Pick your Poison: Best of British


Pick your Poison: Best of British

IMG_0937 (2)

Back in the day, the phrase, “Best of British” was used as a way of saying, ‘Good Luck!’ to someone…especially when you thought they didn’t have much of a chance at something.

After the results of last week’s referendum, which I shan’t dwell on, this phrase seemed like an appropriate one to give my cocktail shot I concocted last week. Even though it feels like doom and gloom now, we will get through this and we will make it work. We have to…and it’ll be better once we have had a couple of these to drink, I promise 😉

It’s not a long drink, it’s one to be served in a small port glass which can be sipped…or downed in one go if you so wish! It looks potent, but it’s actually really lovely and my beloved informed me it tasted a bit like skittles! I think that means he liked it…


25ml Raspberry Syrup (I used Tate and Lyle but you could also use raspberry crusha milkshake syrup!)

25ml Blue Curacao

25ml Vodka (I used Vanilla Vodka)


1 – Measure your 3 ingredients out into 3 seperate shot glasses

2 – Using the back of a teaspoon held over your chosen small glass (to steady the flow of the liquid) pour the Raspberry Syrup over the back of the spoon and into the glass.

3 – Now do the same with the Blue Curacao, ensuring you steady the flow over the back of the spoon so the layers appear.

4- Finally, repeat pouring over the back of the spoon with the vodka so that this settles on the top.

And there you have it! The Union Jack in a glass!

Happy drinking folks – stiff upper lip, keep calm and carry on, and if all else fails, have a G&T.

If you make this drink, do share it with me over on my Facebook page or over on my Instagram by tagging me @lifeisknutts.
