As we move out of lock-down a catch up amongst friends is well overdue.

New data from Bacardi shows that 71% of the British public claim reconnecting with friends and family is their number one priority post-lockdown, so what better way to celebrate than by coming together over a cocktail?

Conveniently, this Thursday 30th July marks International Friendship Day, so what better time to reacquaint with close friends?

Whether you choose to raise a glass virtually or at a safe social distance, Bacardi Limited has a range of seasonal cocktails that are both simple to make and delicious. Cheers to that!
