Is the summer here? Are we really only one month away from Midsummers?
For the third year running, our village is organising a music festival which is dedicated to freedom of expression and local musical talent. Last year’s was a hoot and I made Tequila lollies.
Patrón Perfect Margarita
Ingredients (makes 4)
35ml Patrón Silver to taste
15ml Patrón Citrónge
125ml freshly squeezed lime juice
90ml fresh pineapple juice
85ml elderflower cordial
We also made Tequila jelly…..
But the outcome was hilarious
Although I am not sure the neighbours would agree. This year maybe we should drink something a bit more sophisticated like a Cosmopolitan.
To make a Cosmopolitan – you need:
- 30ml vodka
- 20ml triple sec
- 15ml lime juice
- 75ml cranberry juice
- Just a dash of Gomme syrup
Pour the vodka, triple sec, lime juice, cranberry juice and Gomme syrup into a cocktail shaker. Add some ice and give it a good shake.
Once fully shaken, strain the cocktail into a Martini glass and, if you’re feeling cosmopolitan, garnish the side with a slice of lime and perhaps a little cocktail brolly.
Mind you, I am not sure drinking a sophisticated cocktail makes you a sophisticated drunk. Of course, there’s only one way to find out. I’ll let you know how I get on.
