Quickies Morning Noon & Night Cocktail Challenge

Posted by denise fletcher on Tuesday, September 28, 2010, In : Giveaways

Any alcohol, liqueur, mixer, juice, garnish or ingredient was allowed. We were looking for a delicious sounding and sexy cocktail - either with a sexy name, sexy or cheeky background story, or a sexy looking presentation, or best of all, ALL THREE!!!

I'm happy to announce the second joint Quickies : Morning, Noon and Night Cooking Challenge with Lazaro Cooks!

Ginger, Lime and Mint Fizz

Posted by on Tuesday, January 12, 2010, In : Drinks

When I was growing up, Brigitte Bardot was the femme du jour and a fixture of St Tropez.  I’ve lost count of the number of Bardot movies I’ve seen but they’ve definitely left their mark. The bright citrus, cherry and spice flavours coupled with the gorgeous blue of this delightful cocktail epitomises to me, the seductive charms of the French Riviera and the ...
