*Summer fun with Funkin Cocktails

If you follow me on snapchat (it’s misslaurahaley, if you want to go follow!) you will probably have seen my excitement when I received this package a couple of months ago. It’s a pretty funny story-I had the day off work and was still in my pyjamas at 11, hadn’t even brushed my hair-one of those lazy mornings. Then there was a knock on the door, and it was the DPD driver who delivers to us at work. He looked at me, looking like I’d been dragged through a hedge backwards, said ‘oh I know where you live now!’, and handed me a big box branded Funkin Cocktails. Basically, it looked like I wasn’t at work, in favour of staying in my pyjamas to be delivered alcohol at 11am. Awkward.

Luckily, my embarassment was worth it. I opened the (very heavy!) box to find LOADS of different mixers, AND a cocktail shaker too. Thanks so much, Funkin!

I did actually receive more than this-AND I won a couple as a traffle prize at a blogging event the week before too. But in the interests of making the photos pretty, I just took pictures of one of each type.

It’s taken me a while to get this post written, and that’s mainly because it’s taken me a while to try so many different flavours. I wanted to get a good feel for the range before giving my thoughts. There’s going to be a further series of posts about these mixers-I will be inventing my own cocktails themed around this blog, and sharing the recipes with you all.

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with my first thoughts on Funkin. Their mixers are a fantastic idea-you just add the relevant alcohol (and ice, should you wish) and off you go. Each mixer makes 10 cocktails-I find that if you add a similar fruit juice you can make it last longer too, so if I was holding a party I’d make pitchers using a couple of bottles of Funkin mixer and one of fruit juice, and then add my alcohol. It depends how you like your cocktails really-you can make them really strong alcohol wise, or more of a long drink if you so desire. Fantastic.

Funkin has a huge range of cocktail mixers and I can’t wait to finish what I’ve got so I can have a little splurge on their website and order more to try.  From £2.99 per bottle they really don’t break the bank either-imagine how expensive it would be to buy the ingredients for each cocktail separately!

Have you tried any of Funkin Cocktails mixers? What did you think?

*Funkin Cocktails very kindly sent me these items to try. All thoughts and opinions contained in this post and in the future posts are my own, and the idea for this series was mine too. This is something I would have written about anyway, and I’m lucky that Funkin liked the idea too.

    Far too many times have I been caught out in a awkward moment with the postman ha. I have heard of Funkin before but I’m yet to try them. I’m out for my birthday in a few weeks but we are pre drinking before so I might have to invest in a couple of these, not a bad price at all

    I love a good cocktail. Never heard of Funkin before but I like making cocktails being an ex barmaid, the shaking up is the fun part and a nice arm exercise lol!

    These look great and definitely something we would use with friends, I am off to investigate more x

    Haha! Awwwwkward!! So worth it by the looks of things though. I’d not heard of these before either x

    Oooh these sound brilliant! I think I’d drink the pina colada one on its own haha, if you don’t add the rum it’s suitable for breakfast right?

    That’s such an exciting package, I’d have been well happy to get this x

    Oh I love the idea of these, and how funny that it was the same DPD driver you get at work! Awkwaaaaard haha!

    Wow i didn’t realise they had such a large selection of drinks.

    It would be so fun to try these. I’m definitely ready for some fruity cocktails to counter this summer heat.

    I hadn’t heard of Funkin Cocktails untill seeing this post but they look great! As you said it’s so much simpler than making the cocktails yourself, by just adding the choice of alcohol. I don’t drink but I will definitely keep it in mind for summer BBQs for others.
