Your favourite Melbourne bars have put together their signature cocktails for you to make at home

As the seasonal calendar moves into summer, a swift change occurs in the drinking habits of young people; red wines and craft beers are left behind in search fresh summer cocktails, and drinks with the girls on sun-lit rooftops go from being a bi-monthly occurrence to an almost weekly event. Last year when it came to cocktails, it was all about frosé; this year, there are no limits, the world is your oyster.

If you consider yourself a cocktail connoisseur and are quite handy with a cocktail shaker, try making some of Melbourne's best bars' signature cocktails at home. Fancy an espresso martini? Try shaking one of QT Melbourne's smooth concoctions. After something incredibly opulent with a kick of sweetness? Whip together Yagiz's Turkish Delight Cocktail. Click though the gallery above for 7 summer cocktail recipes to make at home.
