Confectionery Cocktails


If you’re anything like me, or indeed the majority of people at Bangor one would imagine, the majority of your pocket money in the 90’s was quickly drained by the pick and mix aisle. Now that I’m in my twenties the majority of my pocket money (a.k.a. my Student Loan) is quickly drained by more grown up things, like bills, but mostly by alcohol. For this 90’s edition of Seren we’ve incorporated the best of both worlds by creating three, easy to make, cocktails based on childhood sweets.
