Summer Cocktails: 4 Step Strawberry Daiquiri

Strawberry Daiquiri

So this Friday cocktail thing is becoming a bit of a habit. Not that I’m complaining of course, the best part of posting cocktail recipes is the testing. So I was going to post over the weekend but then I read that today is National Daiquiri day and what could be better on NDD than a strawberry daiquiri, right?
So since it’s hot, hot, hot outside (isn’t it fabulous?! there’s no moaning about the sunshine allowed here on this blog) I think you owe it to yourself to go home, get in to your summer clothes, get outside and enjoy one of these icy cold, rum infused drinks…(seriously, you work hard, you deserve a daiquiri or three).

Also, note that if you leave the rum out then you’ve basically got a strawberry slush puppy – great for kids or for anyone who doesn’t drink.

Espresso Martini – Recipe

If you’re looking for something a little more sophisticated to drink over the holidays then I whole heartedly recommend the Espresso Martini. It’s also a great drink to make if you’re having a party as you can make quite a batch of it.

What you need:

Equal measures of:

Butterscotch schnapps
Chilled Espresso coffee
Tia Maria (or any other coffee liqueur) 

Simply pour it all in to a jug, stir, add ice and serve.

It’s quite strong (as it’s mostly pure alcohol) and the coffee does give it a kick so be warned you can’t drink too many of these!
