This seasonal cocktail recipe is brimming with Valentine’s Day joy. If you’ve got the oven on for dinner, pop in a stick of rhubarb to soften for this pretty British twist on a Prosecco cocktail. With a lovely pink colour and tangy rhubarb making it so moreish, it’ll be a new favourite!
Mix Martini Bianco with Prosecco, a squeeze of lime and fresh mint to garnish, and you have yourself a classier version of a mojito – delicious!
Whisky lovers, this is the cocktail you’ve been waiting for. It’s an outrageously good twist on the old classic, adding maple syrup for a little sweetness and rooibos tea (trust us) to really take it up a notch.
A white Russian makes a gorgeous after-dinner cocktail, with the simple, smooth mix of vodka, coffee liqueur and cream making it (almost) too easy to drink. Shake the ingredients together to make sure it’s super cold for serving — it’s the secret to a perfect white Russian.
