The Julia

To commemorate our first female Prime Minister, I have named a cocktail in her honour.  I give you The Julia: Its red, its warm, and it gets the job done right every time.  Yeah! You go girl!!!

You will need to infuse some cinnamon sticks in a bottle of vodka for a week or so to get the bronze tinge.  Naturally I just had some on hand!

  • A martini glass (or three)
  • A cocktail shaker
  • Caster sugar
  • Powdered cinnamon
  • Ice
  • 2 shots of cinnamon infused vodka
  • 2 shots of apple schnapps
  • Some soda water
  • Really thin slices of red apple
  • Fresh tamarillos

Mix the sugar and cinnamon on a plate. Wet the rim of the martini glass and roll it in the cinnamon sugar.  Put some ice in the glass to keep it cold.

Put some more ice in a cocktail shaker, add the alcohol and shake. Empty the ice out of the martini glass and pour in the alcohol from the shaker.  Squeeze the tamarillo seeds out, separate from the pulp, and drop into the glass (about half a tamarillo per glass).  Stir gently.  Top with a dash of soda water and a slice of apple.

Enjoy your warm inner glow. 🙂

    I love The Julia, the colour, the flavours, the simple message. I’m inspired to design a full menu, I’m not in a rush to do this, as The Julia is here to stay!!!

    Genius! I’m thinking of maybe mixing a bit of ground red chilli in with the cinnamon sugar. Because our PM has a bit of a bite.
