As a responsible (!) adult over the age of 18, I enjoy the odd tipple here and there. I have gone through my 'clubbing days' and am now finding myself with a more mature(ish) palette and looking for quality over quantity.
I have seen a few bloggers sharing some of their favourite cocktail recipes or even news ones they have whipped up in their kitchens and decided that this would be a lot of fun to do over at Sprinkle of Glitter.
I want to make it VERY clear though that by running this feature I am not promoting drinking to excess and am keen to stress that these ideas are for those of you who are over the age of 18 in the UK or whatever the legal age to drink in your country is. I feel that since this blog has an older audience (compared to my YouTube channel which is slightly younger) that we can all cope. I'm not going to run this disclaimer every week but I felt it important to have it said. Please ensure you are not allergic to any of the ingredients used. Should you have any concerns about ingredients used, please consult your doctor as I am lacking in a medical degree and would be of no use to you. In a nutshell- be adults, be cool.
Now that's done, let's get down to business!
This is a cocktail for those of you with a big sweet tooth. It's not too sophisticated, it's fun and silly. I like drinks like that. I think would be perfect for a girls night in with a few DVD's and some popcorn.
1 part vodka
1 part raspberry ripple cordial (mine was from morrisons for about 60p)
3 parts fresh lychee juice
4 parts lemonade
Garnish with -
Pomegranate seeds (they look like sunken jewels)
Berries you have available (I went for a strawberry as it's in season)
Serve with a smile and enjoy!
