The Recipes You’ll Need This World Cocktail Day

The Recipes You'll Need This World Cocktail Day

World Cocktail Day takes place on the 13th of May this year. It marks the day in 1806 when the first definition of a cocktail was published in the New York tabloid ‘The Balance and Columbian Repository’. It was defined as “stimulating liquor, composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters.”

Since this beautiful day, our summer parties, bottomless brunches and nights out have been blessed with the fruity alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) beverages. 

But, times are tough. With bills and the cost of living soaring, even two for one cocktail deals don’t taste as sweet as they used to. With Epoints you can get the savings you deserve on all the ingredients needed to DIY your own cocktails and mocktails.

1. Long Island Iced Tea

To make this cocktail with plenty to share, you’ll need the following ingredients: 

  • 50ml of Vodka
  • 50ml of Tequila
  • 50ml of Rum
  • 50ml of London Dry Gin
  • 50ml of Triple Sec
  • 50ml of lime juice
  • 500ml of Cola
  • Ice

 One great thing about cocktails is that there are not many steps involved. All you have to do is find a big enough container, pour it all together, give it a good mix or a shake with a cocktail shaker and serve!

2. Pornstar Martini

According to The Cocktail Society, the Pornstar Martini is Britain’s favourite cocktail. So there’s no doubt that you’ll all be wanting this recipe. For a single cocktail, you will need:

  • 35ml Vodka
  • 15ml of Passoa Liqueur
  • 10ml Vanilla Syrup 
  • One Passionfruit
  • 15ml Lime Juice
  • Ice 
  • 50ml of Prosecco (or Champagne). 

Scoop out the inside of the passion fruit and combine it with all the ingredients in a shaker except the prosecco. Once you have shaken the ingredients, pour them into a glass, top this up with prosecco and add a slice of passionfruit to serve.

3. Mojito

The Mojito is another hugely popular cocktail. With ingredients that you either have in your cupboard or are easy to get your hands on! You will need: 

  • One and a half Limes (cut into wedges)
  • 20 fresh Mint Leaves
  • Two and a half teaspoons of Sugar
  • Ice
  • 65ml of White Rum
  • A dash of Soda Water. 

Firstly put the mint, sugar, and lime into a glass and crush with the end of a rolling pin. Then add the ice, pour over the rum and add a dash of soda water to serve!

4. Sex On The Beach

Sex on the beach is a staple cocktail with the bonus of being incredibly easy to make. The ingredients needed to make this cocktail for two are: 

  • Ice
  • 50ml of Vodka
  • 25ml of Peach Schnapps
  • Two juiced Oranges (or orange juice)
  • 50ml of Cranberry juice

As for the method, this one is simple. Just combine all of the ingredients, give it a good mix or a shake, then pour over ice into two glasses.

5. Bellini

Finally, the Bellini is the last cocktail on our list and is the easiest to make. To make this cocktail for up to six people, you will need just two ingredients:

  • 500ml of peach pureé 
  • One bottle of prosecco

This method is simple, all you have to do is pour the pureé into a glass and pour the prosecco on top. 

World Cocktail Day Is For Everyone

Cocktails are versatile; none of the recipes to making them are fixed. You can add as much or as little alcohol as you wish. Mocktails are also just as tasty as their alcoholic alternative. This makes World Cocktail Day an inclusive occasion for young and old with all preferences!

Check out all of our amazing deals on World Cocktail Day essentials on Epoints today!

How to Be More Eco-friendly for Earth Day

How to Be More Eco-friendly for Earth Day

It’s Earth Day today. The perfect time to celebrate the planet we live on whilst reflecting on the impact we have. We’ve faced a ridiculous amount of difficulty over the last few years. One of which is the progression of climate change! So, you may very well have decided to do something about it. Whether for health, money or because you care about the planet, everything little thing you do can make a difference to our world!

Here are five easy steps to be more eco-friendly: 

Avoid the car

Although it might be easier to use your car, road transport contributes to 15% of total CO2 emissions. Therefore, swapping to walking or cycling is not only good for your health but helps you become more eco-friendly! Additionally saves you a little bit of money… or a lot.  

Go plastic-free 

Going plastic-free can sound daunting, especially given how much plastic surrounds us every day. Nevertheless, this also means there are many things you can do to change this. Reusing bags, swapping to paper and even buying local can help you be more eco-friendly. 

Reusable and Eco-friendly products

Like going plastic-free, using reusable and eco-friendly products is a great way to be kinder to the earth. Here at Epoints, we’ve just introduced a brand new Eco section to our shop full of eco-friendly beauty products that are kind to your skin and the planet.

