I am a big cocktail fan and always on the hunt for the new hot drink. I think my love for cocktails grew from watching Sex And The City at a very young age and dreaming of hanging out in New York drinking Cosmos. Whenever Liam and I go on holiday we try to find out what the locals drink and have a taste. In fact we went to Venice for the first time together back in 2008 and found out that Aperol existed. Back then no one in the UK was drinking it and you definitely couldn’t buy it at your local supermarket like you can now. On a recent trip to Barcelona I drunkenly stumbled across a scrummy cachaca called Capucana, unfortunately I am still yet to find a UK seller so I can relive my Spanish cocktails.
I was recently sent a bottle of Soho Juice which is a new cocktail mixer created by two friends. For those of us trying to be a little bit healthier but still want to have a weekend tipple with their friends this may be your answer. It has a very fresh taste predominately of cucumber but with a citrus buzz. If you are a fan of Henricks and tonic which is typically garnished with cucumber I would highly recommend this mixer as your new staple. The Soho Juice company unfortunately aren’t currently selling their drink in shops yet those of you lucky Liverpudlians can drink The Soho in numerous bars across the city. Considering Zoe and Alfie aka Zalfie have spent a day vlogging in Liverpool recently I have a feeling this city is about to become even more popular.
I have a little booklet that the gents at The Soho Juice Company sent me and it is full of cocktail recipes that feature The Soho cucumber drink. One particular cocktail that caught my eye was The Sundown yet when I went to make it I didn’t have all of the ingredients so have made a few mini adaptations. Follow my recipe below for my take on The Sundown yet with some passion fruit. Liam and I adored this cocktail and I know everyone else will as well. Let me know if you try it and send me pictures 🙂
