Something for the Weekend – 18/04/10

Good morning everyone,

Well, it was a great sunny weekend, maybe that was due to there being no planes in the sky! Anyway, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and made the most of the sun.  Down to this weekends cocktails from Something for the Weekend…  Again they were made by Wayne Collins and here they are:

Bloody Nora


- 2 tsp lemon juice
- 50ml/2fl oz gin
- 100ml/4fl oz vegetable juice
- 2 dashes Tabasco sauce
- 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
- pinch celery salt
- pinch freshly ground black pepper
- splash ruby port
- 1 asparagus spear, cooked, to garnish


Place all of the cocktail ingredients, except the asparagus, into a cocktail shaker, add a handful of ice, and shake well. To serve, strain the cocktail into a large wine glass and garnish with the asparagus spear.

St. Georges Fizz


- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 25ml/1fl oz sloe gin
- 25ml/1fl oz sour green apple liqueur
- pear cider, to top up
- apple slice, blackberry and fresh mint sprig, to garnish


Add some ice to a sling glass (or other tall glass).  Add the lemon juice, sloe gin and apple liqueur and top up with the pear cider.   To serve, garnish with the apple slice, blackberry and mint sprig.

That’s all for this weekends cocktails.  I will be back later on in the weekend with some more tasty recipes!
