Recipe: The Flamingo


In an attempt to desperately cling onto summer, we embraced one of the last hot days of the year and made a cocktail to go with it! We realise the vodka is hilariously large, don't worry it's not all going in!


You will need: 
vodka
orange juice
two heaped teaspoons of sugar
a good handful of any berries (we used frozen because they're cheap but fresh are good too)
peach schnapps
lemonade
ice


Firstly, add your berries to a blender


Pour in enough orange juice to cover the berries


Add a little sugar depending on your sweet tooth, we added two teaspoons. Blend together.


Fill a jug with ice then sieve the blended berry mixture into it


This drink is best served extra cold so make sure you have plenty of ice!


Add three shots of vodka to the jug


Then add three shots of peach schnapps


Add around 300ml orange juice



Top up with lemonade then give it a good mix.


And you're done! A perfectly pink cocktail for a lazy summer afternoon.
