Cocktail Tasting Evening!

What’s a fun thing to do on Sunday night? Lounge about hoping Monday morning won’t come round or try making cocktails? Well that’s what me and my Mom did!

Since turning 18 last year I’ve found a love for cocktails, especially purple rains. Me and my Mom both love buying cans of cocktails from Asda but I thought i’d buy some ingredients to have a home-made cocktail evening and I picked 3 recipies off various different websites, mainly all found through Pinterest.

All you need for this are cocktail glasses (or normal glasses if you don’t have cocktail ones), alcohol, various fruit juices, fruit slices and ice if you like! Don’t think you need to go out and buy cocktail shakers because you really don’t!

The first recipe, named Ocean Breeze, is made with a few different ingredients taken from here.

  • Vodka- 25ml
  • Cranberry Juice- 62ml
  • Pineapple Juice- 62ml
  • Blue curacao liquer- half an oz
  • Lime slices & ice cubes (optional)

Still keeping with the theme of ‘breeze’, I found one named Tropical Bay Breeze, taken from the same website as the Ocean Breezehere. Most of the ingredients are the same too so you can just reuse what you didn’t when making the Ocean Breeze!

  • Pineapple juice- 50ml
  • 100ml cranberry juice
  • Grenadine
  • Coconut Malibu Rum- 25ml
  • Ice cubes (optional)
  • If you want to make a garnish; pineapple, cherry & orange

A recipe me and my Mom have kind of made up ourselves is for a purple rain! 

  • 2 shot glasses of blue curacao
  • 2 shot glass of cherry sourz
  • Top up with lemonade

  1. I love a good cocktail but don’t drink in the house enough to buy all the spirits to make my own! It’s a great idea for when you’re having people round though, hope you enjoyed all the ones you made!

  2. ooooh its always lovely to make your own! Glad you had a lovely time doing it too. Wish I had enough of a reason to buy all the alcohol to occasionally make my own but just cant justify it haha! but cocktails are my go-to alcholic drink 🙂 a pornstar martini is lovely, have you tried it? xx

  3. I love a good cocktail! Unfortunately I hate fizzy drinks so Purple Rain is not for me but I would certainly give the other ones a go!

  4. this looks absolutely fun to do, I should try it out with my mum sometime – she’s not a big fan of alcohol, but I think she might think a little differently about this one! xx

  5. I love a good cocktail making session! My favourite when I started drinking was Fruity Sl*t – jager, peach schnapps and cranberry juice – fabulous but lethal! #DrinkResponsibly!
