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.

     
  • Flirtini

    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).

     
  • 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.

     
  • Sex on the Beach

    It’s a classic that has caused a zillion number of smirks, giggles or outright fits of laughter when ordered at any bar on the planet and if you don’t find it vaguely amusing then you must be lacking a sense of humour! It is a simple enough cocktail consisting of just 2 spirits and a bit of juice but sometimes simplicity is needed in life and indulging in good old sex on the beach is what’s required! Tee. Hee. Hee.

    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.
