  1. Still the same one I used to drink when we used to go to Kings Cocktail bar off Deansgate when we were 15 (ssshhh dont tell my mum!!) Pina Colada, it’s like a tropical holiday in a glass, absolutely love it!!

  2. I discovered the Scarlet O’Hara cocktail when I was on holiday and it’s amazing! Haven’t found it served anywhere in UK though so normally end up with a Strawberry Daiquiri instead :)

  3. Thanks Alison, I’ve gone from ‘Black Russian’!, through to Mojito and now I’m all grown up its a Singapore Sling xx

  4. I love all things ginger….gingerbread men, ginger nuts, and my lovely ginger-haired boyfriend…can you see there is a theme here…..So I’ll have to go for a GINGER BEER MOJITO – replacing soda water with ginger beer….Rock n Roll!!! :)

  5. My favourite cocktail has to be a strawberry daquiri.. especially when it has fresh strawberries in it, perfect summer cocktail!

    A cocktail masterclass would be amazing with my new uni flatmates :)! xx

  6. Strawberry Vice which I tried in a trendy bar in Didsbury one time – it had champagne, strawberry juice and I think citrus fruits. It was amazing. By far the best cocktail I’ve had, you couldn’t taste the alcohol.

  7. reminds me of my wonderful time spent travelling when I was younger! Lots of memories come flooding back every time I take my first sip!

  8. had a fabulous but lethal champagne, jim beam and cherry brandy one at the weekend. can’t remember for the life of me what it was called but it was great!
