Enjoy The Diviners with some jazz-age-inspired cocktails

We pos-i-tute-ly LOVE the 1920s setting for Libba Bray’s new novel, The Diviners (did you guess)?

We’ve been wearing the fashions, talking the talk and trying to copy coolest heroine ever Evie O’Neill in every way possible, so what better addition to our 1920s repertoire than some Diviners-inspired cocktails* (all recipes make two).

Flapper fizz
Squeeze the juice of half a lemon and finely chop a small piece of ginger. Muddle with ice and two shots of elderflower cordial. Strain into a glass, top with apple juice and sparkling water.

Diviners Dacquiri
Blend 2 shots lime juice with 100g strawberries. Add a couple of teaspoons of sugar and two large handfuls of crushed ice. Blend again and serve in cocktail glasses decorated with a strawberry.

Jazz-Age Julep
Muddle some mint with the juice of half a lemon and some crushed ice. Strain into a glass and combine with half a cup each of apple, pineapple and orange juice. Serve garnished with a few mint sprigs.

Manhattan Mule
Squeeze the juice of one lime and muddle with ten fresh mint leaves. Strain into a glass full of ice and top with lashings of ginger beer.

Prohibition Punch
Combine a small glass each of pineapple and cranberry juice. Squeeze in the juice of one lemon. Pour over crushed ice and top with ginger beer.

*Strictly alcohol free of course, although if you’re over 18 and want to spice them up a little, we’re not going to judge you!
