Stay at home cocktail night

Set the scene in your garden or balcony with a comfy chair and footrest, get Alexa ready with your ultimate feel good playlist and start prepping your cheeky cocktail. Remember there are so many fab 0% alcohol options, to make an amazing mocktail too.

Add these to your shopping List :

Cocktail glass (The right glass, creates the right mood!)

Strawberries (Fresh or frozen)

White Rum

Lime Juice

Sugar syrup

Ice Cubes

For a non-alcoholic version, replace the rum for lemon-lime soda and a tbsp of lemon juice.
