When the weather is hot there is nothing more enjoyable than drinking a refreshing cocktail, or mocktail, so here are three of our favourite picks from the BBC GoodFood website:

Strawberry Gin – this takes three weeks to mature so if you would like to enjoy a bit of gin flavoured gin you will need to create this recipe quite quickly.

You will need:

700ml bottle of gin

400g punnet of strawberries, sliced

100g caster sugar

All you need to do is to mix the gin with the strawberries and caster sugar in a large bowl and pour into a sterilised jar. Then store this in the fridge for three weeks, stirring every two days – then strain through a filter or a muslin cloth and serve with ice and mint.

Mojito Mocktail – this is a great mid-week recipe or if you are the allocated driver.

You will need:


1 tbsp sugar

small bunch mint

juice of 3 limes


soda water

Peach Melba smoothie - Peaches are in season at this time of year, so rather than using tinned peaches as the recipe suggests you could use 410g of ripe peaches instead cut in half and decored.

You will need:

410g can of peach halves

100g frozen raspberries, plus some to garnish

100ml orange juice

150ml fresh custard, plus a spoonful for garnish
