Summer is all about cocktails, pastel dresses & adventures.
I’m making it my mission this summer make time to enjoy the little things, the sunsets, the bbqs, the endless cocktails!
I love shaking up a storm in the kitchen but it’s a little harder at a picnic or a garden party as you 100% will not have all the little gadgets you need to create the perfect cocktails, this is where Funkin Cocktails come in. These ready made cocktail shakers are full of all the ingredients you need, sans alcohol, which means you can cater to everyone without having to miss a beat! Each bottle has exactly what ingredients you need printed on the side, and all you have to do is fill each bottle up to the correct line on the side, add ice and you are ready to shake up a storm!
The bottles come with a built in strainer so you won’t end up getting ice everywhere, I have to admit I was a little nervous about vigorously shaking anything near my new Silken Favours wallpaper but they held up perfectly, not a drop spilled.
Over the top cocktails are one of life’s guilty pleasures so I decided to add some extravagant toppings to my Strawberry Daiquiri & Passion Fruit Martini.
Fruit is a must and it’s a pretty obvious choice to go for strawberries in a daiquiri but as I love basil and strawberries together I thought I would add some to this cocktail, it tasted amazing and not at all like a summer salad! Mint and passion fruit might not seem like the perfect pair but they compliment each other perfectly.
I can’t wait to get out into the garden and have the first BBQ of the summer with my best girls, combined with some cocktails there are going to be some long hazy afternoons, and I couldn’t be more ready.
Remember to drink responsibly and BBQ safely.
