In an uncharacteristic moment of foresight, I shot this cocktail months ago and now I’m staring at it longingly, wishing it to return. This gin cocktail is a simple take on a Bees Knees. It’s sharp, sweet and contains honey, lemon, ginger and gin.
THE SUN IS OUT! Time to drink pretty cocktails in the garden and ignore the groaning pile of laundry that’s taking over the bedroom.
Sometimes the prettiest cocktails end up being sickly sweet, but this one is nice and sharp and peppery.
I’m normally not very patriotic, nor particularly bothered about being proud of my Italian roots. But I confess that each March 8th I am a little.
While Italians are not particularly renowned for respecting women, they are very famous for loving them.

Here’s my recipe for hot piratey rum to ease you into the weekend.
If you feel like you need to congratulate yourself for getting to the weekend, make yourself a cocktail! Nothing too taxing mind, just three ingredients stirred together will do.
Here’s a great, simple cocktail that feels very festive and wintery but still feels a bit special.
