The summer is here, whatever that means in Ireland and summer seasons always entice us for barbecues, picnics and especially cocktails.
Cocktails, for many, occupy a delicious category of special occasions – parties, celebrations, weddings, engagements, but also lazy brunches, that start with mimosas, dinner with friends, afternoons in the sun or holidays by the pool.
Whenever you are hosting an amazing party or you fancy a quiet evening with your close friends – be the best mixologist with the best taste in drinks and design.
Abode has a few essentials for summer day and night drinking. Style your summer and delight your senses with these tips from us.
