Hair of the Dog Big Breakfast Cocktail from Stoli® Vodka:
Stoli® Vodka has come up with some new ways to enjoy cocktails using readily available items in your kitchen and fridge. They are called the Stoli® Cupboard Cocktails (and that’s a bloke’s cupboard) so you don’t need to have anything wild and bizarre to create great drinks.
One of my faves is the Stoli® Big Breakfast, or as I would call it a Stoli® Hair of the Dog. Now cocktails for me in the morning is almost a step too far, but it comes with toast which makes it all right. It is also served in a jam jar, which saves on washing up delicate glasses and adds that sense of understated style to your drink – or, lets you believe for one minute you are a mixologist in Shoreditch…
Watch Stoli brand ambassador Matt Dakers in a short two-minute video of how to make the perfect Stoli® Big Breakfast cocktail. It will give you ideas on how to be creative with what you have on hand.
The Stoli® Premium vodka has a great taste, spicy and warming with a real aroma which works great with the fruit juices to build a great cocktail base. Now, what had I planned for the rest of the day?
- 2 Egg Cups Stoli Premium Vodka
- 2 Egg Cups Grapefruit Juice or use a whole Grapefruit
- 1 Egg Cups Orange Juice
- Half Egg Cups Maple Syrup
- 1 tablespoon Brown Sauce HP, obviously!
- 1 tablespoon Tomato Ketchup Heinz, obviously!
- 1 pinch Salt and Pepper
- 1 medium slice Toast
- Cut a slice of bread and pop in the toaster. You can consider this your timer!
- Add tomato ketchup, brown sauce and maple syrup into a jam jar
- Add the grapefruit juice into the jam jar along with a dash of salt and pepper and orange juice. A freshly squeezed grapefruit is better, but what single bloke keeps fresh fruit in the fridge?
- Pour 2 egg cups of Stoli Premium into the mix and top with ice. Don’t add too much ice if you add any at all.
- Seal the jar with a lid and shake well.
- The toast should be ready by now. Cover generously with marmalade and cut into soldiers. Use a soldier or two to garnish.
An Egg Cup may seem very small, but they hold a lot, and 5 egg cups of liquid will usually fill a small jam jar.
