**Monday Club – Red Hot Cocktails!**

Ease your Monday blues with these Red-Hot cocktails, we’ve even provided the recipes if you’re feeling especially adventurous!

Cosmopolitan 
Sexy, Sophisticated and super sweet! The cranberry juice in this cocktail is traditionally added just for a mere hint of pink, but you can add extra to give it a sweeter touch.

1. 37.5ml Vodka

2. 25ml Cointreau

3. 25ml Fresh lime juice

4. 15ml Cranberry juice

Orange peel for garnish, shake or stir ingredients over ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Strawberry Daiquiri

One of my favourites, and so easy to make at home! For an especially hot day why not try adding the ingredients with crushed ice to a blender for a frozen Strawberry Daiquiri! To make your own sugar syrup simply add hot water and sugar together and stir until you get a good syrupy consistency.

1. 50ml white rum

2. 25ml fresh lime juice

3. 12.5ml sugar syrup

4. 5-7 strawberries

Strawberry to garnish, shake ingredients over ice or add ingredients to a blender with crushed ice. If you prefer a smoother finish, you can fine strain the drink into your glass to remove pulp.

Singapore Sling

The traditional Singapore version contains fruit juices, making it taste totally different to other gin cocktails – a perfect choice for the summer!

1. 30ml gin

2. 15ml Benedictine

3. 30ml cherry brandy or liqueur (optional)

4. 30ml orange juice

5. 30ml pineapple juice

6. 30ml fresh lime juice

7. Dash of angostura bitters

Garnish with a cherry and orange slice, shake all the ingredients over ice and pour into a glass over cubed ice.
