EASY TO MAKE COCKTAILS




I think we have all been there with our girlfriends on a Friday night trying to make the most intense cocktails you have ever seen to it ending up like slush in a cup. Especially with all of the fiddly ingredients, it can start to add up in price and that 'cheap Friday night in' didn't end up so cheap. You may as well have gone out for 2 for 1 cocktails at your local bar! Well I recently discovered Echo Falls new Feeling Fruity range and I'm serious loving them. Alone as wine they are delicious enough but they are fantastic for making some Summer cocktails with. Especially as they are £5.49 a bottle!

My two favourite are the White peach & Mango and Raspberry & Cassius! Usually I don't drink red but this was just so delicious! While they are fruity and light, they are still pretty lethal so make sure you drink responsibly. The two cocktail recipes I'm loving are below with all ingredients!
