Friday Fun: Happy Hour Cocktails!

Friday Fun

Good Afternoon my friends! This summer, Stone’s Ginger Wine is encouraging the nation to declare their love for everything ginger! 2017 is officially the year of the Gingervidual and this summer, and as a strawberry blonde myself, I’m totally on board! But even if you don’t have a hint of ginge, you can still be a Gingervidual in your heart, it’s all about standing up for what you believe in and not conforming to the norm, just like  Stone’s Ginger Wine who have been embracing their ginger roots since 1740.

Happy Hour Cocktails

Stone’s Ginger Wine has partnered with one of London’s top mixologists to create a range of refreshing summer cocktails, which capture the essence of what it means to be a Gingervidual in a glass. I’m pretty sure there is something for everyone in this list and they are so easy to make, that even I was able to muddle my way through (there’s a little cocktail pun in there, for the enthusiasts amongst you!). Wanna make yourself a friday night cocktail… just keep scrollin’! PS. The cocktail I made for the photos is the The Ginger Maverick.
