This one needs a week worth of prep but it is so worth it if you're a fig fan. Using Smirnoff Vodka, pour half a litre* into an airtight container along with sliced fennel and half a pound of dried fig then pop in the fridge for a week, just remember to give it a little shake each day. When you're ready to serve, strain the vodka over tumblers of ice and serve with a slice of fresh fig. It's savoury, earthy and perfect for dark evenings. (*This makes eight cocktails)
I've been a Baileys fan for a long time, it has always been my adult drink when I try and be sophisticated, my not so adult drink of choice is Captain Morgans Spiced Rum so being the sensible, adult I am, I mixed them together. To create The Princess & The Pirate mix 25ml Baileys with 25ml of Captain Morgans and shake before pouring over ice. Baileys recommend this as a shot but you're all adults so pour and mix as you please.
Smirnoff Apple Bite -
Another vodka based cocktail, the Apple Bite is perfect if you like your drinks to have a bit of a kick. To make a single cocktail, pour 25ml of vodka over ice then add lemonade followed by apple juice. To finish, squeeze in a lime wedge then slice another to slide on to the side of the glass for garnish.
Remember to always #LetsCocktail responsibly.
