The summer is certainly upon us, and what better way to enjoy the sunshine than with a cold, sparkling drink in your hand. Imagine sitting on our retreat terrace reclining in a comfy lounger overlooking the sea with the perfect G&T or glass of fizz in your hand…
If you can’t make it to the Scarlet this summer, here are our favourite drinks to enjoy alfresco which are easy to recreate at home.
