MY NEW FAVOURITE DRINK ON A SUMMER EVENINGI love Campari. And I sometimes like a drink when I am cooking in the evening.
Decided to do a cool drink using the blackberries I had picked from the hedge.
|Emma Hamilton cocktail!|
Meanwhile, I put on my favourite Johnny Hodges music and listened to 'I Got it Bad (And That Ain't Good)'.
Here is an idea: put your glass in the fridge or freezer to get cold, then...
Put several ice cubes in the glass after it is cold. Add a few luciously ripe and juicy blackberries and crush them a bit.
Squeeze an orange and add the juice to the blackberries and ice.
Then add a good glug of Campari (which ideally will have been in the fridge too).
I put in a couple of springs of mint and a slice of orange, then I drank it - I must admit I drank it quite quickly!
I have called it Emma Hamilton Cocktail, she may have liked it.
