London Cocktail Week – Make Your Own Pineapple Mojito

The P-Ho Diaries Pineapple Mojito

This week saw London took over by London Cocktail Week. Cocktail week involves a whole list of bars across London offering cocktails for just £4, various events and of course lots of cocktails. I got involved on Monday night, when I stayed the night at the Novotel Hotel which was one of the sponsors of cocktail week and I also attended a cocktail masterclass at the Doubletree Hilton hotel. The course was entitled ‘A Masterclass in Jail’ as the hotel itself has old cells in the bar. So Danny and I had the chance to learn and also carry out our own cocktail making. We learnt the classic cocktails, Mojito, Martini, Bellini and of course every girl’s favourite a Cosmopolitan, which was actually harder than I thought to make, let’s say I’m not the best and lighting an orange peel on fire!

However as Cocktail Week comes to an end I thought I’d have a go at my new-found skills I’d just learnt and try out a Pineapple Mojito from the cocktail book we were given at the masterclass. Get some ingredients and give it a go along with me, go on!
