Here Are Some Easy D.I.Y. Cocktails You Can Enjoy At Home!

Missing out on happy hour because of the Coronavirus? Why not make some tasty cocktails yourself instead…

Fortunately for most who appreciate a good drink every now and then, many basic cocktail recipes usually boil down to equal parts of something sugary and acidic citrus, with a shot or two of your favourite liquor. And with all bars in the country now closed for the next few weeks, those of us who would like a nice cocktail during these troubling times will have to come up with an at-home bar solution.

To get you started, here are some tasty and super easy cocktail recipes – that each requires just five ingredients, or less – to help you get started:

  1. Vodka: The Caipiroska

This is a Russian twist on the well-known Brazilian cocktail caipirinha.

Ingredients: 50ml vodka; 4 lime wedges; 2 tablespoon sugar; crushed ice, 3 raspberries

Method: Muddle all of the ingredients together, and pour over ice into a rock glass or tumbler. Garnish with a couple of raspberries. If you like your cocktails on the sweeter side, you can always top up with lemonade.

  1. Gin: Elderflower Gin & Tonic

This delicately coloured, refreshing take on the classic gin and tonic makes this the perfect, refreshing beverage.

Ingredients: 50ml gin; 25ml elderflower cordial, 15ml fresh-squeezed lime juice, tonic water.

Method: Shake ingredients together with ice cubes and strain into a tall glass, top up with tonic. Garnish with a lime wedge.

  1. Rum: The Cuba Libre a Casa

This cocktail simply elevates the run-of-the mill Rum and Coke to a new level of sophistication!

Ingredients: 50ml dark rum; Coca-Cola; 1 lime

Method: Squeeze the lime into a highball glass over ice. Add the double shot of rum and then fill the glass with Coca-Cola. Stir and add a quarter of the lime.

  1. Tequila: Tequila Sunrise

Definitely the easiest mix up at a moment’s notice, plus its also beautiful to look at and deliciously fruity!

Ingredients: 50ml tequila; 50ml orange juice, 10ml grenadine.

Method: Pour the tequila over ice in a tall glass and top with orange juice and add the grenadine. Just add more grenadine for a sweeter flavour and garnish with a slice of orange or grapefruit
