Cocktail Recipe: Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve Flower

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...
