Cola Cube Cocktail
Well despite still feeling very ill with a chest infection, I decided that, yes, I would go out to celebrate a friend's birthday!
So off I went in my glad rags!
We started off in a bar for some typical pub grub. The veggie choices were not extensive, there was :
a grated cheese salad
baked potatoes with the above toppings
As you can see, not very inspired!
I decided on the macaroni cheese and it was actually very tasty. It was accompanied by fries and sweetcorn, a somewhat bizarre paring, but hey! We washed this down with some rather bland white wine! But then I do have a stinking cold, so it could have been divine!
We then toddled off down the street to a rather pretentious cocktail bar, where I enjoyed a Margarita or two and some great chat.
We finished off in a pub, with nearly all the same people that were in the cocktail bar! This is where I sampled the delight that is a cola cube cocktail. I don't know if cola cubes are of worldwide fame, but I love them! And this tasty little cocktail had one meltingly nestled right at the bottom! My dentist would not approve!
This is the recipe used in the bar last night, I think I will give it a go, just not this weekend!
1 part Spiced rum
1/2 part Blackcurrant cordial
1 part Lemonade
1 part Ice cubes
1 cola cube
Mix all the ingredients bar the cola cube in a coktail shaker(or a flask). Pour into a cocktail glass containing a cola cube.
Beware, it is only for those with a sweet tooth!
You can buy cola cubes (Kola Kubes) online from A Quarter Of . The cola pips are good too!
A good time was had by all (especially the birthday girl) and I didn't even have a sore head this morning! That macaroni cheese must have lined my stomach!
