We’re not saying one of the good things that came out of sitting at home, and endlessly Pinterest-ing is that we came out DIY kings and queens—the facts are! Be it whipping Dalgona coffees, baking banana breads, or if you dared, sourdough bread, we’ve definitely added new skills to our work-at-home portfolio.
So here’s helping you flex that ‘folio some more with a few DIY cocktails that basically bring the bar home. Scroll on.
Cocktail #1 – Cosmopolitan ft. Absolut Vodka
Can’t ever go wrong with a classic Cosmo!
All you need is – 50ml Absolut Vodka, 50ml cranberry juice, 1 tbsp lime juice
Shake it hard et voila! You just aced your first cocktail.
Cocktail #2 – Gin & Tonic ft. Hendricks Gin
We say Gin, you say Tonic! Isn’t that how it goes…
All you need is – 60ml Hendricks Gin, 1 (freshly squeezed) lime, approx 90ml tonic
Pour it in that order in a glass filled with lots of ice, stir, and garnish if you like (we recommend a slice of cucumber or tangerine).

Cocktail #4 – Cuba Libre ft. Bacardi Rum
An elevated rum and coke, if you please.

One of the oldest, and the best!
