Honey Peach & Lime Cocktail.


- written in collaboration with Hayes and Jarvis.

Apparently the UK's favourite cocktail is the Pina Colada (see the top 15 here!)
and I must say I'm partial to a combination of pineapple and coconut every once in a while too. Number 8 on the list is a Long Island Iced Tea, which I haven't had since I was about 19 and all I remember from that night is a hazy mist descending very quickly - needless to say it was really quite strong! 


Hayes and Jarvis challenged me to make one of my favourite cocktails and although I don't really have a favourite, my boyfriend and I spent our rainy Saturday night raiding our cupboards to come up with this...
  • Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey 
  • Fizzy peach
  • Orange 
  • Lime 
  • Cherries 
  • Ice
I'm sure there's a real cocktail that someone far more talented than us has carefully crafted that is like this, but we didn't follow a particular recipe. It's just a splash of whiskey over some ice, a chunk of lime & orange and topped up with some fizzy peach. The cherry was a bit of an unnecessary addition, but we couldn't resist! We don't drink often, but I think it's safe to say we'll be making this again!

Do you have a favourite cocktail or mocktail?


P.S. My first "All Aboard" advertiser is Sunny Sweet Pea & she's pretty great!

  16. This sounds gorgeous! I can't decide on a favourite cocktail - I love a good Mojito, but then again, anything with rum is a winner for me!
