In the dark ages, here in Melbourne, an unusual phenomena used to take place - it was known as the "Six o'clock swill". This situation arose due to our archaic liquor laws which made it illegal to be served alcohol after 6pm. So the combination of the need of refreshment and the time restriction led to free for all where booze was guzzled in a frenzy.
In remembrance of this I've created the Friday o'clock swill where I'll feature a drink to enjoy in a civilized manner at the end of the week.
Today it's a simple, summery cocktail.
100 grams frozen strawberries
30ml raspberry vodka
15ml lemon cordial
- Add all the ingredients into a blender and whiz until combined and slushy in appearance.
- Pour into a chilled martini glass.
