Summer isn’t over yet (Picture: ZEPPELIN / Supplied / Metro.co.uk)
Just because the parks have given up on grass, doesn’t mean we need to give up on trying to enjoy the rest of summer.
Once the temperature cools down to how Brits like it (sunny with a nip in the air) there are still so many quirky and summer-spirited food and drink products to be enjoyed when out and about with friends.
Or if you’re done with it, we understand. But there’s no reason you can’t taste summer indoors too…
So from vegan bubbly to delicious gelato and pickle gin (yes, that’s right), here are the best treats to see you through to autumn.
