[Ad] How To Make A Vodka Garden Cocktail

 This vodka garden cocktail is refreshing and a must for any of you cocktail lovers out there.


Last week I was lucky enough to attend my first virtual blogging event with Moonpig. I have been a customer of theirs for many years, but this opened my eyes to all the things their app has to offer, the gifts available and the fact that a vodka garden is a delicious cocktail.

With Christmas looking decidedly different this year, moonpig are trying to makes things that little bit easier and personalised for everyone. With many great cards and some great features on their app that I would love to share with you (as well as a Moonpig discount code for downloading the app!)

5 Reasons to download the Moonpig app

1. If you haven't already downloaded the Moonpig app to your phone, then do. Don't worry you can choose how you set the notifications, but trust me, from experience it's reminders are a godsend. Also, if you download the app you can use the code APP20CA to get 20% off cards.

2. They have a great range of gifts. I am going to be truthful here, but before the event I would never have thought of buying flowers from Moonpig. However, the festive themed bunch they sent me were absolutely beautiful and came packaged well. They showed me how to make a table decoration with them and now 2 weeks later they are still going strong. I will let you know when the Christmas flowers are out for you to buy!

They also have chocolates, personalised gifts and even alcohol. The Belvedere Vodka is what they sent me to make the vodka garden cocktail. 

3. If you have an iphone you can upload your own handwriting. I loved this. I know that you can already chose a handwritten style, but this is just more personal. You can write/draw your message on a piece of paper and then upload it. I am definitely going to do this on the next card I send.

4.You can send orders to different addresses direct. I guess this is great with Christmas coming up. You may have designed the same card for a number of people and this way you can send them all directly, along with gifts if you choose. You just group them together.

5. There is a live chat to help you if you have a problem. I always love a company that has good customer service.


I had a great evening and for me, the best part was the virtual cocktail making session. I wouldn't usually go for a vodka based cocktail, but the vodka garden is like a lighter mojito. The cucumber and elderflower make it a lovely refreshing drink.



Vodka Garden Cocktail


  • 45ml Belvedere vodka
  • 25ml lime juice
  • 25ml sugar syrup
  • a couple of slices of cucumber cut into quarters
  • 25ml elderflower soda
  • 6-8 mint leaves
  • ice
  1. Start my cutting the cucumber and placing it your glass. Using a muddler, squash it to release some of the flavour.
  2. Measure out the vodka, lime juice and sugar syrup.
  3. Fill the glass with ice cubes.
  4. Add 6-8 mint leaves and mix the ice and cocktail around.
  5. Fill to the top with elderflower soda.
  6. Add a sprig of mint for decoration.
