A Fresh Drink for a Sunny Summer Day

Gin and Tonic 1

Cool off this summer with a Gin and Tonic infused drink or enjoy it as sundowner while admiring the view at your LPA Home Resort.

With us already deep into summer and the warm scorching sun being upon us – it’s that wonderful time of the year where you shed all the layers of clothes, wear your favourite summer-inspired swimming attire, lay on the beach or next to your much-loved Resorts Swimming Pool on an outdoor lounger – and cool off with a summer-ready cocktail. With Gin and Tonic still on everybody’s lips as the new trendy drink – we thought we would share this cool-downer recipe for you to enjoy on your next visit to your favourite home-away-from-home Resort.

Get the following ingredients to create this easy refreshing cucumber-cool cocktail:

Aloe Vera Juice


  • 50ml (two shot glasses) of your favourite gin brand
  • 60ml sweetened Aloe Vera gel Juice.
  • The juice of one fresh lime and slices of lime for garnish
  • Slices of thinly-sliced cucumber
  • Blueberries for garnish (not essential)
  • 200ml of tonic water


Pour the shots of gin, aloe vera gel juice, juice of one fresh lime in a shaker and shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass and add thinly sliced cucumber, lime and blueberries. Pour tonic water over the mixture and stir with a cocktail stirrer.

‘It’s a summer thing’ – enjoy your refreshing drink, while soaking in the sun, taking in the view, and appreciate this time of year.
