When you get an email asking if you would like to receive ingredients to make a cocktail, the answer is a no brainer really. Everything arrived with perfect timing, at the end of a busy week and the start of an even busier weekend.
The cocktail was rum based with the addition of mint, ginger and lime - think Mojito spiced with ginger. As a bit of a twist, instead of being topped up with ginger ale or soda, Appletiser is used.
Myself and the husband soon down a jug of this fruity and refreshing cocktail, which is definitely going to be a popular choice this summer - bye bye Pimms, hello Gold Fever.
