6 Cocktails to Celebrate World Cocktail Day

It’s not often we need an excuse to make a cocktail but given restaurants and pubs are starting to open again – and we’re only a couple of weeks away from being able to socialise inside (in groups of six) – we definitely think a celebration is in order. While it’s been great dressing like an eskimo for dinner, dodging rain showers and battling for a table next to a heater, we’re very ready to take socialising back inside – or at least have the option.

So dust off your home bar, choose five cocktail-loving friends, grab yourself a couple of bottles of Caleño Light & Zesty, and Dark & Spicy, and have some fun. Like with any dish, don’t be afraid to improvise a little and switch up ingredients if there’s something you’re missing – be creative!
