DRESS UP TO GET DOWN!
Cocktails for Two - Spike Jones and His City Slickers
On this week’s Peppermint Candy we chatted about Prohibition in America and how people got around the law by drinking cocktails. ‘Where’s the best place to get modern cocktail frocks?’ we hear you ask. Well, ponder no more as Motel Rocks definitely have the pick of the best, as you can see above. Fancy a James Bond-style Martini (shaken not stirred, obvs)? Look no further than their dapper Gigi playsuit to accompany it. Fancy going tropical with a thirst-quenching Mai Tai? Then the Hawaii Libby dress is for you. But our favourite cocktail has to be the Peppermint Candy cocktail, devised exclusively for our Peppermint Candy live night at the Cobden Club last month. Want to make it at home? Follow these simple instructions…
35ml London Dry Gin
10ml Creme de Violette
10ml Peppermint Liqueur
20ml fresh lemon juice
5ml sugar syrup
3 x mint leaves
Shake all the ingredients with ice using a cocktail shaker, then strain the liquid off the ice and into the glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon.
And what to wear? Of course the Motel Rocks Karina dress in perfect Peppermint Candy red and white stripes. Delish!
