Happy hour: cocktails to get the party started

Good news: the sun’s coming back out this weekend. Why not celebrate with a cocktail (or two)? From sunny sangria to alcohol-free lemonade, these refreshing recipes are sure to get the party started.

Add ingredients for all cocktails & mocktails here.

Sangria – This Spanish classic tastes just as good on a lazy sunny afternoon in an English garden.

• 1 bottle dry red wine • 1 tbsp sugar • 60ml brandy • 60ml Cointreau • 60ml orange juice • Sliced apple and orange  • 250ml soda water • Ice

Pour the wine, sugar, brandy, liqueur and orange juice into a large jug. Add the fruit and stir, then chill in the fridge. Add some soda water and ice just before serving. Serve with a wooden spoon in the jug so guests can stop the fruit and ice as they pour, and spoon some on top if they like.

• 6 bottles chilled white beer • 2 x 330ml cans chilled ginger beer  • 6 tbsp lemon juice • 2 thinly sliced lemons • Mint sprigs, to garnish

Pour the beer and ginger beer into a large jug. Stir in the lemon juice and mint leaves. Pour into glasses over ice with a slice of lemon and a sprig or two of mint.

Add all the ingredients to a large jug and stir. Pour into tall glasses over ice cubes.
