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 cocktail is pure indulgence in a glass. In fact it is so scrummy and filling that it could easily be a desert. If you like your cocktails thick, creamy and chocolaty then a frozen mudslide is definitely a winner!

     
  • Vodka Iced Tea and Iced Tea Vodka

    Vodka Iced Tea

    Vodka and Ice Tea and Iced Tea Vodka are two very different things. One is basically a cocktail while the other is a vodka infusion. Really the latter is just tea flavoured vodka that has been either artificially flavoured or infused using tea leaves. Brands of tea flavoured vodka are detailed below.

  • Lab Soho

    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.

    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.

    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.
