After a hectic week at work, you deserve a high spirit weekend (pun intended). And, delicious cocktails are a go-to for many of us. No matter if you are looking for a classic cocktail, a punch for a party or an original concoction, there is a cocktail recipe – just a shake, stir or pour away – for everyone. Whether you like gin, tequila, or whiskey, you would agree that a fruity spin makes our favourite cocktails all the more delicious. In case you don’t feel like going out, stir and create the magic of these concoctions at home. Certain cocktails are so firmly placed in the cocktail canon that you must try making them.
