BBQ Cocktail

One of the real downsides of running iLoveMyBBQ.com is having to try all of the drinks that are associated with summer and BBQ’ing and this week is another toughie.

Southern Comfort (the people behind last years yummy Southern Comfort, Lemonade and Lime) have done it again and unveiled a range of sunshine inspired BBQ cocktails. We rate these as 5 out 5, brilliant BBQ Summer Drinks and cannot recommend them enough!

Great Summer Drink

The back story; Southern Comfort teamed up with top cocktail mixologist Giles Looker to create a range of summer drinks with a twist of New Orleans inspiration.

We found these to be perfect for a spot of afternoon BBQ drinking and what is more, cocktails are always a great way to impress friends!
