The last time I had cocktails was at my friends hen night. We were taught how to make them and then got to enjoy our hard work. It was lots of fun.
I really enjoy cocktails because you always know you are going to get an explosion of flavours. I don’t often make them at home though because they can be a bit complicated and you need lots of ingredients.
Soho Juice Co. have aimed to ease the job of making cocktails at home by providing an interesting mixer based on the humble cucumber. The Soho is a soft drink made from a mixture of lemon, lime, cucumber and mint and it tastes refreshing on it’s own but is great mixed with alcohol.
I received my Soho Juice in a glass bottle with a plastic stopper. I couldn’t wait to get started and flicked through the book I’d been provided with all the cocktail recipes. I decided it had to be a classic Martini.
- 20ml dry vermouth
- 40ml dry gin
- Splash of Soho Juice
- Some ice cubes
- A slice of lime (and a little squeeze)
