I received a bottle of Crabbie’s ginger beer in my latest Degustabox, the Raspberry flavour one, to be exact. I’ve seen a whole lot about ginger beer since it seems to have become popular lately – but as wine is my drink of choice – I’ve never tried it before.
It was Christine’s birthday on Thursday so I thought it would be a great idea to try out some new cocktails. Our ‘cocktails’ are usually just vodka with some orange and cranberry juice. We add a bit of pineapple if we’re feeling really adventurous.
I picked up a few things from Tesco to blindly invent some new drinks. I also invested in another bottle of Raspberry Ginger Beer and two bottles of the Strawberry and Lime one.
Feeling quite creative, I sat on the floor while Lilly blew up balloons to create a master piece.

250 ml Crabbie’s Raspberry Ginger Beer
1 shot Bacaradi Oakheart Spiced Rum
1 shot Vodka
150 ml soda with lime
This was lovely, the lime gave it a lovely after kick. I was surprised that you couldn’t taste the alcohol too much, despite 2 shots of spirits! It is perfect for a summery day as it tastes very refreshing. Well done, me.

I did plan on adding more things to this one, but after I added the two shots and tasted it, I knew perfection had been created and refused to spoil it. This is so lovely, it has that perfect alcohol ‘hit’ as you drink it, it’s very smooth. While the first cocktail was nice, it was more of an alcoholpop compared to this one. We ended up drinking a few more of these! And trouble DID find me the next morning, oh dear.
What was supposed to be a nice, quiet evening in, turned out to be a messy night out when we decided to don some dresses and hit the town at 1am. I’ve more on that tomorrow, along with more pictures of Christine’s birthday – some back tomorrow to see them!
What’s your favourite cocktail?
