Marilyn dancing

It’s Cocktail O’clock

 

We’ve got that Friday feeling and even though the weather isn’t looking too promising, we still want a taste of summer to get us set for the long evenings this weekend. We discovered this refreshing little tipple on the Spoon Fork Bacon blog. Tried and tested, we think this is the perfectly refreshing drink to put the zing back into your Friday evening. This twist on the classic gin & tonic is as super and looks as delicious as it tastes. We guarantee you’ll be impressing your garden party guests with this glass of summer, when the sun eventually makes a reappearance.
