Hen Do Cocktail Making

This weekend I have been away on a Hen Do, we went to Cambridge for food, cocktail making and a night out. We have had a great time and made many memories, the cocktail making was great so I thought i'd share a few of the drinks I made and loved with you. We booked in our cocktail making at Revolution and paid just £25.00 per person. We got to learn the tricks of cocktail mixology, shaking, stirring and mixing up cocktails of our choice all while playing different games, which our team lost and guess who pulled the short straw and had to take a chilli shot? me! that really was gross, how anyone can drink them is besides me. There was three drinks that really stood out for me last night which I am going to try and make at home too, so I'm going to share the recipes with you. If you try these let know how you get on and what you think. 

Apple Spritzer
25ml Tanqueray No. 10
25ml Aperol
75ml Appletiser
50ml Prosecco

Orange and lemon slice.

Grab your gin glass and half-fill it with cubed ice. Pour the Aperol, Appletiser and Tanqueray Gin over the ice. Cap with crushed ice and top it up with Prosecco. Garnish the glass with a slices of orange and lemon then add two straws. Sip and enjoy.

Strawberry Woo Woo
25ml Stoli vodka
25ml Absolut Raspberri
12.5ml Teichenné Peach
25ml Strawberry purée
Cranberry juice to top

Start by filling a cocktail shaker with ice cubes and add the strawberry purée. Next pour in the Stoli, Absolut Raspberri and Teichenné Peach. Top with cranberry juice, stick the lid on and shake it like a Polaroid picture for about 7 seconds. Finally, pour the whole lot into a tumbler and get stuck in.

Strawberry Daiquiri
50ml Bacardi Carta Blanca rum
25ml strawberry purée
12.5ml gomme (sugar syrup)
12.5ml lime juice
25ml cranberry juice

Note: You’ll need a drinks blender or smoothie maker to make our Strawberry Daiquiri.

First, pour all the ingredients into your blender. Next take your serving glass (we use a classic cocktail glass) and fill it with ice, then empty the ice into the blender. Stick the lid on and blend until smooth. Pour into the glass and garnish with a lime wheel.

If you go give this a go, get ready for a night to remember.
