As most of you know I am crazy about cocktails. As I love the art of mixing drinks, I have decided to share some of my own recipes or my favourite recipes with you on ‘Drinks on Fridays’.
I start this cocktail Friday with the ‘Bay Breeze’. The Bay Breeze is one of my favourite cocktails which makes it the perfect cocktail to start ‘Drinks on Friday’. Bay Breeze is a perfect cocktail for a hot summers day.
The recipe here is by one of London’s best mixologist – Douglas Ankrah.
2 Highball Glasses
4 oz Wyborowa pineapple vodka
5 0z cranberry juice
4 oz fresh pineapple juice
Hard ice cubes.
Pineapple slices for garnish
Fill the glass with ice, pour in the drinks and stir. Garnish with pineapple slices.
If you can’t find Wyborowa pineapple vodka, make your own pineapple vodka by infusing pineapple fruits into any (non-flavored) vodka. Cut 1 whole pineapple fruit into 5cm x 5 cm cubes and place it in an air tight bottle. Pour 750cl vodka into the bottle. Close and leave the bottle in a cool dark place. After 5 to 7 days, remove the pineapple cubes and strain the residue out. Your vodka is now ready to drink.
