So, you’ve found yourself tucked in bed by 8pm, watching episode five of the new Netflix series that everybody cannot.stop.talking about… but you just don’t get the hype? Your weekend’s become a dressing-gown-and-green-tea blur? Missing that spring in your step?
Well, you’ve come to the right place.
We get it, we really do. The winter slump is real. That’s why we thought it was about time we share our recipe for The Garden Reyka cocktail. It’s a refreshing, new concoction which is the perfect pick-me-up (courtesy of Reyka vodka and plenty of Red Bull Tropical Edition) and a sure thing to get the party started.
Fear not, Netflix will be there when you get back. In the meantime, here’s how to create The Garden Reyka:
50ml Reyka vodka
25ml Elderflower cordial
25ml Apple juice
Red Bull Tropical Edition
Sprig of mint
1 Lime wedge
Grab your mimosa glass and fill it with cubed ice. Add the Reyka vodka, apple juice, elderflower cordial and squeeze in both limes. Give this a vigorous shake, before topping with Red Bull Tropical Edition. Throw some crushed ice on top with a lime wedge, a sprig of mint and one raspberry.
There you have it. A cocktail that’s light, refreshing and now, yours.
