Friday Night Cocktails

Start your weekend in delicious style

At Stylist, we know only too well how satisfying a really good cocktail can be come Friday night. With that in mind, we've joined forces with online supermarket Ocado to bring to a delicious cocktail recipe every week in time to get the weekend started in style.

Each recipe is easy to follow, which means you can whip them up in no time at home. So, whether it’s for the start of an evening out or you just to add a touch of glamour to your quiet night in, our cocktails will be a glamorous addition to your weekend unwinding.

All ingredients can be purchased online at Ocado.com. Visit Ocado and discover their own new, great-value range of groceries alongside big-name brands (matched to Tesco prices) and delicious Waitrose products – all delivered in handy colour-coded bags and convenient hourly slots by super-friendly drivers. Alternatively, shop on the move with Ocado’s innovative ‘On The Go’ mobile app, available via iPhone, Android handsets and now the iPad.

We'll be listing a new cocktail each week, so be sure to check back regularly. View all cocktails - and pick which one to mix this weekend - below...
