Fancy a refreshing, delicious and guilt-free cocktail? Want to combine your two greatest loves - enjoying yourself and reading Handbag.com? Then look no further than our official Handbag Blue Gin and Orange Cocktail designed exclusively for us by expert mixologist and Creative Director at All About the Cocktail, Charlie McCarthy.
Charlie told us, "It was important for me to capture the essence of Handbag.com and evoke a powerful flavour combination with this seductive concoction. Blue cocktails are back. Big time!"
Yay, it's so 80s meets Sex and the City. We love it!
Charlie made sure there was no added sugar or sweet liquids to cut back on pesky calories. All the sweetness comes from the vitamin C and antioxidant-rich lychee juice. Result.
Charlie added, "It is exciting and stylish, with interesting and modern ingredients – just like the website with its content for the stylish, contemporary woman. The twist of orange represents the twist in the articles – no two are ever the same so there's always something different to read."
Aaahhh schucks...Charlie you're making us blush! Give it a try for yourself with the recipe below;
