Nothing quite like a cool icy drink after a long day in the sun.

The cocktail hour really is one of our best-loved times of the day. Everyone gathers on deck or on the terrace, in their glad rags fresh from the shower and tanned from the hot summer sun ready to have a great evening. And what better way to kick off the party than with a few drinks whilst watching the sun go down?

To celebrate this special time of day we have put together a selection of some of our favourite barware and other cocktail essentials.
