Pink Passion Cocktail

Monday 15 February 2016

Ever since I got some rather fancy looking martini glasses for my birthday, having a cocktail or two or three is no longer a rare thing in my house. That's why when Corky's asked if I'd like to make my own cocktail recipe using their raspberry glitter schapps*, I jumped at the chance. 

I've only every experienced Corky's from a shot glass so it was quite fun experimenting with different flavours for a cocktail...any excuse for a drink ey!! 

Here's the concoction I liked the best. You should try it - it's berry nice ;)

You will need:

A couple handfuls of fresh raspberries 
1 Lime
50ml Corky's Raspberry Glitter Schnapps
100ml Raspberry and Cranberry Juice 
Soda water 
Lots and lots of ice cubes
Enough caster sugar and Grenadine to decorate the rim of your glass

I started off decorating my glasses by pouring some grenadine into a plate and then caster sugar in another plate. Slowly dip your glass into the grenadine and then into the sugar for a pretty frosted pink edge. 

Next, I madepurée by blending the raspberries (remember to leave a couple out for decorating) and then putting them through a sieve - no one wants to be picking seeds out of their teeth!

Add the juice of half a lime, 50ml of Corky's Raspberry Glitter, 100ml of Cranberry and Raspberry juice, your 'lots and lots of ice cubes' and give it all a good shake..

Pour carefully into your frosted edge glass, top with soda water and pop a raspberry and wedge of lime on the rim for good measure.

And you're all done!!!

My mum decided to top hers with Champagne which worked really well too :)

I love the girliness of the glitter and think these would be perfect for a girl's night in or out!!

They also would be perfect for a hen party! Corky's are offering a very lucky somebody a Hen Party of their choice worth up to £1000. All you have to do is tell them which Corky's flavour you'd want at your hen party! Click here to enter

Good luck if you decide to enter and if you decide to try out my recipe, let me know what you think!

p.s. I now have a facebook page which you can find here
