Last summer I was invited down to Gabbis Head which was Benefit’s girly pub for the World Cup by Funkin Cocktails. As it was hot and right in the middle of World Cup fever, the lovely people from Funkin decided it was a good idea to get together and make a cocktail or two. Who was I to disagree with them.
In the middle of pure pinkdome we were given a masterclass on how to make the perfect cocktail using Funkin. We made Strawberry Daiquiris, Pina Coladas as well as Funkin’s own drink, Brazilian Passion. The drinks were pretty delicious and refreshing which of course made it a perfect beverage for the summer. They were very easy to make – all we had to do was fill a glass with ice, add a measure of rum, top with a Funkin Cocktail mixer, stir and serve. We finished it off by garnishing the glass with a strawberry and rimming the edge with sugar.
