Sundowners – 3 Refreshing Cocktails to sup as the BBQ cooks!

The name “Sundowners", harks back to Britain’s colonial past, but don’t let that put you off! It is the collective name for a range of long cool drinks typically served at sunset, marking that point between the end of a long hot day and sitting down to formal dinner.  It reminds me of my folks who used to drink a whiskey and soda (from a soda syphon –  remember? ) and a glass of sherry before supper.  Different times! 


3 of the best “Sundowner” cocktails – refreshing and ice-cold.

Here are three recipes for ice cold alcoholic refreshers that will go down a treat at any BBQ whilst you wait for your gourmet sausages to cook…
