Following on from my recent Garden Party Accessories post, I've been searching for some cocktail recipes for our garden party. I want some recipes that are delicious but also not too difficult to make as we'll have a lot to do with all the party preparations.
Bottlegreen have lots of food and drink recipes on their website (www.bottlegreendrinks.com) including some yummy cocktails. I'll be featuring a few cocktail recipes on my blog and here are the first two. I might just have to practise them this weekend!
