Kalkan Cocktail

We have just been on a fantastic, lovely holiday in Kalkan, Turkey. Where we tasted several different types of cocktail, mainly rum  and vodka based and non alcoholic cocktails too. In our hotel Murat made me a ‘Lemon M’ cocktail. This consisted of White Rum, Raspberry Absolut Vodka and Cointreau. Mixed with 1/2 a lemon and 1/2 orange (freshly squeezed). Shaken and then served with ice into a pina colada glass with fruit (for decoration). Really refreshing to drink!

Grasshopper Cocktail

How to make the above cocktail, you will need the following ingredients/equipment:

Crème de menthe (peppermint liqueur)

Crème de cacao (chocolate liqueur)

Half Cream (double or single)

Half Milk (mixed together)

Margarita glass (or something similar from cupboard)

Ice Cubes

2 x sip straws

Cocktail Shaker/Glass

Drink Strainer

Mint

This is a very short, but enjoyable cocktail, and easy to drink after a dinner party. It is also fairly easy to make.

To start, you will need to ‘pre-chill’ the margarita glass, by filling it up with ice! This is so, by the time you have mixed the cocktail and are ready to pour it, the glass is cold enough. Pour equal measures (one shot of each), of the Crème de menthe and Crème de cacao into the bottom of the cocktail shaker, with (about a third of the way up the cocktail shaker), the    pre-mixed milk and cream. Before. shaking the cocktail, place a few ice cubes in the cocktail shaker, then shake the cocktail mix’ roughly 10/15 times over  the shoulder. Throw away the ice in the margarita glass, , and strain the cocktail as  you pour it from the shaker into the glass. Ensuring no ice is put into the glass. Finally, garnish with a sprig of mint. Relax and enjoy!
