My Top 5 Cocktail recipes

I recently discovered a fantastic, calorific, American Facebook group called the Tipsy Bartender which have some fantastic recipes which I have been dying to try with friends (as it seems silly to buy a whole bottle of something only for the drink to be made once) so I thought why not make a list of my favourites from the channel?

Now I know it’s only Thursday and it’s not quite party night but if like me, you like to plan ahead of time, maybe today is the day you decide to pick up a bottle of rum or champers to make one of these recipes as a dessert or aperitif for a dinner party.

Warning for chocolate fans, the martini looks damn tasty.
