While many of us would most likely be making our way to the local this bank holiday weekend, the lockdown put an end to that plan.

However, these recipes will make missing out on the pubs a bit easier.

We have gathered the recipe for some cocktails, all of which are very easy to make. You also won't require many ingredients.

If you don't have a cocktail shaker at home, you can also use a clean jar.

Sex On The Beach

Ingredients: Vodka (50ml), peach schnapps (25ml), orange juice (50ml), cranberry juice (50ml).

A classic and it's very easy to throw together. Just combine the vodka, peach schnapps, and orange juice with ice in the cocktail shaker.

Put into a long glass with ice and top it off with some cranberry juice. Simples.


Whiskey Sour

Ingredients: Whiskey (50ml), juice of one lemon, lemon zest, 1/2 egg white, sugar (tbsp).
