Harissa and honey marinade
Behold, the pièce de résistance of your sizzling spread. To make this marinade, blend two tablespoons of rose harissa paste with two tablespoons of olive oil, three tablespoons of honey and two crushed garlic cloves.
Garlic and onion BBQ marinade
Add a splash of garlic and onion to your vegetable skewers for an extra flavour boost. This simple marinade recipe can be made by blending one small onion and four cloves of garlic with 40ml of red wine vinegar, 50ml of olive oil and a handful of rosemary and parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Barbecue cocktails and mocktails
You’d be forgiven for thinking the Bs in BBQ stand for booze and bevs, because no barbie is complete without a delicious selection of refreshments.
Our barbecue drink recipes have something for everyone, including summer mocktails for the all-important, heroic designated drivers!
It’s not a garden party without the aptly named garden party mocktail. Fragrant and tart, this tastes delicious as a gin cocktail, too.
Sweet, floral and refreshing, this is what summer’s all about. And it’s just as tasty as a mocktail as it is a gin-infused cocktail.
This is a drink that does exactly what it says on the tin. To make it an adults-only cocktail, just add a dash of vodka.
A creamy, refreshingly sweet treat that perfectly complements the smoky, sizzling flavours of a barbecue.
Wanna spice things up a bit? Add a splash of rum to make this mocktail an alcoholic cocktail.
A barbecue is only as good as it’s leafy sidekick, and our summer salads are up there with Robin, Gromit and Samwise Gamgee.
