This flirtatious cocktail adds a bubbly, pineapple twist to a Cosmopolitan. If you are feeling frugal switch the champagne for a Prosecco (arguably a more palatable fizz at a fraction of the cost).

Add the sparkling wine just before serving to maximise the bubbliness of the cocktail.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 cocktail

Ingredients:

  • 2 rings of fresh pineapple
  • 15ml or 0.5oz Cointreau
  • 15ml or 0.5oz vodka
  • 30ml or 1oz pineapple juice
  • 90ml or 3oz champagne
  • Maraschino cherry to garnish

Instructions:

  1. Add the pineapple pieces and Cointreau to a mixing glass or shaker and muddle. Keep on muddling away for as long as it takes to really infuse the liquid with pineapple flavour.
  2. Pour in the vodka and pineapple juice and give it a shake or a good stir.
  3. Strain into a cocktail glass such as a martini glass
  4. Top with champagne or Prosecco.
  5. Garnish with cherry, orange, pineapple chunk or combination!

    Raspberry Vodka

    I first discovered raspberry vodka a few years back whilst running a pub. It was Absolut Raspberry and as with everything that is new it had an initial surge of popularity that then curbed and evened out. It wasn’t just a flash in the pan; we kept it in stock and a few regulars that drank it with lemonade (that’s 7-up style lemonade). It was also a handy ingredient to use in shooter and cocktail recipes.

    How to Make Vodka

    Vodka is a neutral spirit that tends not to have a distinctive flavour or taste in its untampered form. Vodka is generally not aged and can be made using a range of accessible materials and ingredients such as potatoes, grains, sugars, fruit and most things that are capable of being fermented. This makes it a spirit that is easy to produce in a relatively short space of time.

    Lab Soho is a lively, friendly cocktail bar with an edge of sticky about the place like it needs a good clean. You could argue that this adds to the character and appeal depending on what you look for in a bar. The cocktail range is vast and they taste fairly decent too but be prepared to wait if it’s busy and potentially then be faced with a glass full of crushed ice.

     
  • What is Vodka Made From?

    What is Vodka Made From?

    Vodka has been sipped, downed and applied across the globe for centuries. Originating in Eastern Europe towards the end of the 9th century the name is derived from the Russian word ‘voda’ meaning water. It was primarily used for medicinal purposes and as an ingredient in gun powder during the Middle Ages but during the 14th century became an established drink in Russia and by the middle of the 16th century was recognised as the national drink of Poland and Finland. But what is vodka made from?
