Hibiscus Margarita

So this time next year I’ll probably be enjoying the May Day bank holiday instead of thinking about Cinco de Mayo. That’s definitely not a thing in the UK, which is a shame because I’ll take any excuse for margaritas… Continue Reading →

GINGERBREAD MAN COCKTAIL

Give the Bailey’s a break and make your own creamy concoction. This isn’t quite as heavy as Bailey’s or as rich as something like eggnog but it’s still got a bit of a kick to it. It makes a nice… Continue Reading →

CHRISTMAS STOCKING COCKTAIL

Put the fruit at the bottom of your Christmas stocking to good use this year and make one of these. I love this drink, it looks all sorts of fancy but it’s actually pretty easy to make once you’ve got… Continue Reading →

SPICED APPLE SPARKLER

G & THAI (same same but different)

I love so much about travelling in Southeast Asia, the people, the culture, the landscape and obviously because I’m a glutton, the flavours. Fragrant and sweet and sour and fresh and creamy and spicy and all perfectly harmonious. But it’s… Continue Reading →

MOJITO POPTAILS

What could possibly be more refreshing on a hot sunny day than a cool mojito? A frozen mojito, that’s what! ‘Poptails’, ice pop cocktails, seem to be all the rage at the moment and it’s definitely a trend that I… Continue Reading →

ENGLISH COUNTRY GARDEN

This dainty drink is pretty as a picture. (Mr Colonial Cravings was quite keen on it despite this – don’t tell him that I told you.) It’s delicately fruity and floral and just perfect for sipping as the evenings get… Continue Reading →
