4 Easy Cocktails to Make at Home from Studio Bar at K West.

With Dry January a distant (and bad!) memory, it’s time to celebrate the return to boozy dinners and cocktail nights in February.

Michal Golecki, Head Mixologist at Studio Bar at K West Hotel & Spa advises on his top four cocktails that look impressive but are quick and easy to shake up with ingredients you already have in your fridge at home.

Vodka: Raspberry Caipiroska:

Michal says: "The Caipiroska cocktail is a Russian twist on the well-known Brazilian cocktail caipirinha”.

Ingredients: 50ml Vodka; 4 lime wedges; 2 tablespoon Sugar; crushed ice, 3 raspberries

Method: Muddle all of the ingredients together, and pour over ice into a rock glass or tumbler. Garnish with a couple of raspberries. If you like your cocktails on the sweeter side, you can always top up with lemonade.

Gin: Elderflower G&T:

Michal says: “This delicately coloured, refreshing take on the classic gin and tonic makes this the perfect beverage for spring”.

Ingredients: 50ml Gin; 25ml Elderflower cordial, 15ml fresh-squeezed Lime juice, tonic.

Rum: The Cuba Libre a Casa:

Ingredients: 50ml Dark Rum; Coca-Cola; 1 Lime

Method: Squeeze the lime into a highball glass over ice. Add the double shot of rum and then fill the glass with Coca-Cola. Stir and add a quarter of the lime.

Tequila: Tequilita Sunrise:

Michal says: “The Tequilita Sunrise is easy to mix up at a moment's notice, beautiful to look at, and deliciously fruity”.

  7. I'd try the Tequilita Sunrise - not keen on tonic so that put me off the G&T! ;)

  8. I lie the idea of these cocktails as you have a limited amount of ingredients , which means easy to get and not too expensive.
