Shaken or Stirred?

Its cocktail season, and I couldn't be happier.
Any excuse for a cocktail and I am there quicker than Winnie the Pooh is to a hunny pot. OK bad analogy, but cocktails are my thang.
Apologies for the use of 90s' slang, but I cannot tell you how much I love sipping one by the pool, with my girls, heck, just about anywhere. 
OK so sometimes its not even about the booze, I said sometimes. I think I'd drink just about anything if it was in a pretty sugar crusted glass, with a stirrer and pop-up umbrella!

My fav? The cosmopolitan, without a doubt!

What's your favourite?

Cocktails bring calories though right? I know in the US you guys have SkinnyGirl which is awesome, but here we don't have such a thing, or do we? Anyone? Am I missing out on something here? 

On holiday anything goes, but when I'm trying to slim down i.e. now. I stick to my mocktails.
On occasion I my sneak some vodka in, but for now I'm being good, so mocktails it is.



I made these this weekend and they are amazing.
Try them out on your girlfriends, I'm sure they won't be disappointed.
Maybe surprise them and add a splash of vodka......

I love a margarita. Seeing as the cocktail version is just lemon juice and tequilla though, I'n not sure the virgin version would be very successful! xx
