Each month we search for a tasty tipple we think our readers will love and show how you can recreate it at home.

This month it comes courtesy of Archers Kitchen and Cocktail Bar in King's Lynn, who are showcasing a creation called Drinking Buddies.

The drink was inspired by a friend's wedding at which the couple wanted to offer something simple that could be used as a party punch. The name was intended to remind them of the good times they had shared with their guests at the event.

The cocktail is made with fairly simple ingredients but has a nice balance of flavours that make it far too easy to drink!

Here's how you can make your own:
