Recipe: Spring Summer Cocktails | Jess & Josh Cook

I keep hearing rumours that we’re due a heatwave over the Easter break (although I feel like the papers say that ever year) and with the ever so slight increase of temperature as we enter Spring, what a perfect time to share with you a couple of cocktail recipes.

We were invited by Aldi UK to join their #aldifavouritethings campaign and were sent a few bottles of booze with some cocktail recipes we could make with them, or we could create our own! We took inspiration from the list of recipes and came up with two drinks using what we had left in the fridge.
