Seedlip cocktails to satisfy a crowd: Non-alcoholic Summer pitchers

We can thank the 13th century for the word pitcher. A term used more readily over in the US. It means earthen jug.

In Summer, drinks served in a pitcher are an easy way to satisfy a crowd and in this new normal of keeping as many hands to themselves, it’s a useful option to keep to social distancing.

There’s one key piece of advice when making a cocktail pitcher. Don’t skim on the ice. Ice keeps ice cold. Cold ice will stay in its frozen state for longer, avoiding the rather unpleasant taste of an overly diluted drink. If you’re hosting, buy bags & bags of the stuff.

We’ve tweaked some of our best non-alcoholic Summer cocktails such as the Grove Margarita and Grove Fruit Cup so each recipe can be made in a jug and serve six people at a time. Everyone wants a slice of the celebration so dress up each glass. We’ve included garnish suggestions below.
