Horchata is a traditional Mexican drink, which the Mayans and Aztecs called this the drink of the gods. Here it is made even more heavenly with the addition of rum.
A refreshing margarita, made by mixing together water, tequila, limeade and triple sec, then freezing the mixture until a slushy-consistency is reached. Enjoy at your next dinner party.
This Bloody Mary recipe is a little more complex than others, but the result is really worth it. It needs to sit for at least 8 hours, so plan to make it ahead of time. It's refreshing and is the perfect summer drink to be enjoyed all year round.
This is a wonderfully refreshing alcoholic drink. It's a slushy fruity drink, which is diluted with lemon-lime fizzy drink. Enjoy this summer drink anytime of the year.
A fun party treat, jellies are given a coconut and rum alcoholic twist. These treats are not for the kids!

These margaritas require a little forward planning, but the result is really worth it. Fresh, homemade limeade is stirred with tequila and orange liqueur. The perfect summer drink to enjoy all year round.
Amazing, Turkish delight flavoured, pink coloured vodka. Takes 2 weeks to make but so-o-o-o worth it!
A refreshingly cool frozen daiquiri recipe. Lemonade concentrate, limeade concentrate, water and rum are frozen, then broken up and served. Wonderful for a warm summer's day.
This homemade eggnog, spiked with rum and whisky, will fill you with glee. Perfect at Christmas.
These blueberry martinis are the hit of any party! Easy to make, but the key is the homemade blueberry vodka that requires 2 weeks to properly infuse. After that, it's smooth and fruity sailing with a splash of lime juice!
This champagne cocktail recipe is perfect for Christmas or New Year's. Place in a punch bowl with pineapple pieces, and ladle into champagne flutes (with or without the pineapple, I prefer without).
Crémant, or French sparkling wine, replaces the pricier champagne in a traditional mimosa.
Sangrita ('little blood') is the favourite tequila chaser in Mexico, and loads of fun for your next Mexican fiesta. Freshly squeezed lime and orange juice is essential to this recipe if you want the best results.
This is a delicious blended ice drink, which is perfect for the summer. Lemonade concentrate is frozen with orange juice, tea, sugar, whisky and water. It's then scooped into a glass and topped with ginger ale.
The blackcurrants are put directly into high-percentage alcohol straight after picking and then the liqueur is ready to finish being made around Christmastime. Only our most special guests get to taste the liqueur - and then only thimblefuls... pure, as kir (with dry white wine), kir royale (with fizzy wine or champagne) or over vanilla ice cream - heavenly! I can't give exact amounts in the recipe as that all depends on how many fresh blackcurrants you have.
This cocktail is very refreshing. You will especially enjoy it at the end of a hot summer day. As for me, I can drink it even during the winter because I like to have a cocktail after a long day at work. Mojito is my favourite cocktail. It is also possible to use a blender to make this recipe.
I just returned from Cuba, and to extend the trip a bit, I love trying to recreate some of the dishes and cocktails I had there. Here's an example! Beware, it seems very sweet, but if you drink it in the sun, you will definitely realise it contains alcohol! For a smoother drink, use a blender instead of a cocktail shaker.
This is a delicious chilled cocktail. A sweetened and citrus flavoured vodka is frozen, then blended with lemon-lime fizzy drink. It's the perfect summer drink to enjoy all year long.
We had this cocktail at our friends' house - it was so good that I had to add the recipe for everyone to enjoy! Drink sensibly, it's alot of booze in one go! This amount serves one.
