Welcome back and welcome to all new students. I hope you all have had a great summer and are motivated for the semester. This time I will focus on some good summer cocktails which are fairly easy to make and will keep you refreshed during the few hot summer days that we have.
This drink is considered as an IBA Official Cocktail, which means that it is selected by the International Bartenders Association for use in the World Cocktail Competion. Sea Breeze uses vodka as its base of alcohol. Here is how you make it
Fill a highball glass with ice and add in the following ingredients;
4cl of Absolut Vodka
12cl of Cranberry juice
3 cl of Grapefruit juice
Garnish with a lime wedge on the glass.
This drink can also be shaken which will give the drink a foamy layer on top. A perfect drink for late summer nights.
RASPBERRY LIMONCELLO PROSECCO
This drink is normally created in a large pitcher, but can also be created in a wine glass. You need a bottle of prosecco, preferably a dry one. One bottle of limoncello liquor, which can be bought at the Vinmonopolet for 215 NOK. Some frozen or fresh raspberries, I prefer to use fresh for the better taste and lastly some fresh mint sprigs. Chill both the prosecco bottle and limoncello liquor. Find a large pitcher, 1,5L should be sufficient. Add some ice in the pitcher at the bottom, pour the whole bottle of prosecco and 2,5 dl of the limoncello liquor in the pitcher. Add 10-15 raspberries and 6 sprigs of mint leaves in and stir carefully. Serve in a wine glass over raspberries and garnish with a mint sprig if you like.
A very refreshing drink that you easily can make at home, all you need is some vodka, lime juice and ginger beer. Normally we use copper mug as a preferred drinkware, but there is no problem using a standard highball glass. First of all, fill your mug or glass with ice. Add 4 cl of vodka and 12 cl of ginger beer, add 0,5cl of lime juice (or the juice from half a lime). Stir gently and garnish with a lime slice and a mint sprig.
