So, what’s your favorite cocktail? I have two!

Porn Star Martini! Did you know that a martini was James Bond’s favourite drink?

And you can make it easily at home, this is how:

Ingredients:

25ml Vanilia vodka & Vanilla syrop
50ml passionfruit purée
50ml pineapple juice
1⁄2 a passion fruit
25ml prosecco

Fill your martini glass with crushed ice to chill and place to one side.

Shake ingredients with ice and strain into your chilled glass, and as garnish add half a passion fruit on top with a spoon. Enjoy!

It’s customary to serve this with a shot glass of prosecco, honestly, I never understood that addition, this is of course up to you!

My second favourite is of course a Cosmo!

How to make a killer Cosmo:

Ingredients:

45ml lemon vodka

15ml triple sec

30ml cranberry juice

10ml lime juice

orange or lime zest

Fill your martini glass with crushed ice to chill and place to one side.

Shake ingredients with ice and strain into your chilled glass, as garnish add the orange zest. Enjoy!

Yours,

Diti
