Something for the Weekend – 28/03/10

Good afternoon,

Yesterdays Something for the Weekend cocktail recipes were based around Easter.  This week, there was no Wayne Collins and so Salvatore Calabrese stepped up to make these great recipes.  Look out for the second recipe being served in chilled egg shell cases (they looked delicious).  Here they are.

Chocolate Mint Martini


- 4 fresh mint leaves
- 50ml/2fl oz vodka
- 1 tbsp crème de cacao
- 25ml/1fl oz sweet vermouth
- twist orange peel, to garnish


Place the mint leaves into a mixing glass and muddle together (lightly crush). Add the vodka, crème de cacao and vermouth, with a handful of ice, and stir well.   Strain the cocktail into a martini glass and garnish with a twist of orange peel.

Easter Flip

- 1 free-range egg
- 25ml/1fl oz golden rum
- 1 tbsp vanilla syrup
- 25ml/1fl oz white chocolate liqueur
- 50ml/2fl oz white port
- pinch freshly grated nutmeg, to garnish


Mix the egg, rum, syrup, chocolate liqueur and white port, with a handful of ice, in a Boston glass.  Strain the cocktail into a small wine glass and garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.  Serve this cocktail in an empty egg shell for the full effect!

That’s this weekends cocktails, be sure to check out some further posts this week!
