Rather than base a cocktail on one of the stories from this month, I’ve created something new in reaction to our horrific tales. The weather’s heating up on Buber, and The Golden Hour shows that whatever happens out there, we can all enjoy a drink in the sunshine.
250ml of sweet fizzy cider
Shot of cassis
Ice (five cubes)
Slice of lemon
Mix the whisky, elderflower cordial, vermouth, and the juice of one lime into a shaker with ice. Shake, and strain into a margarita glass with a salted rime. Garnish with a slice of lime.
Think how lucky you are to have the whisky in the glass, and that it doesn’t turn you into the undead.
