More daylight, more sunshine and more time with the girls – what’s not to love about the summer solstice? The longest day of the year is almost here and we’re ready to celebrate. Here are five ways to make the most of that extra daylight…

 

  1. Mix up a refreshing Lambrini cocktail

A big bowl of Sangrini is perfect for a long summer evening – just top up with Brini and fresh fruit as you go.

  1. Create a playlist of your fave summer tunes

Think back to summers past – what was the theme tune to that girls’ holiday in Tenerife? Or the song that was always on the radio during your Uni summer hols? Choose songs that’ll bring back memories, make you smile and get you dancing. Here are some of our faves:

  1. Invite the girls round

The longest day of the year is best spent with friends, but you don’t have to plan a big party. Get the girls round for a laidback garden party – lay picnic blankets out on the grass, crank up the music and have a good gossip. Later on, fire up the BBQ and get some burgers on the go. Oh, and don’t forget the Lambrini!

  1. Play a retro game of rounders

Remember when you were younger and summer was all about running around with your friends? Throwback to those glory days by splitting into teams and playing rounders. All you need is a bit of space, a few bats and a ball and you’ll soon be cracking up as you try to catch someone out!

  1. Watch the sunset

On 21st June the sun starts to set at around 9pm – get your group to a vantage point (a hill would be perfect), grab a glass of Lambrini and watch as the sky turns from blue to gorgeous pink. Don’t forget to Insta the view!
