Cocktails and sunbeds
When we think of summer, we envisage sipping on delicious cocktails all day long, stretched out on a well-placed sun lounger with just the right amount of dappled shade. This got us thinking: which sun lounger deserves which cocktail?
The Biarritz Lounger has that classical Belle Epoque glamour, so it needs a cocktail that is equally glamorous. We chose the Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri. So shake up that cocktail, get out your largest pair of sunglasses and relax.
Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe
8 ounces crushed ice
3 ounces of rum
2 teaspoon of fine sugar
4 ounces of fresh/frozen strawberries
fresh mint for garnish
Mix all the ingredients in a blender. Blend all the ingredients until they reach your desired consistency. Pour into glasses and finish it off by placing a couple of extra strawberries and some fresh mint on top.
If you want to recreate five-star poolside luxury in your own garden (whether you have a pool or not), then our Pentire Sunbed is for you. It needs a cocktail that is both luxurious and refreshing, we chose the Moscow Mule.
1 1/2 fluid ounces vodka
1/2 fluid ounce lime juice
1/2 cup ginger beer
1 lime wedge for garnish
fresh mint for garnish
Pour vodka and lime juice into a mug; add ice cubes and ginger beer. Stir to combine. Add some fresh mint and place a slice of lime on the mug for garnish. The classic Moscow Mule is served in a copper mug.
You won’t get lonely when sunbathing on this generously proportioned double sunbed. If you’re sharing a sunbed, you should probably share a cocktail too – so make sure you have a very large glass.
2 parts White Rum
4 wedges of fresh lime
12 mint leaves
Dash of soda water
2 heaped spoonfuls of caster sugar
Put lime wedges in a glass, add the sugar and muddle them all together with a fork. Rub the mint leaves between your fingers and drop them into the glass, mix with the lime juice. Half fill the glass with crushed ice and pour in the white rum. Stir the concoction together, until the sugar dissolves. Top up with ice and a dash of soda water.
Our stylish round Monterey Sunbed will be a comfortable addition to your outdoor space, whether you like to recline in the sun or shade. Half the bed can pivot around to allow two people to recline when it’s fully extended. Sink into sumptuous off-white seat cushions whilst catching a few rays, then pull over the curved canopy when it’s time for an al fresco siesta. To energise without the siesta, try this delectable cocktail.
35ml coffee liqueur
1 shot (25ml) of espresso
Pour the vodka, coffee liqueur and espresso into a cocktail shaker. Fill the martini glass with ice to chill and then fill the cocktail shaker with ice as well. Put the other half of the shaker on top and shake.
Empty the ice out of the Martini glass, then pour the contents through a sieve directly into the glass. Place three coffee beans on the top for a fancy finish.
