When the elegant cherry blossom tree outside the shop is in bloom, it's usually a good sign that summer is on its way and that we'll soon be spending more time outside in the garden.

In celebration of this annual event, we have collated our ten favourite summer time drinks for you to enjoy.

[Please drink responsibly!]

1/2 shot of Passionfruit purée
Crushed ice
Pink lemonade
½ a Lime
A small handful of Pomegranate arils

Sprig of mint
"So, you pour the cordial and passionfruit purée into the glass like this.
Then you get daddy to crush some ice.
I put the crushed ice in like this and fill the glass with the pink lemonade.
I squeeze the lime juice (can you see my muscles? I'm pretty strong) 
and sprinkle the pomegranate thingies into the glass.
I always top it with a blueberry and a branch of fresh mint.
By the way, did I tell you I lost my first tooth last week? look......"
