Sunday fun-day, better than a Monday!

November, December and January; synonymous with Christmas catch us and end of year beverages (did someone say beveragino?). Everyone knows the easiest – and the most fun – way to cure a hangover to start drinking again. In saying that, we’ve rounded up some pretty efficient cocktails that will put a stop to those post-alco-blues. A hangover cocktail list can’t begin without the classic bloody Mary, so let the party begin (again).

Bloody Mary

Makes two

You’ll need:

Large handful of ice

100ml vodka

500ml tomato juice

1 tbsp lemon juice, plus 2 slices to serve

Dash of Worcestershire sauce

Tabasco sauce (to taste)

Pinch of celery salt

1 celery stalks (to serve)

Method:

In a large jug, place the ice. Measure the vodka, tomato juice and lemon juice and pour straight onto the ice. Add three shakes of Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco and a pinch of celery salt. Stir well and then strain into two tall glasses. Top up with fresh ice and add a fresh celery stick and lemon slice.

Suffering in silence spritz

Orange, to garnish

Add the bourbon, gin, honey syrup and bitters into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled. Strain into a glass over fresh ice. Top with the fever tree tonic water and garnish with orange.

Mimosa
