This blogs recipes are packed with spring seasonals and easter essentials. The sweet and fruity notes make for a tasty and thirst-quenching delight, that's perfect for a weekend tipple at home.


All you will need for all of the below drinks is a good blender. That's right, no shaker, bar spoon or strainers, just pop it all in and give it a whizz! We have popped below our favourite three blenders at the moment:

The Beko Black 2 litre is a powerhouse of a blender, it's 1600W gives incredible power and allows you top blitz up almost any cocktail in under 30 seconds and it can handle anything with ease, from smoothies to soups. 



The Tower blender is a more affordable option, which still gave excellent performance. It also comes with 3 cups of varying sizes so whether you're blitzing in batch or trying your luck at one of each, you'll have the perfect container for the task.
