Planning lots of picnics now summer is officially here? We are too! Picnics are the best way to enjoy the summer weather and chill out during the lazy days of summer. No picnic would be complete without refreshments to wash down all that yummy finger food and keep cool! Here’s our pick of the best drinks to take your picnic to the next level!

This pack of 4 is perfect if you want to test the waters as it contains two salted honeycomb hazelnut m+lks (our fave!) and two strawberry cheesecake m+lks!

Belvoir Lime & Soda Presse – £2.50 for a 750ml bottle
