Nothing adds instant glamour to an occasion like cocktails. Unfortunately there is nothing instant about all the chopping, juicing, and blending that goes with making them. So if the thoughts of preparing a cocktail at home from scratch leaves you feeling a little shaken and stirred, well relax and sit back with the new bartender-inspired collection of ready-to-serve cocktails from the makers of Smirnoff vodka. Available in both mojito and cosmopolitan, both varieties are prepared using super premium ingredients to bar standards yet are perfect for enjoying at home.

Thanks to television shows and movies, cocktails have made a big revival in the past few years. The last big cocktail phase was during the fifties and sixties when every fashionable hotel had a cocktail bar with lots of starched collars, crisp white uniforms and bow ties. In 2009 the typical uniform for a cocktail barman seems to be black, although usually with the addition of a very flashy tie. The use of the word cocktail dates back to 1806 in New York so they have been around a long time, yet many have stood the test of time and have the same ingredients today as they had 100 years ago. A typical cocktail contains about 30-40 per cent high strength alcohol with the remainder being flavourings of one kind or another.
