There are many things that we have done at home in these almost three months that we have been at home, although we have finally started dating . And not everything has been about make bread, neither cupcakes whether they are chocolate or lemon, nor follow the dishes that the Michelin-starred chefs have taught us through social networks or having learned their tricks for dishes as typical as omelette. There are other things related to gastronomy that we have also searched a lot on the Internet in these long weeks, and one of the searches that most have increased is that of cocktail recipes. Because when teleworking ends, the afternoon comes and the night approaches, and on weekends, we could not go to the bars but we could prepare a good combination at home.