Donate

If you want to do something a little extra, you can always donate to more eco-friendly causes! At Epoints, we’ve made this simple. You can use your Epoints to plant trees and help fund eco-projects. To find out more, head to our eco page now!

Eat less meat

Finally, you can make a massive difference to the planet by eating less meat. You don’t even need to go vegan to be more eco-friendly. But by reducing your meat consumption could lead to freeing up several million square kilometres of land and reducing global CO2 emissions by up to eight billion tonnes per year by 2050.

 

So, if you care about the future of the planet, and are looking to make more eco-friendly changes, following these simple steps can change your health, pocket and planet. Change starts with you.

cost-effective

Cost effective Easter activities to keep the family entertained during the holidays

Cost effective Easter activities to keep the family entertained during the holidays

With the cost of bills and fuel rising, there is no doubt that many families will be trying to limit their spending over the Easter holidays. However, this does not mean you have to limit the activities and time you spend with your family. We’re passionate about helping people save money here at Epoints and have come up with a list of cost effective things you can do this Easter to keep your family entertained!

5. Go on a nature walk

The temperatures are gradually rising to make way for spring. If you can avoid the April showers, a great way to see the seasons changing is to go on a family nature walk. There are family-friendly walking trails across the UK that can teach youngsters about the importance of the natural world. You can choose from a variety of woodland walks, coastal paths, lakeside strolls and more with a quick google search to see what’s near you.

4. Cost effective Arts and Crafts

There are a wide variety of Easter-themed arts and crafts to choose from, and you don’t have to break the bank to collect all of the materials you need. A fantastic eco-friendly activity is to use waste that you don’t have a use for, such as egg boxes, plastic bottles and more! Cost effective craft projects are not only fun for children. There is plenty of teenager and adult-friendly ideas out there for you to try. Why not get your hands on some crafting essentials using Epoints?

3. Gardening

Spring is an incredibly significant time for the natural world and the origins of the Easter holiday celebrate this. The Easter bunny symbolises reproduction, and your tasty chocolate eggs represent new life being born into the world. This is a particularly crucial time for plants, trees, and bugs as many pollinators such as bees emerge from hibernation. 

One way to assist bees in their very important task is to plant bee-friendly flowers ready for the summer. Gardening can be a fun, interactive and educational activity for children, and with seeds and gardening tools being fairly cheap and cost effective, you simply can’t go wrong. Why not check out some of our fantastic deals on gardening tools on the Epoints store!

2. Picnic

All that’s required for this day out is a blanket and some homemade sandwiches. Making food to take out with you is far more cost effective than buying food out. You could always combine this with the earlier mentioned nature walk, but only if you’re lucky enough to find a day where the April showers aren’t forecast to make an appearance!

1. Baking

Would it be Easter without a baking recipe featuring some mini eggs? Baking is fun for all the family; it’s messy, it’s cost effective, and it’s lots of fun. What’s more, if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to buying expensive chocolate eggs from the supermarkets, you can giveaway the sweet treats as a more personalised Easter gift.

We hope you have a Hoppy Easter whatever you do this year.

Five of The Funniest April Fool’s Day Ideas

Five of The Funniest April Fool's Day Ideas

April Fool’s Day, as we all know, is the time of year you either prank or get pranked. Many of us have been a victim of some hilarious jokes whether we like it or not. But this year, perhaps it’s time to turn the tables and make a little fun of your own!

You could be at home or in the office, anywhere is a good place to prank on April Fool’s Day. To make things easy for you we’ve made a list of five funny April Fool’s ideas that are absolutely fool proof. 

Five Funny April Fool’s Ideas

There’s a leek in the bathroom

Take a trip down to your local supermarket and pick up a leek, or just grab one from the fridge if they’re something you eat. Once in your possession just put it in the bathroom and shout about said leak…

Cracked TV screen

This one’s easy. All you need to do is download a cracked TV screen image and make it full screen! Whoever’s TV or computer it is is not going to be happy with this one. You might want to show them it’s fake as quickly as possible though.

 

Toothpaste Oreo

But Oreo’s are nice. Not on April Fool’s Day! Until you scrape out the soft icing centre and replace it with minty toothpaste for an unsuspecting victim of your choice. We promise they’re nothing like the tasty mint Oreos either.

Mentos Ice Cubes

This one takes a little bit of planning. But for all those fizzy drink lovers, pop a mint into some ice cube trays with water and freeze them. The next time someone wants a nice cold refreshing coke will get a bit of a shock. 

 

Sugar for Salt

An oldy but goody! Swap the sugar for salt. Or even the other way around to be as sweet as possible of April Fool’s Day.

We hope you find something hilariously genius to do in our blog! But remember to be safe and you should probably apologise after…
