Birthday Cocktails

With my birthday this week I thought it was only fitting to feature some simple and delish cocktail recipes that I made to celebrate. 



Feeling 22 (the necessary nod to the Taylor Swift anthem that will define the next 12 months): It’s kind of like a mojito/fruit punch combo with the party starter tequila joining in! 
– 1 shot white tequila (or vodka if that’s your poison!) 
– ½ shot triple sec 
– ½ shot peach schnapps 
– 1 tbsp fresh lemon/lime juice 
– 2 strawberries, chopped 
– Mint (optional) 
– Soda water 
I love the fruity freshness of this one! I started with muddling the strawberries and mint in the glass with a fork to release the flavours. Then add the alcohols, juices and top with soda water (or lemonade if you want it sweeter). Stir and enjoy! 
Feeling 22 on the left, a fishbowl concoction on the right featuring Malibu, midori and blue curaçao. 
Not quite cake: The sweetness of cake in cute nip! 
– ½ shot whipped cream vodka (you can use cake flavour if you have that instead) 
– ½ shot hazelnut liqueur 
– Whipped cream (optional)


I couldn’t abandon cake completely, this shot and a cupcake make the perfect pairing! 
So simple, just pour them in to a shot-glass and top with whipped cream! To give them that birthday feel I dipped the rim of the shot-glass in melted dark chocolate and sprinkles earlier on and let that set. 
In all honesty, the best part of being a part time bartender (in the comforts of my own home) is the decorations! We all love a drink that tastes good, but you are really going to make all your insta followers jealous when the pics come out looking damn fine. So get creative – pick brightly coloured drinks, sugar coat dem glasses and pile on the toppings, have fun! 
Let us know your creative concoctions, I love trying new flavour combos! 
Much love from down under, 
Taylor xx
