If you are wondering, which I’m sure you are (not), what my drink of choice will always be every summer for ever more then this is it. The Balcony Refresher. The recipe is adapted from one originally in the Waitrose magazine (to contain more alcohol) and makes the most moreish summer afternoon cocktail there is. I’m really not a fan of watering down any alcohol ever, but the fizzy water in this one is what makes it so drinkable (for research purposes I have obviously tried it without too and it wasn’t as good.
Tip: Do not offer to make dinner after an afternoon of drinking a few jugs of this … at best the dinner will contain potentially dangerous levels of mozzarella and at worst will not get made at all. You’ve been warned.
Best enjoyed with people with a similar love of prosecco and gin, preferably on a balcony.
