Hen’s Party Cocktails
Hosting a Hen’s Party? Then make it one to remember with some tasty cocktails for everyone to enjoy.
We’ve done the, ahem, “hardwork”, tasting and trialing them, so you don’t have to!
We’ve also created this Cocktail Menu, so your guests will know what they are drinking. Let the fun begin!
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BORROWED AND SOMETHING BLUE!
SOMETHING OLD - CLASSIC MARTINI
It’s tough to go wrong with a Classic Martini
- 60mls vodka or gin
- 1 tbsp dry vermouth
- Olive to garnish
- Stir the gin or vodka, dry vermouth and a little ice together or put them in a cocktail shaker to combine.
- Strain into a chilled martini glass. Serve with an olive on a cocktail stick or a twist of lemon peel.
SOMETHING NEW – RASPBERRY MOCKTAIL
Mocktails are becoming more and more popular as people choose non-alcoholic beverages over other drinks. Also serving a non-alcoholic beverage is the responsible thing to do.
- 8 frozen raspberries
- ¼ lime
- 10 mint leaves
- Sparkling water
- Place raspberries, lime and mint into a glass
- Muddle together for about 1 minute to release the juice from the lime and raspberries, and the flavour from the mint. If you don’t have a muddler, use the back of a wooden spoon or similar
- Top with sparkling water and stir gently
- Add ice and garnish
SOMETHING BORROWED – APEROL SPRITZ
We’re saying this one is ‘borrowed’ as there is very little you have to do to create this. Just pour from three separate bottles, and viola, the perfect, refreshing drink!
- 100ml Aperol
- 150ml Prosecco
- Soda to top up
- Put a couple of cubes of ice into 2 glasses and add a 50 ml measure of Aperol to each, and the Prosecco and then top up with soda.
SOMETHING BLUE – SAPPHIRE ALIPNE
A blue cocktail is certainly striking, and this one is as tasty as it looks.
- 30 mlsgin
- 30 mls blue curaçao liqueur
- 30 mlspeach schnapps
- Orange twist, for garnish
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour over the blue curacao, gin and peach schnapps
- Shake well and strain into a glass
