Grant turned 19 last week and he asked me to get him a cocktail set so he could make cocktails at home. I willingly obliged as it meant I then got to ask for cocktails whilst the parents paid for the ingredients. All in all a good deal for me! I bought him this Cocktail Starter Pack from drinkstuff. The recipe book includes plenty of recipes, from the classics to every cocktail imaginable and tips for the well stocked bar.
Ingredients – lime juice, strawberry jam, strawberries, white rum, sugar and grenadine.
Start by adding some grenadine to your glass.
Add a large shot of rum.
Add about a teaspoon of sugar, or more if you have a sweet tooth.
Add a teaspoon of strawberry jam, mix well until the sugar and jam have dissolved.
Now add your lime juice.
Attach the cocktail shaker to the glass and shake!
Open the umbrella if using.
Pour into glass, garnish with strawberry, straw and umbrella.
