Let's Drinks: The Classic Cocktails

I am not a big drinker and I do not like beers, it's the flavour, and the fact that I can get a belly for drinking beers just turn me off. I  may drink one beer when I hang out with my co-worker but for me the real scene,  for after work lime used are the cocktails and mocktails. I can drinks two, three or four of those and really enjoy them.  I ussuelly try different types of cocktails every time I go out.

Here I have brought three recipes from my husdban collection, he is always collecting drinks recipes for his fuctions, here three of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

All recipes are for a single dink.
