Herby, floral mixes for spring: 15 sweet, sour and refreshing cocktails to make at home

The sun shines and we want fresh, herby, floral cocktails. Well, to be frank we want them whether it's shining or not, and that's why going DIY has so much to recommend it.

Forget the catch-all bowl of punch: we've consulted the experts from bars, restaurants and drinks brands and selected 15 master mixes to make at home.

While some are easy to build (and even easier to sip), others require a little forward planning or a refresh of your drinks' cupboard, but don't be intimidated or afraid to experiment; many ingredients are easy to swap out and we've included some shopping links to make it even simpler.

Remember: elements like sugar syrup are easy to make yourself, but if you buy it in nobody will judge you. They'll be too busy sipping your delicious, impressive cocktails and wondering when the hell you got so good at hosting.
