Hi all, I’m back at last!! I have been wanting to for ages but now I have been forced into it I thought I should get right back in it!
I fell off the side of a kerb, in true blonde style as my mother says, and badly injured my back. I literally haven’t been able to move for three days. I’m just starting to go stir crazy so today I have been adding new products to my website and eagerly getting through my enquiries for new brides.
I am going to share one of my new products with you today but first I thought I would share a lovely cocktail recipe which is easy to make and can be made whilst all you girls are getting ready for a fab hen night.
The Raspberry Daiquiri
There is a tartness and sweetness that fuse together just so to make this a beautiful, tasty cocktail.
50 ml light rum
25ml lime juice
2 spoons caster sugar
Add 5 raspberries, saving one for garnish, along with the caster sugar into a mixing glass and muddle into a paste.
This means to press the ingredients against the glass until it breaks down into a paste therefore releasing the flavours so they mix with the alcohol better. If you don’t have a muddler the end of a wooden spoon will be OK as will the end of a heavy butter knife.
Add the rum and the lime and fill the glass with ice.
Pour into the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
Double strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with raspberry and any other decoration you wish!
Enjoy them with some canapes before you leave on your big night out or if you are enjoying a girls night in.
There are lots of simple recipes on the internet. When I made my cocktails I tried the following recipe from a blog called Wrapped Up In Rainbows and they are just so simple and tasty.
