Thrill your guests 
with the first sip of summer:

Refreshing HENDRICK’S 
Cucumber Lemonade

Banish thoughts of a complicated event to another day. Today we are thinking about cocktail ideas for a small gathering of your very closest friends. Perhaps in a garden, you meet and talk in the brilliant sunshine – sharing your usual silly jokes – is this a secret garden party? Well, you haven’t invited everyone, so it is to some extent. As the Cucumber Lemonades joyously fizz, the afternoon becomes a rip-roaring success! Not all cocktail ideas for parties need preparation; snatching the sunshine requires a carefree spontaneity (though planning to prepare a crisp, cool batch of cocktails is a marvelous idea).

How to host a 
HENDRICK’S Summer party

There are a thousand gazillion reasons to host a party in Summer, with arguably the most important being ‘because it is an utter delight’– though coming a close second is that it is an ideal occasion to share the scrumptious merriment of the very best summer cocktails. Encourage guests to wear bright floral clothing (those who prefer more somber colored attire may adorn their hat with a flower). We recommend light food, light merry music and easy gin cocktails. The first fun cocktails of the day are best served in bright sunshine, culminating in Summer gin cocktails beneath a star-blessed night sky.

Hendrick’s Original Gin bottle with flower and cucumber base

HENDRICK’S GIN, with its distinctly elegant black bottle is the most beloved of gin gifts. An unusual gin created from eleven fine botanicals, this is a most distinguished Scottish gin gift.
