It’s summer so let’s raise a Glass:  How to make a vintage cocktail

Refreshing and stimulating, let’s raise a glass this summer and get making vintage cocktails!



The first classic cocktail is the sweet and sour taste of the Daiquiri.  So here we go…

50ml of white rum

20ml of freshly squeezed lime juice

2 teaspoons of icing sugar

To garnish a slice of lime

Shake all the ingredients with some ice then sieve into a pre-chilled glass.



Vodka Martini

There is such an array of ways to make a vodka martini, the possibilities are endless.  Have a go and experiment.

60ml of Vodka

10ml of Vermouth


Pour over ice and garnish.  Enjoy!


No vintage cocktail would be complete without the Pina Colada – I know I can’t help but sing the song too!


50ml rum

100ml pineapple juice

25 ml coconut milk

25ml double cream

Pineapple wedge to garnish


Blend all ingredients together with some ice and serve!
