Experimental cocktail towers...

More cocktails this evening after a whimsical journey home. Did anyone else write a poem on the tube journey this evening?

Ruby Ruby Ruby

With ice, shake together one and a half measures of blueberry vodka, half a measure of cherry liqueur, half a lime, a splop of blackcurrant jam and a dessert spoon (ish) of ready bashed mint. Strain into a martini glass and top up with some apple juice. Decorate with a berry of some kind.

Clare's St Clement's

This one is very much an acquired taste. I like fragrant tastes like violets and roses so orange blossoms was an obvious cocktail ingredient.

Again add ice to a cocktail shaker, add a measure each of orange vodka, lemon vodka, a good squeeze of lemon and a spoon of marmalade. Pour into glasses and stir in the blossom to taste - I liked a good teaspoon to give requisite depth. Top with fresh orange juice, not the stuff I used. Decorate with a sliver of orange or a curly peel.

[One yet to have a name - Lemonberry?]

This one was so simple and pure in berry lemon taste. Shake a measure each of lemon vodka and blueberry vodka with a good squeeze of lemon juice and a spoonful of blackcurrant jam. Strain into glasses and top up with apple juice. Decorate with a berry or sliver of lemon zest

Just add cheesy music...and get party planning!
