We’ve got to that point in the festive season where every now and then I get a burst of Christmas butterflies in my stomach and run around like a little kid getting all excited because Christmas is coming!

You heard that right – candy corn jello shots! Adorable alcoholic shots of jello with all the colourful layers of candy corn. Okay, so they don’t taste like candy corn – if I’m totally honest, I’ve never tasted candy corn in my life and therefore have no idea what the stuff actually tastes like. Layers of processed sugar upon processed sugar, I’m guessing.
Let me introduce you to the first cocktail I ever had – the tequila sunrise! I can’t for sure remember exactly what attracted me to it, but if I had to have a guess right now I’d say it was the colours. Just look at them! Although it’s called a tequila sunrise, the colours make me think of the sun setting at the beach after a long lazy summer day. What do you think?
