While we’re usually all about the lowest of high brows when it comes to entertaining - say, a solid cheap beer or a nice box o’wine (they exist, we swear) - sometimes it’s fun to bust out some cocktail skills to impress all your friends who thought they already knew all your tricks.

- Combine vodka and coconut milk in a tall Collins glass and stir.
- Add crushed ice.
- Fill to the top with ginger beer and serve with slices of lemon and lime
