Breakfast in a Glass
2 tbsp Nescafé
2 measures gin
200ml pt milk
200ml pt orange juice
Pregnant women, infants, the elderly and those with a compromised immune system should not eat raw or partially cooked eggs
Mix together all the ingredients in a pint glass (be sure to add the orange juice last, to prevent the milk curdling) and drink cold.
Vodka Slush Puppy
2 measures vodka (use top shelf vodka, mind you)
1 measure grapefruit juice
1 measure lemonade
lots of ice
Blend everything together and pour into a half-pint or hi-ball glass.
Morning-after Bloody Mary
1 tsp thick horseradish sauce (optional)
1 handful ice cubes (or frozen cherry tomatoes)
1 shot vodka
1 squeeze lemon juice
100ml tomato juice
4-5 dashes Worcestershire sauce
2-3 drops Tabasco sauce
1 slug medium sherry
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 celery stick
1. Spoon the horseradish (if desired) into a hi-ball glass and throw the ice (or frozen cherry tomatoes) on top.
2. Pour in the vodka, squeeze in some lemon juice and top up with the tomato juice.
3. Season with the Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco and stir.
4. Pour in the sherry (over the back of a spoon), grind over some black pepper, add the celery stick and serve with a couple of paracetamol.
Near the end of the drink, take care not to swallow all the horseradish sauce at the bottom of the glass (you don’t want to bring the whole lot up again).
What’s your cure?
