This bank holiday weekend we’re sharing a few of our fan favourite cocktails for you to try at home.

No cocktail equipment? No problem! Did you know that your kitchen is already a haven for cocktail making equipment?

Have a rummage through your presses and get shakin’ with us.

Your Jam Jar saves the day again! You can use the flat part of the lid as your strainer. Take off the ring part, offset the flat jar lid so there is a crack that will let liquid through as you pour while holding back the ice.

Measuring spoons and cups you already have in your kitchen work perfectly.
