Sip on a classic ice-cold Dry Martini whilst nibbling a Crostini with Green Olive and Anchovy Tapenade; try a fruity Strawberry Daiquiri with Strawberry, Mango, Basil and Pine Nut Salsa on Baked Tortilla Chips; enjoy a sparkling Lavender French 75 with a Goat’s Cheese and Pink Peppercorn Ball or a Pisco Sour paired with a flavour-packed Pink Grapefruit Ceviche-Style Shrimp Skewer. For the festive season, nothing will impress your guests more than a Clementine Caipirinha served with a melt-in-the-mouth Warm Brie and Cranberry Sauce Puff. From elegant classic drinks, to lip-smacking newer creations, tangy summer treats and sparkling ideas for special occasions, here you’ll find all the inspiration and recipes you need to plan for every event from a stylish pre-dinner tipple with friends to a full-blown cocktail reception.
