Cocktails on the Cheap

We all love a cheeky cocktail now and then, but at $18 a glass it’s just not feasible on a university budget. Don’t you worry though, we have got you covered!


As experienced broke girls who love to drink, cheap cocktails are our specialty.

Whip up this cocktail recipe, invite some friends round and get ready for a fantastic night!

Here is is what you will need:

1 cup of frozen berries

3 tablespoons pimms*

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 bottle lemonade

1 bottle dry ginger ale

1 bottle cheap champagne

*if you don’t want to buy a whole bottle of spirits you can also buy brandy or rum in the mini bar sized bottles.

Mix the berries, sugar and pimms in a food processor. If you are super organised and doing this step ahead of time, the mixture can be thrown straight into the freezer. If you are like us and want to get straight into the drinking, combine the berry mixture, ginger ale, lemonade and champagne in a jug and serve in fancy champagne flutes.



The best bit, with all of that money saved on expensive drinks, you can make a kick ass cheese platter. And let’s be honest, that’s always the best part!


Go on, try the recipe, we know you want to!
