You will be pleased to know that we have been testing a few cocktail recipes over the weekend (but only because we wanted to blog about it)! The first one we tried out was Pimm's, a British summer classic invented in 1823 by an English farmer. Made of gin with added spices, fruits and herbs, Pimm's is a very refreshing and colourful cocktail to try at home. Simply add slices of seasonal fruits (oranges, lemons, limes, cucumber, strawberries and mint leaves) and a soft drink of your choice (we used lemonade) and serve over ice.
Now that we shared a classic cocktail with you, let's also show you our latest concoction (yes it's been a very rough weekend for us): a mouthwatering drink made with fresh passion fruit, strawberries, mint, passion fruit juice and vodka. For 5 drinks, simply slice a handful of strawberries, scrape the seeds of 3 passion fruits, toss in a few mint leaves and gently crush together using a wooden pestle. You just want to extract the flavours so make sure you don't end up with a paste. Then add 5 shots of vodka (or less depending on how strong you like your drink) and fill the rest of the jug with passion fruit juice. Stir and serve over ice. Enjoy!
