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: 
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

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.
