Recurring Decimals…..

Friday Cocktail Blogging: Old link Edition

FCB had to be skipped last week due to the flu, during which the closest I came to anything with a booze-like quality was the sedating effects of Vick’s NyQuil shots.

Actually, still not recovered fully from the flu – amazing how these tiny bugs, acting concertedly, can take you down: even after a week after most of the symptoms are gone, am feeling pretty weak physically. Anyhow, all that has rather placed a dampener on regular cocktail experimentations.

So for this week, I am simply posting a recipe I had written about earlier.

It’s semi-original recipe (a slight variation on the Cosmopolitan theme). And, be warned, the drink is bit on the sweet side. Recommendations welcome for a suitable name.

As usual, chill a martini glass in the freezer or by filling with crushed ice and soda. You will need:

  • 3 parts Vodka (Ciroc is ideal for this)
    2 parts Cointreau
    1 part Hpnotiq liqueur
    0.5 fresh lime juice (roll the lime on a table before squeezing)
    Dash of Blue Curacao
    Marchiano cherrys
  • Add everything except the cherries with ice in a shaker. Shake – give it a nice wristy motion – strain into pre-chilled glass. Add one or two marchiano cherrys and a bit of the cherry syrup for a good measure (especially if you like it sweet). The red color of the syrup will settle at the bottom providing a red and blue drink – pleasing both to the visual and taste sensors.

    Cheers and drink responsibly.
