It’s that magical time of the day…the sun is setting and dusk brings peace and quiet to the end of the working week.

It’s the perfect opportunity for a cocktail, or two! Cin cin, it’s Cocktail Week at AGFG and do we have some great tips, recipes and articles to share with you.

Marie-Antoinette Issa takes us around the world in mixed drinks – from an Aperol Spritz in Italy to Mexican Margaritas, these classic cocktails from around the globe are both a perfect option for those after a cool drink and an insight into the local culture.
