JILLY, JILLAROO or SHELIA?

October 14, 2017 | 0 Comments

We can’t decide on the best name for our latest cocktail!

 

Did You Know? – That a Vodka based Martini is also called a Kangaroo?! Neither did we until we did some investigating. It seems the name goes all the way back to the 60’s. Which is why we’re looking for an Oz name for this cocktail created for your summer entertaining menu!

Our inspiration was this beautiful Rainbow cake from @tastethelove_madewithlove  at the Rose Bay Market.

 

We started with a reverse Martini and then decided to ‘even’ up the ingredients.   Rather than Gin, we went with Vodka to let the Oz vermouth take centre stage.  And of course we needed a Shrub.  The Riberry was perfect for both flavour (a touch of spice) and colour.

The first 3 ingredients are equal in quantity and we finished with a flourish of Watermelon Juice with it’s delicate, and light and subtle sweetness.  (This ingredient will be a Summer '17 favourite!)  The result is a cocktail with style and flavour without being overwhelming.  We’re sure it will be a summer favourite!

The Jilly

 

INGREDIENTS:

15 ml          Alaskan Rock Vodka

15 ml          Animal Spirit Vermouth

15 ml          Riberry Shrub

60 ml          H2 Melon Water 

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Add all ingredients to cocktail shaker and shake to mix well.
  2. Pour into *‘well dressed’ flute.

 

*(Rim dipped into Riberry Shrub and then dipped into edible sugar beads to coat the rim. The sweet version of a Margarita presentation.)

 

Serve & Enjoy!
