We have truly been blessed this summer with a whole host of sporting events that are as tantalising as the drinks we like to consume whilst watching them. With the Cricket World Cup in full swing, this month we turn our attention to London’s biggest annual sporting event, Wimbledon 2019.
The tennis championships themselves are the oldest in the world and crowds have reached around half a million people in the past and we expect this year to be no different.
Play starts on the 1st July and will go on for two straight weeks where we will see Tennis’ biggest stars including Federer, Nadal, Williams and more take to the many courts at the All England Lawn Tennis Club.
For those of us who also enjoy the social aspect, it’s time to plan how to get through the stifling hot days – cheering when others cheer, and boo’ing when others boo. Luckily for you, this major summer event is accompanied by staple drinks that make it all worthwhile.
Start your day with something light; you can never go wrong with Smirnoff’s Strawberry flavoured vodka and a mixer of your choice. Don’t want fizz so early in the morning? Go for fruit juice.
A bit peckish before lunch or still peckish after lunch? Bailey’s Strawberries & Cream are perfect for creating soul-happy milkshakes or decadent desserts such as cakes or other seemingly more healthy alternatives…
Too sweet but still too early for a jäegerbomb? Can you ever go wrong with a Pimm’s summer fruit punch? Tradition should be respected.
Start the Wimbledon season the right way, by stocking up on your essential now.
