Bardinet Brandy is bringing some French ‘joie de vivre’ this summer

Now brandy isn’t probably the first drink thst springs to mind when thinking of summer cocktails. Bardinet has teamed up with cocktail expert Adrian Gomes in a bid to give this traditional spirit a refreshing summer makeover.

Adrian explains: ‘In a country where evening aperitifs take centre stage, it’s no surprise that summer entertaining takes on a whole new meaning in France. To help UK drinkers be a little more experimental with their serves now that the weather is heating up, I’ve created two Bardinet cocktails: a refreshing summery spritz and an indulgent iced coffee, that will showcase brandy’s versatility as an all-season spirit.

‘Both cocktails were designed to add some French flair to summer drinking and elevate the experience – whether that’s a brunch, afternoon cocktail, aperitif, or a delicious nightcap to punctuate the end of a perfect summer day.’
