Usually cocktail-making and hen party ideas only cross paths if the party is booked in for a cocktail-making class, but mixing up some classy concoctions at home can be just as fun!

If you’re looking for some simple hen party ideas, cocktails are a classic way to spice up any party. The internet is full-to-bursting with excellent recipes, but a lot of them are complicated, time-consuming and full of random ingredients that you’re not going to find in your local supermarket or off-licence.

However, here at Henit we’ve taken the liberty of scouring the world wide web to find the simplest, most scrumptious hen party cocktail recipes for our lovely hens to serve at their soirées!

There’s something for everyone on this list, from the prosecco lovers to the whiskey-worshippers, so get those muddlers and mixers out, ladies. Cocktails are the queens of great hen party ideas!
