Happy Hour | Cherry Lagoon


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Woohoooo it's Saturday! If you're over the legal age to drink and you enjoy a tipple, here is a new recipe for you to try out. So far I'm really enjoying this new series! Tasty!

Cherry cocktail recipe

Cherry cocktail recipe

This cocktail is sweet and rich. I think it's the kind of cocktail I would serve with nibbles like brushettas and cheese. I don't know why. I didn't have nibbles when I drank it haha! It's fruity but not light and zingy like last week. 

Cocktail Recipe 


per glass

1 part malibu
1 part cherry grenadine
3 parts fresh cherry juice
4 parts lemonade 

Garnish with -

Crushed ice
Cherry
Green mermaid (clearly essential)



Serve with a smile and enjoy!






Toodlepip!

    1. Why have so many cherry flavoured juices in your home if you don't like cherry drinks? Haha you silly thing! x

    2. Come on, confess....I bet you missed off the mermaid, didn't you? That clearly would've made all the difference.

    3. I like cherry but this concussion was vile.... i don't know if it was the grenadine but i was feeling queezy after this...

    4. Not queasy enough to stop you browsing the internet and typing though. I'm sure you'll survive another day to moan at someone.

    1. Yay! Don't go mad though, if you're new to drinking I'd suggest going slow :) xxx

  7. Well there's a bit of bad luck. You just happened to have those ingredients to hand and rustled yourself up a cocktail before you could even say "...ahem....MANNERS!"....but sadly it wasn't to your taste. Oh well.

  21. I made this without alcohol because I don't drink so it was basically cherry juice and lemonade haha! But it was still delicious and refreshing :) especially on a day like today.

  28. Aw cherry and coconut in one drink! Sounds sublime! If you want to make it zingy, maybe adding cherry sourz could work?! ;) Scottish Wendy | Wendy's World xx

    Where did you get the mermaid thing from?! I tried to look in Tesco a few weeks ago for cocktail type things like umbrellas, but they had nothing! :(

    We still had the drinks though ;) xx
