Get in the holiday mood at home this summer and serve drinks to your guests in style with smart and sleek martini glasses, says M&S.com home editor Jo Caulkett
You know you’ve truly arrived on holiday the moment you sip your first Bellini by the beach. Recreate that off-duty vibe at home with elegant cocktail glasses. They’ll add instant fun to dinner parties, drinks with friends alfresco, or evening apéritifs. Make like a mixologist and experiment with flavour combinations, or channel 50s Hollywood poolside chic and go for a classic martini: simply mix one part vermouth with four parts gin or vodka, shake or stir with ice, then strain into a chilled glass and garnish with a lemon-peel twist. For a fragrant alternative, add a scoop of raspberry sorbet or a sprig of lavender. Want to keep things simple? Try an Espresso Martini or Passionfruit Mojito ready-mixed by M&S – you’ll find them online and in store.
