We’re all suffering the effect of the current recession, but that doesn’t mean that you have to stop indulging in the little things that make you happy.  Like cocktails? Keep having them.  But instead of spending an eye-watering 3-4k on a drink, buy the ingredients yourself and make it at home, genius!  A friend who understood my viewpoint gave me a cocktail shaker this Christmas which I have been putting to use.  You know, to make sure her gift doesn’t go unused…!

Anyway, one of my favourite drinks is the Amaretto Sour, super easy to make and using only a few ingredients it’s a great drink to serve when you have friends over, or when you’re home at the weekend!  Best of all is super low calorie with only 190 calories per glass.
