Steps

Raspberry Vodka Daiquiri

  1. Put juice and sugar into a saucepan and bring to boil, then simmer for 15-20mins to let the liquid reduce. Set aside to cool. Transfer syrup to a sterilised jar.
  2. Fill a pint glass full of ice and pour ice into a zip seal food bag. Crush with a rolling pin.
  3. Next, fill a rocks glass with crushed ice. Add Raspberry Vodka, lime juice and 5ml of the syrup. Stir with a chopstick. Add more ice to the top of the glass and garnish with the bruleed lime halves and a raspberry.
  4. To brulee the limes, cut the limes into half or wedges. Pat dry with kitchen paper and leave to dry out for 10 mins. Sprinkle with sugar and then brulee with a blow torch. Alternatively simply put under a grill. Set aside to cool before using as a cocktail garnish.
  5. To finish your cocktail drizzle the remaining syrup with a spoon over the top of the ice, creating a bleeding effect through the drink.

Hacks

  1. No crushed ice – put ice cubes in food bag, seal and crush with rolling pin
  2. Instead of using a bar spoon – use a chopstick as a stirrer to mix the drink
  3. No cocktail syrups – use a fruit juice and sugar (1:1 ratio) to create a fruit syrup
  4. Bruleed limes – no blowtorch , use oven grill to brulee
