Release your inner mixologist with these creative cocktail recipes! You don't have to be a seasoned bar tender to have a go at making a good cocktail. In fact, most classic cocktails have only a very short number of ingredients and take no time to make.
Classic cocktails and creative twists
I'll be honest, you'll only find a few true classics here since many you probably know well. That said, I have shared a few favorites.
But there are plenty slight variations on classics, like my St Germain Gin and Tonic, Mango Margarita and Pineapple Daiquiri. You'll be surprised at how just a slight change can transform a drink, and hopefully they give you ideas for your own!
I've also got a few that are as the result of much more playing around, like my Blushing Rose Vermouth Cocktail. Sometimes you need to let your inner mixologist out - I hope you'll join me in experimenting.
While many of these cocktails are perfect to cool down in summer, like a glass of Cava Sangria, there are a few perfect for the cold as well. Warm up with a glass or Gluhwein (German mulled wine) or Spiked Mulled Apple Cider.
There's something for every occasion and taste!
