What's Your Favourite Cocktail?

Ask a Question

Just wondering what everyone’s favourite cocktail drink is?

I’m building a bar in my garden and want to learn how to make cocktails for friends.

I love a pina colada but I am no cocktail expert.

Looking for cocktail favourites and recipe ..

My husband likes mojitos as they aren’t too sweet. Crushed ice,white rum, fresh squeezed lime, fresh chopped mint and soda water.

I just had an email with a competition for gin and ice cream and found these recipes on the entry page. They sound quite yummy. I love the sound of the zesty orange white russian.

I was going to save your link too but I think I'm too lazy to deal with the different ingredients-I like speed - the do sound really good but I need to be served-not to do the prep myself 🤣

Probably sounds pretty boring but I love a Cuban. Luckily my daughter owns a pub and she does it perfect. I find many bar tenders add too much lime then you can’t taste the rum.

possy It’s very simple, it’s Rum, lime and coke. But like I say you have to get portions right, but that should be the same for most cocktails.

I love trying different cocktails, don't necessarily have a favourite. My last cocktail was a French Martini and was very tasty. Although also love a dark and stormy, or a spicy bloody mary (with gin, not vodka)!

I would love to learn how to make cocktails. Look online and see if you can find a list of cocktails or ask your friends what their faves are and practise at home and invite some friends over to be testers. Great way to learn and have fun at the same time.
