Nothing quite matches the experience of a freshly made cocktail in a buzzing bar. But while everyone’s at home, doing their bit to stamp out COVID-19, there are a few ways you can get your cocktail fix at home. This is a great one for a date night at home or just to level up your night.
Tip: Make a night of it and get dressed up for the occasion – you’ll instantly feel that little bit fancier.
Check out these favourites to get sipping.
