As ever, I have been thinking of ways to upstyle little elements of my life, and happy hour at home has become the latest area of focus. I have found that making a beautiful cocktail and enjoying it before dinner has become a real treat! Sometimes I'll sit in the garden and read a book, or fiddle around on instagram or video call a friend and it's a great way to relax. I thought I'd share the recipes for 3 of my favourites so you can enjoy too!
Easy cocktail recipes
Pour the gin, lemon juice and chambord over some ice, and serve with a lemon wedge. I topped this one up with some soda water but alternatively you can pour the ingredients over crushed ice and serve that way!
The Rhubarb martini
• 50ml rhubarb gin (get some here)
• 10ml dry vermouth (try this one)
• 3 dashes rhubarb bitters (optional but available here if you want to add)⠀
Shake over ice and serve with a lemon twist⠀
Citrus vodka soda
50ml citrus vodka (Absolut do a good one)
100ml lemon soda (alternatively use normal soda and add lemon syrup)
Shake over ice and serve with a lemon wedge
And enjoy! For more ways to upstyle, check out my other blog posts here
