Northerners (25%) and Midlanders (32%) say they’re inspired by holiday experiences when it comes to choosing drinks - but southerners (20%) are more likely to be influenced by recommendations from family and friends.

Summer get-togethers are no longer run-of-the-mill occasions either, with more than half (59%) of those surveyed claiming that the holiday period is the perfect time for drinking cocktails and 51% unveiling that cocktails are the perfect BBQ drink.

As a nation, we’re shaking up our social occasions by hosting more of our own cocktail parties and Londoners are leading the pack with nearly half (46%) planning to host or attend a cocktail party this summer.
