Ready to get to grips with Mexico’s most popular drink? A traditional margarita is a simple three-ingredient serve of tequila, triple sec and lime juice. The Dead Man's Fingers tequila reposado, aged in Bourbon barrels, gives the cocktail a smooth and smoky flavour. Once you've mastered the classic, why not mix things up with a herb garden margarita by adding basil, mint and thyme to your cocktail shaker. Flip the photo to find the recipe.
The sweet, tropical flavours of this passion fruit martini come from Absolut Swedish Vanilia Vodka, passion fruit pulp and pineapple juice. Don't forget to serve with a shot of prosecco on the side! For a twist, try a raspberry passion martini. Adding fresh raspberries to your shaker turns the classic drink a blushing pink and gives it a satisfying tang. Flip to find the recipe.

Blitz the cocktail ingredients together with chunks of frozen fruit for a chilled evening tipple with a slushie-like consistency. The subtle notes of vanilla and cacao in the Santiago de Cuba 8-year-old rum complement the tropical flavours perfectly. Flip to find the recipe.
