DIY - Pretty party drinks

Thursday, 28 February 2013

No party is complete without a good drink so I prepared two simple cocktail ideas that went down a treat. This rose sryup is lovely, I thought it might be too sweet but it was just right to start the proceedings. I mixed mine with Vodka but Gin would work just as well, for non drinkers - just leave out the spirits.
 I garnished with sugared rose petals I made using this recipe. I think the recipe worked out better than mine I was a bit slap dash in my preparation but everyone got the idea and they did look very pretty.
 I was on a bit of a roll with flavoured syrups so made a fresh raspberry and ginger version. I thought it would be really hard to make but it was so simple; Mix one cup of granulated sugar, one cup of water, a cup and a half of raspberries (mine were frozen) and some ginger to taste (I used about three pinches of pre-cut from a jar). Boil in a pan for about 8 mins on a high heat until the raspberries break down, simmer gently for another 5 mins. Strain and leave to cool. Serve over lots of ice with soda (add Vodka or Gin if required). 


  1. Both of these look delicious! Will be trying that ginger and raspberry ASAP!
