Tropical Summer Cocktails


We would be lying if we said Sass & Belle HQ don’t love a cocktail or two. Anything tropical-inspired that reminds us of warm summer evenings, we’re on board! If it quenches our thirst in the process? Then all the better! Inspired by our super summery Tropical Summer collection, we’ve created two types of cocktails, one with alcohol and one without. They are really easy to make and utterly delicious. Pass us the cocktail shaker, we’re ready to impress…

This recipe is so simple and is such a refreshing drink for a hot day. As it doesn’t contain alcohol, it’s perfect for children and adults alike. Not only does it taste delicious but it only take ten minutes to prepare which is great when you want more time to play in the sunshine!
