Galway Girl Cocktail
Just because you're stuck at home with no sign of a social life doesn't mean you can't have fun! As we edge ever closer towards spring and signs of new life, there's nothing better than sipping on a fruity, refreshing cocktail. Here's the lowdown on how to make the delicious Galway Girl cocktail from The Liquour Lounge, with a recipe straight from the source... why not give it a go?!
35ml of your favourite Gin (we suggest Nora's Irish Gin)
4 Fresh Raspberries
20ml Fresh Lemon Juice
10ml Sugar Syrup (Teaspoon Sugar)
Splash of Prosecco
1. Pour all ingredients into a glass except the Prosecco (or a cocktails shaker instead of a glass if you have it).
2. Muddle with the Fresh Raspberries.
3. Pour into a tall glass and top with crushed ice (Shake mixture with ice first if you have a cocktail shaker).
4. Finish off by the topping the drink with a dash of Prosecco, garnish with some fresh fruit, edible flowers or sprig of rosemary.. then Enjoy!
