TUTTI FRUTTI COCKTAIL RECIPES FOR THE BUSH

We’re going away for a long-weekend in the bush and it’s self catering. There’s a lot of planning to do. What to wear? What to braai? And what to drink! And what better way to watch the sun go down over the bushveld than with a wonderful fruity cocktail in hand. So I did some research and these are my favourite recipes. Easy to make, with minimal ingredients for our bush weekend. Give them a try and let me know what you think.
