Dry and refreshing long drinks make perfect cocktails for a summer garden party or barbeque. Tequila and Gin are both ideal bases for crisp and complex long drinks. All four cocktails can be made in advance in pitchers, ready for your party.
All that remains is to serve your drinks and enjoy the party. Follow these steps for serving each drink.
If possible chill your glasses in advance by putting them in the freezer or by adding ice and water.
Select the correct glass and fill to the top with ice. Using only a few cubes of ice will spoil the drink.
Pour the drink, holding back any partially melted ice in the jug with the mixing spoon.
Garnish the drink. Garnishes are not usually essential, but they add a touch of elegance to your drinks.
