Vodka cocktail mixed with fresh grapefruit and lemon juice.ย 

Summers in the Netherlands always seem to surprise me. When most people are preparing for fall we are getting hit by days as warm as 28C. Not that I am complaining, I mean I love fall, the clothing, pumpkins, trees with the orange leaves and so on. However, summer is just my thing, I guess that happens when you were born and raised on an island that had sunny weather all year round. So just to celebrate these last summery days I decided to share my favorite cocktail with you guys. Citrus fruits and vodka… my favorite combination!

This recipe makes 2 cocktails.

Ingredients:

1 grapefruit, juiced

1 lemon, juiced

2 shots vodka (I use Grey Goose)

Ice cubes

 

All you need to do is mix the ingredients above and then you are done.

I know, I know… you are probably thinking how simple is this… but I just love these flavors!!!

To mix it up you can garnish your drinks with some fresh mint.

 

 

My Version of a Pornstar Cocktail

My version of a Pornstar Cocktail

Cocktails are so yummy, especially if vodka is involved. Pornstar cocktails have become a favorite of mine over the past year, but it is very difficult to find a good one without it being too sweet.

So I decided to make my own, using only vodka and no passion fruit liquor and it is just the taste that I was looking for.

This recipe makes 2 cocktails.

Ingredients:

1 cup passion fruit juice

ยฝ lemon, juiced

1 egg white

2 ยฝ shots vanilla vodka

2 shots prosecco

Lemon or passion fruit slices as garnish

Handful ice cubs

 

 

Chill the glasses by filling them with ice cubes.

Combine the passion fruit juice, lemon juice, egg white and vanilla vodka in a cocktail shaker and shake for about 30 seconds. Remove and discard the ice cubes and pour the cocktail into the chilled glasses. You might need to divide in batches to make sure there is an equal amount of foam and liquid. Garnish with a slice of lemon or passion fruit and serve with a shot of prosecco on the side. Enjoy!
