I love a good afternoon

Margarita!

1-2 shots tequila
1/4 cup of blood orange juice
1/4 cup of lime juice
1tbs sugar or sugar syrup

The best part about making a Margarita, I think, is salt-frosting the glass. Run a lime or lemon wedge around the edge of a cocktail glass and then dip it onto a plate of salt. Margaritas can be made with a drink shaker, or a blender or some vigorous stirring of all the ingredients at once with ice. This is a very versatile drink, with many combinations possible. Try coconut and pineapple, strawberry and kiwi, pomegranate, any juice that takes your fancy. It is also perfect frozen, just blend the juice with crushed ice, or half freeze the juice first.

This drink tastes better than its name:

Sex on the beach

1 1/2 shot of vodka
1 shot peach schnapps
1/4 cup of pineapple juice
1/4 cup cranberry juice

Shake all ingredients well with ice and strain. Pour onto fresh crushed ice. Alternatively (if you don’t have fancy drink making equipment) try and make your own by covering a non-breakable cup with a plate to shake and strain. Or simply stir and serve over ice. Serve with a slice of peach or pineapple.
