These bar floats are perfect for G&Ts by the pool

As holiday season is officially upon us, we thought you might be prioritising all the things you intend to take in your suitcase. There’s all the necessary items: the clothes, the sun cream, the book you’re looking to enjoy down the beach.

What you might not have considered, however, is clearly most important of all. Gin lovers, what’s the finest way to enjoy a G&T whilst in the pool?

Answer: If you’re not swigging it out of a multi-purpose beach gin glass, why not have it as part of a floating pool bar?

This is exactly as cool as it sounds. Next time you book a break, consider having your G&Ts delivered by the perfect holiday accessory.

Depending on which one you choose, there’s plenty of room for your gin, tonic, ice and snacks or treat your friends to a G&T with slots for multiple glasses.

There’s a few designs out there and some are a little on the extravagant side we admit. You could, for example, enjoy your next G&T out of a rainbow or pineapple float.

If you’ve recently sampled That Boutique-y Gin’s Spit-Roasted Pineapple Gin, we reckon it can only get better with a matching float.

However, if you love the idea but don’t want to go too OTT, no problem. There’s a simple silver design with Life’s Floating Spa Bar for those who take their G&T delivery really quite seriously.

Most bar floats are pictured with wine and beer but we reckon some cheeky canned G&Ts will fit into the compartments nicely. Alternatively, a bottle of your favourite gin accompanied by a few bottles of tonic is sure to go down well at the pool party.
