HAVE A GO:
If you go out to the beach off the coast of Hawaii, the USA, Australia or South Africa, you can meet surfers catching the breaks in glowing neoprene wetsuits or on boards lit with LEDs.
At the bioluminescent algae in the Californian water which, when disturbed,
turns the waters a beautiful hue of blue.
A little something for afterwards?
An exotic vodka-based cocktail, not just delicious but eye-catching as well. The addition of grenadine at the end makes for a captivating colour gradient.
Flavour-wise, the Touch Down tends towards sweet and fruity, but the dash of lemon juice is a pleasantly crisp touch.
Too good to save for summer (especially in countries that don’t have one…) this easy-to-make drink can, and should, be enjoyed all year round.
- 40ml Zubrówka (or equivalent herb- flavoured grass vodka)
- 20ml apricot brandy
- 80ml passion fruit juice
- 30ml fresh orange juice
- 10ml fresh lemon juice
- 10ml grenadine
- To garnish: cherries, pineapple
Put the vodka, brandy and three fruit juices into a cocktail shaker and give it a good shake. Strain the liquid into a cocktail glass over ice cubes. Carefully pour the grenadine into the drink, then garnish.
Take these wise words into the night…
