Really great for a party, I first made this for Christmas Eve. Really enjoyed by everyone, although it's probably slight dangerous as I find it very drinkable!!

great drink for a party! Easy to make and is ready in no time. I've served this for Birthdays and Christmas parties and its gone down well every time! As someone else has said, the crushed ice is really a must. I did try it with some bubbly which turned out to be quite potent!

me and the girls loved this drink, went down a bit too easy, wouln't advise drinking it without the crushed though (if you do it's guarantee for a hangover i've learn't my lesson)but would reccommend it.

Pretty amazing you could drink it all not probably not a great idea but flavour is magic

I added sparkling water to this and it was really lovely. Very refreshing and easy (maybe a bit too easy!) to drink.

This is a really simple recipe and tasts fantastic. Great one for a girls get together. Probably the only drawback is its tastes so good you can go on drinking it all night.
