How to make a UB40

It's time for another happy hour at home! We're really hoping it won't be long before we can sip cocktails together again in the sunshine, with some Crispy Chilli Squid and Trini Doubles on the way, but for now this will have to do.

Here's another one of your FAVOURITE Turtle Bay cocktail recipes. It's another easy one to make at home and we've tweaked our normal recipe so that all the ingredients are easy to find.
