TGIM is the new TGIF this week! If you thought no good thing happens on a Monday, you are wrong. Well, at least this one time. Monday, the 13th of May happens to be World Cocktail Day. A day where it’s perfectly okay to raise a toast right at the start of the week. So, if you, like me, were looking for a reason to pour a drink and add a little cheer to your life on a boring Monday, we have a treat for you.
Give your Monday morning coffee a World Cocktail Day makeover with a dash of vodka.
50ml Ketel One Vodka
45ml Espresso Coffee
15ml Sugar Syrup
5ml Coffee Liqueur
Coffee Beans, for garnish
Shake all the ingredients with ice.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish and serve.
If coffee does not solve all your Monday problems, tea sure will.
45ml Ketel One Vodka
15ml Fresh Lemon Juice
15ml Simple Syrup
45ml White Tea (Steeped with cranberry juice and fresh muddled raspberries)
2 Dashes Lemon Bitters
Raspberry and Lemon Twist, for garnish
Combine the ingredients in a shaker with ice.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with raspberry and lemon twist and serve.
World Cocktail Day falls on a scorching summer day where you feel parched for a cooling sipper. Coincidence? I think not. Beat those summer blues with a Ketel One Lemonade.
30ml Ketel One Vodka
60ml Freshly Made Lemonade
8 Mint Leaves
Mint Leaves and Lemon Wheel, for garnish
Muddle the mint leaves and add it to a glass with ice.
Pour the Ketel One vodka and lemonade.
Garnish and serve.
Whether it was sipping on jaljeera or aam panna, there’s something about a chatpatta treat that makes summer more memorable. We’ve recreated this mouth-puckering feeling with this spicy jalapeño and cooling cucumber drink.
45ml Ketel One Vodka
1 Cucumber, sliced
4 Jalapeño Peppers, sliced
90ml Ginger Beer
Fresh Lime Juice
2-3 cups Crushed Ice
Infuse 45ml Ketel One vodka with sliced cucumbers (30 minutes) and sliced jalapeño (10 minutes). Add the 90ml ginger beer and fresh lime juice to the mix.
Serve in a copper mug over crushed ice with jalapeño and mint leaves for garnish.
Your Monday couldn’t get any better than this, right? Happy World Cocktail Day, ya’ll!
