Many old friends will be familiar with this Bauduc summer cocktail but you can add another optional ingredient: cranberry juice. This is a great drink that you can prepare in advance of a small party. Without any vodka, it’s pretty low in alcohol too.
For 25 long drinks, pre-mix in a very large jug:
2 bottles of Château Bauduc Rosé 2010
50cl Cranberry juice
A squeeze of fresh lime juice
Slug of vodka (optional)
Keep the mix cold and slice up 3 limes into wedges. When guests arrive, put ice into some tall tumblers and half-fill with the Rosé mixture. Then fill each glass completely with Canada Dry (you’ll need about 2 litres in all). Garnish with fresh mint leaves if possible, and squeeze a small lime wedge over each glass and drop it in.
I suggest you test out the measures beforehand to suit your taste but be careful not to overdo it.
