This cocktail recipe was created for the Demijohn 2008 Staff Christmas night out by Carrie Hay as our Glasgow team's entry to a cocktail competition between our Edinburgh and Glasgow shops. The Edinburgh cocktail is called Scottish Rose. Although a draw was declared on the night, your comments on the success of each recipe would be much appreciated and could be posted online if witty enough!
- 3 measures Lime Vodka Liqueur 24%
- 6 Fresh Strawberries
- 3/4 measure Fresh Lime Juice
- A dash of Sugar Syrup
- 5 measures of Ginger Ale
To start, blitz up 2/3 of your fresh strawberries. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the Lime Vodka, lime juice and a dash of sugar syrup and shake well. Take a Collins glass (or tall straight sided glass), add 2 or 3 blocks of ice and a couple of whole strawberries. Strain your mixed drink into the glass until half full, top up with Ginger Ale. Garnish with half a strawberry, add straws. Serves 2.
Anything else I should know?
To make this sharper and more limey, simply leave out the sugar syrup.
