Summer Drinks For All The Family
For The Grown Ups…Wyld Wood Cider
This traditional cider, hailing from fruit grown in Herefordshire’s organic orchards, is deliciously crisp and fresh.

Available to buy nationwide in major supermarkets and independent shops and also online from the Westons cider online shop.

Virgin Mojito (makes 1 glass)
You will need…
