A great man once said:
“Cocktails are like women, they come in all shapes, sizes and colours, but, just like a women, at the heart of every cocktail there Is a cold, icy centre ready to rip your life apart without a moment’s notice”
That man was me. The Great Andrew Cornelius Groves. I’m 31 years old, overweight, almost homeless and I work in a place named after a toad.
That place is the brick and timber miracle known as NATTERJACKS, situated on Braustone Gate, opposite that HUB place (where all the great unwashed of Leicester go to listen to weird music called “Dubstep” and “Drum and Bass”. Personally I like a bit of Frankie goes to Hollywood, but that’s just me.) and the Obar (you know, where all the cool kids go). Anyway that’s where we are, Braunstone gate (not an actual gate by the way).
When I say we, I am of course talking about myself and my partner (not like that!) Mr Ryan Tailor, self-proclaimed “ROCK LEGEND” and MASTER OF ALL LIQUIDS”. We come together (once again, not like that!) to bring you wonderful concoctions to put in your mouth.
Here’s one of them:
5 x Blackberries
25ml Chambord Black raspberry liqueur
12.5ml Olmeca Gold Tequila
12.5ml Monin Green Apple Syrup
12.5ml Fresh Lemon Juice
10ml Vanilla Syrup
Muddle down the blackberries in a cocktail shaker, add the Chambord and the Tequila and shake with the lemon juice, vanilla and apple syrup. Double strain into a short inverness glass and stir with crushed ice and garnish with a cheeky blackberry or a twist of lemon peel.
Well, that’s all from us today.
We hope to see you in NATTERJACKS this weekend.
See you soon kids. x
