FOUREYES THE BOOK: THE COCKTAILS













For the FOUREYES book launch party last week we created a pair of cocktails using the incredible Black Robin Rare Gin and Blue Duck Rare Vodka, produced right here in New Zealand.

As you can imagine, we had a blast designing the cocktails and conducting all the necessary 'research' required. We came up with two summery and refreshing drinks. The FOUREYES Sweet | Sour, a strawberry and balsamic vodka-based cocktail, and the FOUREYES Cool | Hot, with gin, cool cucumber and spicy chilli.

The recipes are below for your drinking pleasure. Happy weekend.

1 large strawberry
2 rounds cucumber
15ml lemon juice
15ml simple syrup

FOUREYES COOL | HOT
