4 Summer Serves we’ve tried, tested and loved

Watermelon Gin Summer Serve

With summer just a hop and a skip away, we can almost smell the scent of sizzling barbecues and taste freshly picked strawberries on our lips. And there’s nothing more satisfying than enjoying an alfresco drink with friends as the sun sets on a long, hot day.

Top of our summer serves hit list are these four beauties we’ve crafted and made with Two Birds seasonal favourites packed full of fruitful flavours and beautiful botanicals.

Fun, fruity and full of tropical flavour, our Passion Fruit Martini fuses Two Birds Passion Fruit & English Vodka with fresh passion fruit, lime and vanilla for pure sunshine in a v-shaped glass.
