Cocktails are great for any night out (or in really!) but New Years Eve always warrants a little extra effort and sparkle! With Bub only being a couple of weeks old alcohol is still out for me unfortunately however I couldn’t resist putting together this list of delicious cocktails together.
My only condition is that you have one for me!
Black Lamington from Drink Melbourne

Fresh or freeze dried raspberries to garnish
Chill all ingredients. Add all ingredients, except garnish, to a mixing glass and stir gently. The mixture should foam up nicely. Pour into a tumbler and spoon over remaining foam. Garnish with raspberries. Serve with a lamington or two on the side.
