Spiced Bellini

The perfect drink to soften the blow of autumn onset. This is a sweet twist on a classic drink with a mild poke of spice.

Yield: 3 cocktails

Prep Time: 20 minutes + cool time. If you don't have time to cool the plum mixture use a couple of ice cubes to speed up the process. It's also handy if you store your vodka in the freezer!

Ingredients:

  • 60 ml or 2 oz vodka
  • Processco
  • 3 chopped plums
  • 15 g or 0.5 oz light brown Muscovado sugar
  • 2 cm piece of root ginger
  • 6 peppercorns

Instructions:

  1. Add the plums, sugar, ginger and peppercorns to a pan with 100ml of water and simmer for around 10 or so minutes until the plumy mixture has thickened and is nice and pulpy.  The longer you leave it hubbling the more spice infused it will become.
  2. Pour the juice through a sieve into a jug and use a spoon to squeeze out as much liquid as possible.
  3. Add the vodka and if you have the time chill the spicy, plum juice or else add an ice-cube or two.
  4. Fill about half of each glass up with the vodka and plum mix (assuming your glasses are relatively small in size) and then top with Prosecco.
  5. Serve.

    This is both a popular and potent classic cocktail with vodka being just one of 5 spirits that make up the toxic mix of alcohol.

  • Two Chocolate Martini's + Rims

    Chocolate Orange Martini and Chocolatini

    Pure boozy, chocolaty indulgence; these chocolate martin's should be sipped not gulped, especially seeing as they are both alcohol, alcohol mixed with alcohol!

     
  • Cosmopolitan

    A Cosmopolitan cocktail adopts just that in attitude by mixing alcohol with alcohol and topping up with just a dash of juice. If you want to intoxify your guests then this is the one to serve up! Short and strong, small sips are recommended to avoid peaking too early in a room spinning, dizzy head, hazy eyes drunken disaster!

    Blavod: 80% proof, neutral grain vodka.

    The distinguishing feature of Blavod vodka is that it is black. It isn’t unique in its blackness as there are now a few copycats but it is definitely the most well-known brand of black vodka and claims to be the only ‘premium black vodka on the market’.

    Lab Stoli

    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.
