Lap of Luxury Cocktail
Most of the time our stories skew a little bit, well, dude-ish. We tend to cover items that get you drunk at a high rate of speed and whatnot - OK, so the Flabongo is pink but it's definitely designed for chugging. We've decided to spruce things up a bit by covering a drink that appeals a bit more to the ladies. Seems like a lot of steps and we have no idea what Elderflower cordial is, but at least it contains one of the manliest of liquors - gin.
Lap of Luxury
From Plymouth Gin
2 oz. Plymouth gin (I figured go with what the recipe calls for, but you can use a different gin if you'd like)
1 1/4 oz fresh squeeze Pink grapefruit juice
1/2 oz. Elderflower cordial
1 dash of simple syrup (mix equal parts boiling water and sugar)
1 slice of watermelon
1. To a shaker filled with ice add gin, elderflower cordial, watermelon wedge, simple syrup and pink grapefruit juice.
2. Shake vigorously to break up the watermelon.
3. Strain into a tall glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a watermelon ball and a slice of lemon.
Makes one cocktail.
Substitute: Black currant or apple liquor for the elderflower cordial.
