilst you can!

 

MOJITO

Ingredients:

  • 4 Parts White Rum

  • 3 Parts Fresh Lime Juice

  • 6 Mint Leaves

  • 2 tsp Sugar

  • Soda Water

For a refreshing rum cocktail, you can’t go wrong with a mojito!

Yet what we really love the most about these tasty drink are the tantalising green mint leaves that remind us of the beautiful Anglesey landscape.

It’s luscious this time of year, and we think it perfectly represents Anglesey’s natural beauty!

Ingredients:

  • 7 parts Tequila

  • 3 parts Lime Juice

  • 4 parts Cointreau

On Anglesey, we have the perfect environment to create taste-bud tingling salt, and few do it better than the famous Halen Môn

We adore decorating our margarita glass rims with this beautiful produce and settling down to sip our tasty treat! It’s a great tribute to summertime on our beautiful island.

 

ANGLESEY SLING

Ingredients:

  • 3 cl Gin

  • 1.5 cl Cherry Liquor

  • 0.75 cl Cointreau

  • 0.75 cl Benedictine

  • 1 cl Grenadine

  • 12 cl Pineapple Juice

  • 1.5 cl Lime Juice

  • A dash of Angostura Bitters

An Anglesey Sling (traditionally known as a Singapore Sling!) is a fruity, summery treat and we love the tropical vibes of the drink.

These match perfectly with a summer’s day on Silver Bay beach, where you can sit back and relax alongside the gorgeous blue waters. It’s the classic image of a summer holiday, and one we flock to every year.

Why not have your summer moment in Anglesey when the summer months are upon us?
