Election Twist on a Long Island Iced TeaThe 2010 election fever certainly needed a little ice to cool it off. We created our Election Twist cocktail to be just the long drink needed to keep us up late and survive a long night of vote counting! Our Election Twist is a Demijohn variation of the seductively sweet classic Long Island Iced Tea cocktail and has been invented by one of our Glasgow team members, Carlos Wheeler. It was first drunk by a group of guests taking part in one of our organised tasting evenings in Glasgow. Their enthusiastic noises of approval have now written it into the official Demijohn Cocktail Book.

Ingredients

Preparation

Describing the preparation of this drink reads like a manifesto. Making our Election Twist is an undemanding labour of love! Start with equal measures of our marmalady Seville Orange Gin 26% and our Lime Vodka Liqueur 24%. Add a conservative measure of Spiced Rum and a splash of fresh squeezed lemon to give a twist of independence and a subtly green feel. Shake and strain into an ice filled Colins (long) or Rocks (short) glass and top up with a liberal dose of full fat Coca Cola.

Anything else I should know?

If you are a monster raving looney and want to make it a classic Long Island Iced Tea, add a half measure of gold Tequila and teaspoon full of egg white. Election night will never be the same again!


Cossack Kiss CocktailYou may not be able to dance like a Cossack, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to drink like one! Invented by our York Shop Team in early 2012, this is a fun cocktail combining our handmade Butterscotch Cream Liqueur with real Devonshire cream and our velvety smooth Spiced Rum Liqueur.

Ingredients

Preparation

Using a shot glass or small tumbler, if you are to include ice, pour in the Butterscotch Cream Liqueur first. Then pour the Spiced Rum Liqueur very slowly over the back of a tea spoon that hovers just above the Butterscotch Cream Liqueur. The result should be that the rum successfully floats on top of the cream. If you don't get it right on your first go, then unfortunately you will just have to try it again. Practice, of course, makes perfect and in this case a very jolly night!

Anything else I should know?

The Cossack Kiss Cocktail can be drunk at the start of an evening with friends as a sharpener or after dinner when the liqueurs come round. The combination of Cider Brandy in our Butterscotch Cream Liqueur and dark Demerara Rum in our Spiced Rum Liqueur make this drink an irresistible sip with a little kick in the pants! If you are looking for looking for present inspiration for a rum cocktail drinker then consider our Cocktail Kiss Cocktail Set.
