I have a friend who’s holidaying in Mexico at the moment. Every time I flick through Instagram she’s sampling a fabulous cocktail or perusing some brightly coloured, rustic homewares. This week in drizzly London I’ve been living out my tropical fantasies through her images, so now that the sun has come out I’ll recreate one of her cocktails so we can all just pretend for a moment we’re lounging in a hammock too.
1 shot of vodka (we used Waitrose own brand, cause, we’re posh like that)
1 shot of Aperol
1 tablespoon of blended strawberries
A squeeze of lime
Strips of lime zest, to garnish
Blend the strawberries, pour it into a cocktail shaker (or a jar if you’re fancy like us) add the booze, lime and ice and shake. Pour into a tumbler and top up with soda. Sprinkle over your lime zest.
