1. Watermelon lemonade

Watermelon lemonade with garnishes
Scoop out a watermelon to create not just a delicious drink but a quirky cup as well! Our watermelon lemonade looks super impressive – and you don't need to tell anyone how easy it is to make. Kids and adults alike will want to get their hands around these wonderful watermelons filled with a dash of citrus, soda water and mint. Try this for a refreshing summer tipple.
 

2. Raspberry lemonade slushies

Making these vibrant raspberry lemonade slushies is as easy as pressing a button on the blender. Whizz up your frozen ingredients, then divide your smooth slush into jars. Instead of sugar, we use agave syrup or honey for a healthier swap. If you have a bag of frozen berries in the freezer, you're already halfway there. 
 

3. Smoothie jellies

Smoothie jellies in glasses with ice cream
Mini spoons at the ready! Serve up our smoothie jellies with ice cream for a tiny twist on a kids' party classic. This recipe makes a delicious alternative to sugar-laden shop-bought jellies (and we use agave syrup or honey for a healthier sugar swap). These colourful cups will be gobbled up in no time. Try our top tip for getting the perfect scoop; dip a 1 tbsp measuring spoon in warm water, shake off any excess liquid, then carve out your ice cream.

4. Apple, elderflower & mint sparkle

Apple and mint punch in pitcher and glasses
Our apple, elderflower & mint sparkle is a grown-up party punch with delicate, fruity flavours. This recipe is easily doubled or halved, making it the ideal drink whether you're serving for a big crowd or small gathering. Take apple juice to the next level with a dash of elderflower cordial and sparkling or soda water. We love the simplicity of this terrific thirst-quencher. 
 

5. Watermelon & strawberry slushie

Why munch your way through a cool slice of watermelon when you can drink it in slushie form? Our watermelon & strawberry iced fruit slushie needs just three ingredients, with no extra nasties. They're so delicious, you'll need to watch out for brain freeze from speedy slurping.
