I know a lot of you are probably still lamenting the end of summer, but not me! Summer has it’s advantages; lovely fresh produce, long days, sunshine, and cocktails galore to name a few. But, as much as I love sunshine, I hate the heat. It does not agree with me! The sun may be hibernating more and more as  we delve into autumn and the days are already getting much shorter but in return we get crisp air with cooler days and colourful foliage. And we may start saying goodbye to the strawberries and peaches of summer, but we can say a big hello to the blackberries and figs of autumn, and not to mention the absolutely gorgeous, warm spices that dominate this season. Yes, I think it’s safe to say that I am big fan out autumn. Especially because it means I can give my favourite summer cocktail an amazing autumn makeover with this delicious Blackberry, Cinnamon and Fig Margarita! Yum!

Whether you’ve been watching Daredevil on Netflix or not, you can’t have missed all the talk about it! Season 2 recently aired and it seems like the whole world has been binge watching it, I know I did! Season 2 introduced a couple of new characters from the comics, one of them being Elektra. I promised this post would be spoiler free so I won’t go into much detail as to why, but I wasn’t that happy with how they handled her characterisation and story arc, so I decided to make a cocktail inspired by all her awesomeness and celebrate her character, in the form of a Mezcal Margarita

Happy Friday guys! It’s the weekend, yay, party time! I’ve been a bit absent this last week, I apologise for that – life got in the way a bit, as it tends to do.

I’m going to take that drooling as a yes 😉
