Welcome to week five, half way through our summer themes on RTÉ Lifestyle. Where does the time go? Pull up a chair, kick back and relax because it’s Drinks and Cocktails Week all this week on RTÉ Lifestyle.

Kicking off the week on RTÉ Food, we have teamed up with one of Dublin’s newest and best cocktails bars. Vintage Cocktail Club are our competition partners this week and have a fantastic prize for one lucky winner to enjoy dinner and cocktails on them! We also have lots of food and drinks recipes from VCC, as well as all your favourite Irish chefs.

For week five of our guest food blogger series, Joanne from Stitch & Bear delves into the magic of mixology and concocts some seriously delicious cocktails for everyone to try at home.

Bulking out the week we have drinks news from top hotels, bars and restaurants across the country who seem to be enjoying the summer sun and splashing out on great drinks promotions and innovative new menus across the board. Also, stay tuned all week long for some delicious recipes and chatter over on Twitter about the best cocktail recipes, using #TimeForCocktails.

As usual, keep an eye across RTÉ Homes, Travel and Fashion for lots more drinks and cocktails content throughout the week.
