In my former life, I was a bit of a salted caramel expert, and whilst making A LOT of them over the last couple of years has dimmed my love of the chewy kind, I still seek it out in most other incarnations (the exception being crisps). At this time of year (and most others too), an espresso martini is always a winner, and this recipe makes it all the more seasonally special with the addition of, the admittedly ubiquitous, salted caramel.
My first homemade espresso martini used the recipe from Nigella’s Christmas cookbook, and this version is a complete homage to that - tweaked to capture Salted Caramel in all its glory.Read More
I love Halloween. It's something about the kitsch, fake spookiness and the excuse for a party. And this cocktail, a violet white wine spritzer, is the perfect adult accompaniment to Halloween goings-on. The good thing about this cocktail is not only is it delicious, but it's also absolutely not restricted to Halloween. In fact I've had this at my friend Zoe's house in summer and winter and enjoyed it every time, I'm just annoyed with myself for only now requesting the recipe!Read More
I like to think of this as a 'Congratulations, you've made it to the end of the school holidays' type of cocktail. The end is in sight and, miss them as you will, you definitely deserve a drink. Perhaps it's spending too much time recently in soft play and cinemas which means I'm inspired, yet again, by the idea of a grown-up Slush Puppie. I've been wanting to try frosé (frozen rosé) for some time now, and finally got organised enough to make it happen.Read More
