Here are three cocktails that are easy to make at home.

1. Cheeky Vimto

This cocktail is super easy to make and tastes super as well. It’s an old student favorite for a reason.
Ingredients: WKD Blue, port (small bottle), vodka (leftovers will do)

Method: Mix 50ml of Port with a bottle of WKD, then add 25ml of your Vodka. That’s it!

2. Jammie Dodger Shot

This one’s not your typical cocktail as it’s more of a shooter. But, it’s the best-tasting shot you will ever put in your mouth!

Ingredients: A bottle of Chambord, double cream, sugar

Method: Fill 3 quarters of the shot glass with Chambord, top it up with cream. Sprinkle a little sugar. Bottoms up!
