It's the weekend before payday, ergo unless someone else is paying, the chances are tonight's drinks will be of the homemade variety. But that doesn't mean they need to be boring - you can do better than a plain old glass of Pinot!
Fact: making cocktails at home is both fun and makes you look good if you're having friends round. Just watch out for those generous-to-self hand-poured measures if you've got anything pressing to do tomorrow...
