And if you want something for the drivers why not try this one:

Sea Breeze 

1litre Cranberry juice
450ml fresh Orange Juice
A few ice cubes
1 lime

Combine the chilled cranberry and orange juice with the juice from half the lime.Add the ice cubes and serve with slices of lime.

If there are no drivers try adding an extra kick with a good splash of chilled Vodka.

No Nancy, that was Vodka and not Vinegar! 🙄
