  4. Bloody Mary
  5. Strawberry Daiquiri
  6. Long Island Iced Tea
  7. Martini

Nick Burridge, Director of Sales at Classeq appreciates the components that make up a good cocktail,

“At Classeq we not only supply ice machines to provide the perfect ice for a great drink but also glasswashers that are made here in the UK and ensure that the cocktail glass is clean and ready to use too.”

A mojito cocktail is the perfect summer drink with its refreshing hit of mint and lime and can be made as follows:

1½ limes, cut into small wedges
Handful of fresh mint leaves
2½ tsp granulated sugar
Handful of ice
65ml/2½fl oz white rum
A splash soda water, to taste
Fresh mint sprig, to garnish


  1. Place the limes, mint and sugar into a sturdy, clean highball glass and mash with the end of a clean rolling pin, to bruise the mint and release the lime juice into the glass.
  2. Add the ice and pour over the rum.
  3. Add soda water to taste and stir well.
  4. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig and serve.

Nick continues:

“We are the leading suppliers of the Ice-O-Matic ice machines in the UK which have every commercial ice making requirement covered, from coffee shop to busy pubs, bars and restaurants, offering a range of machines from small under the counter machines to those with large storage bins, with ice options such as ice cubes, flaked ice and nuggets.”

“For the perfect cocktail glasses need to be clean and cool ready to use too,”

Enjoy the summer with your favourite cocktail!
