We’re sippin’ on sunshine in Revolution Bars up and down the country with our summer in a glass cocktail, the Short Fuse Sunshine.

Our Short Fuse Sunshine cocktail is kind of a visual representation of what bonfire night would look like if it was in summer. There’s sparklers paired with pineapple leaves and fruity flavours and honestly, it’s that good, we’re contemplating protesting bonfire night is moved to August!

Want to bring a little sunshine into your own home? Well here’s how:


Boston tin

Hurricane glass

Short Fuse Sunshine Ingredients

37.5ml Sailor Jerry rum

12.5ml Malibu

12.5ml Watermelon syrup

25ml Strawberry purée

12.5ml Lemon juice

50ml Ting

Garnish with a pineapple leaf, slice of grapefruit and compulsory sparkler


Short Fuse Sunshine Recipe

  1. Fill a Boston tin with cubed ice and then add all your ingredients, apart from what you’ll be garnishing with (sparklers are dramatically less effective once put through a cocktail shaker)
  2. Shake your Boston tin like you’re gonna shake it on the dance floor once summer arrives… or until correctly mixed
  3. Fill your hurricane glass with cubed ice and strain that sweet flavour of summer into the glass
  4. Garnish with your fruit and then get the partayyy started with the help of a mini sparkler on top!

Whether it’s sunny or snowing outside, summer is officially here inside your house, so grab your shades and get sipping!
