13 May 2022

Friday the 13th May isn’t all bad, it’s International Cocktail Day! There’s no better way to celebrate than to get your inner mixologist on, with a few of your i heart favourites poured in for good measure.

Our top picks for international cocktail day are summer classics: Frozé and Sangria.


A BBQ must have, perfect for the warmer weather! Combining our i heart Rosé with lemon, strawberries and a touch of sugar to give some serious summer vibes.

Ingredients – serves 4

– 1 bottle of i heart Rosé
