Serve up some new twists on your fave classics

Ooh la la, it’s cocktail hour!

It's a spirited soirée and everyone’s invited to the party.

Classic cocktails get all dressed up with some new twists you’re going to love.

Margaritas get the Aperol treatment - we skip the simple syrup in favour of Aperol in this recipe and trust us, it’s a delightful swap - and Tom Collins gets dolled up in a little basil for a savoury twist.

The Casino gets classy with some botanical gin flavours and we top off the cocktail round-up with a Nightcap featuring rum and a splash of cold brew.

So prep the home bar, mix up some new flavours, and get ready to have a spirited soirée of your own.
