Three great cocktail recipes to get the party started!
We’ve selected three delicious Day of the Dead cocktails that are fun and easy to make.
Starting with a delicious Juan Collins – cousin to the Tom Collins, using tequila instead of gin, next a classic Tequila Sunrise and finally my favourite, a tasty Raspberry Mojito.
