Bonfire Night Cocktails

One of the downsides of parenting is that you hardly ever get anytime to go out. Thus myself and the husband have to content ourselves with our film night on a Saturday where we strive to watch a new Blu-Ray, have a nice dinner and a glass of wine or a cocktail. Any excuse really for a nice cocktail, I like a Cosmopolitan, but I’m keen to try out new ones.

I’ve recently been trying Midori which is a melon liqueur, they kindly sent me some recipes especially for Bonfire Night. I have posted these below:

Toffee Apple

MIDORI
1 part
Cognac
1 part
Squeeze of Fresh Lemon
Top with Apple Cider

Pour ingredients over ice into a glass, and gently stir. This smooth cocktail is the
perfect accompaniment to any Bonfire Night bash. If you’re feeling adventurous why
not garnish with toffee apple slices?

Bombfire Night Shotail

MIDORI
1 part
Dark Rum
1 part
Orange Juice 1 part

To make this simple ‘shotail’ pour the ingredients carefully into a shot glass and enjoy
the explosion of colourful fruity flavours!

I cant wait to give them a go. If you don’t have any yummy Midori, pop a sparkler in your cup of coffee with a drop of Baileys, you can imagine you are having a special Cocktail…

Midori is stocked by Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s and is available in 70cl and 50cl sizes. Guide retail price is £9.34 to £14.85.

I did not receive anything for posting this, I just happen to like cocktails and I’m sharing the love!

  1. Those sound yummy! I have to admit that I'm tempted to smuggle a hip flash of sloe gin to the fireworkds display – anything to keep out the chill (and deal with the MIL visit…!)
