The most refreshing portable drinks to complement any picnic in the park

As lockdown measures ease today – allowing us to meet with five of our nearest and dearest in parks and gardens – and temperatures get set to soar to a practically tropical 21 degrees, many of us are already packing up the hampers for our alfresco reunions. But no picnic spread is complete without a refreshing drink, so with that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the best options out there. From boozy to non-alcoholic, here are some of our favourite ready-to-drink bottles, cans and pouches that are guaranteed to elevate any afternoon in the sun (or rain).

Award-winning, innovative rosé winemaker Mirabeau’s Pret-a-Porter cans make enjoying quality rosé on the go as simple as possible. A delicate peach pink colour, the rosé wine offers fresh fruit aromas to the nose: white peach, strawberry, pears and subtle hints of orange marmalade and roses. On the palate it’s generous and ample with peach and subtle berry notes, but with a nice crisp acidity. This is a tasty but refreshing wine that pairs perfectly with a fun day out in the park or by the beach. The cans are available to purchase in Waitrose stores nationwide and through Waitrose online for £3.49 per can.
