A Hint of Summer

A Hint of Summer

May 14, 2019

We’ve talked a lot on the blog about the joys of spring. The wonderful colours that suddenly appear as the world around us starts to wake up, then over the last few weekends we have been truly blessed with weather that seemed to bypass Spring altogether and jump straight into the dizzying heights of Summer! Down here in lovely Cornwall the windbreakers were out, the beach was packed and the car parks were full by midday. Beautiful shimmering sunsets, crystal clear water and air warm enough for a light cardigan in the evening. Quite simply it was utterly fabulous, and the ear-to-ear grins of the visitors who braved the traffic jams to get here said it all, despite the fact their Easter eggs had probably melted on the way down!

So now we’ve had a little taste of what’s to come weather-wise, we’re totally stoked about Summer, and there’s a couple of vibrantly sunny new spectrums and colours to get the season going.
Calypso Disco Beads
Dripping with Caribbean happiness, Calypso is guaranteed to bring out your inner Goddess with its carefree greens and pinks.
Lagoon Bisco beads 
Then there’s the cooling aquamarine freshness of Lagoon  and of course, stunning Coral, but the one we want to celebrate right here and now is the minty-fresh, zesty colour of Mojito .  The perfect accompaniment to every summer outfit with the added bonus of hugely enhancing even the slightest hint of a tan (p.s. Coral’s quite good at this too!).
Mojito Disco Beads
So now you’re sun-kissed and glowing in your Mojito, what better to accompany the look than… a zingy citrusy Virgin Mojito. We all love a cocktail, but on those occasions when you want to do without the booze, if you haven’t tried the non-alcoholic version, you really must! Nothing says summertime more than a Mojito and we swear you won’t notice the difference:
8 sprigs of mint
Half a glass of lemonade and quarter glass of apple juice
One lime
1 teaspoon of brown sugar
Crushed ice
One thing that really makes this (or any ice-based cocktail come to that) is a cold glass, so fill your glass full of crushed ice before making it.
  1. In a separate glass, mash up the brown sugar and 4 sprigs of mint, adding some of the apple juice as you go.
  2. Add the rest of the apple juice, the lemonade and 3 sprigs of mint, and stir.
  3. Add the juice of half the lime, and stir again.
  4. Finally, pour over the crushed ice and add a couple of lime wedges and the last sprig of mint to serve.
It’s simple, looks pretty and it’s lush.
Why wait for Summer to come back when you can have it in a glass?
