Updated: Jun 24, 2020

During lockdown we have all been raiding the kitchen cupboards to find bits and bobs to create meals and make the most of what we had while it was impossible to get an online order in from supermarkets. We all adapted to making most things from scratch. Thinking outside the box for ingredients.

I took this as an opportunity to make no fuss cocktails. Forget fancy garnishes and exotic fruits. For me its been what easily available ingredients can I use. Here are five cocktails or shall I say locktails using less then five ingredients.
