Berry Collins

This one I’m very excited about a real fruity twist on an old time classic Tom Collins.

4 Raspberries (plus extra for garnish)

4 Blueberries (plus extra for garnish)

Dash Strawberry Syrup

Dash Sugar Syrup

15ml Lemon Juice

50ml Gin

Soda Water to Top

Lemon Slice for garnish

Muddle half the berries with the sugar and strawberry syrups in a Collin’s glass. Fill glass with crushed ice, add gin, lemon juice, stir well then top with soda water.

Garnish with blueberries, raspberries and lemon slice

Red Deep

This is something of my own creation, I love creme de mure such a sweet tasty liqueur seldom used in cocktails, I made my own kiwi and lime vodka which I added into this drink.

Red Deep

Serving One

25ml Creme De Mure

25ml Kiwi and Lime Vodka

150ml Cranberry Juice

Soda Water to top

Lime Wedge for garnish

Add Creme de Mure, Kiwi and Lime Vodka and Cranberry Juice to shaker with ice, shake and strain into hiball glass with ice. Top up with soda water then garnish with Lime Wedge. 

Very fruity and refreshing the only problem is that the original recipe had 2 measures of creme de mure which is way too sweet for this drink. The reason I had the soda water was to give it a bit of a fizz like a Cranberry Fizz.

Tequila Sunrise

Just wow, this drink is simple and easy to make, looks stunning and has a sharp fresh taste!

Tequila Sunrise

Serving 2

300ml Orange Juice

100ml Tequila

2 Splashes of Grenadine

Lime Wedge for garnish

Ice

Pour Tequila into hiball glasses add orange juice stir using barspoon, add ice, then float grenadine on top, it should trickle down creating the colours of a rising sun,

Fruity Fizz

This is of my own creation and it turned out very fruity and refreshing.

6 – 8 Blueberries

Lemon Wheel to garnish

Muddle the blueberries and kiwi with the Gin, lemon, lime and cranberry Juice add iceshake then double strain into hiball glass with ice, add creme de mure then top with lemonade. Garnish with lemon wheel. 

Very tasty and will be making again.

Spiked Berry

Wanted to create something with Grapefruit Juice so I bashed this fruity delight up.

Spiked Berry

Serves 2

50ml Tequila

50ml Gin

25ml Lime Juice

25ml Cranberry Juice

100ml Grapefruit Juice

Lemonade to top

6 Blueberries

Cherry,Strawberry, and Blueberry to garnis

Add to shaker all ingredients except lemonade, muddle the blueberries then add ice, shake then double strain into hiball glasses with ice, top with lemonade. 

Garnish with strawberry, blueberry, and cherry

I wanted to experiment with a bramble recipe but thought adding the Creme De Mure would be a little to much, perhaps ditch the tequila and increase the gin.
