Recipe - Cocktails
When using lemonade as a mixer, try Tesco's own - it's not too sweet or invasive a flavour, and works well.
MargaritaFor a glass:
- 3 parts tequila
- 2 parts freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 part triple sec
- Few rocks of salt
PimmsI love my Pimms strong, but for a jug you would prefer to use 2 or 3 parts lemonade to 1 part Pimms.
Traditionally, you should add ice, strawberry, cucumber and borage. However, any fruit will do, and mint will do in place of borage, but be sure to add cucumber.
- 3 parts red wine - cheap spanish wine such as Marquis de Tena (£2) is fine
- 2 parts orange juice, preferably freshly squeezed with "bits"
- 1 part white rum
Sangria can keep overnight in the fridge, and some say it is better to be made in advance in any case - but it doesn't last long in my house!
PunchAnything goes! However, here is what we threw into a bucket for a killer punch which tasted great - and hit hard! Ideal for parties.
- 1 litre white rum
- 1 litre vodka
- 1 litre pimms
- 3 litres orange juice
- 1 litre grapefruit juice
- 1 small bottle lemon juice
- 1/2 small bottle lime juice
