Delicious Alcoholic Blue Cocktail Drink Recipes for Occasions

Simply the Best

If cocktails are one of your drinks of choice when you go out, why not have a go at making them yourself? They are the perfect beverage for a night in, a barbecue in the garden or a party in your home.

As a rule, I barely drink, and right now I am breastfeeding so it will be a long time before I have any alcohol. I don't miss it, but when I've finished breastfeeding, I am looking forward to an ice-cold cocktail in the sun in my garden. Here are some if my favourites.
