Well I never, yes it’s raining again ! Lets hope this isn’t our typical English summer starting… The hot weather in May/June was fantastic and now, just when the kids are starting to break up from school the grey clouds arrive.
As the rain is still pouring down outside this got me thinking about some of the warm places around the world. We recently were very lucky to be able to visit the beautiful island of Koh Samui. With an average temperature of around 28/32c most of the year round, the sun, sand and humid heat requires something ice cold to keep all parts refreshed and eases you into an afternoon snooze.
Being in Thailand we were surrounded with lots of fresh lime and fresh ginger, so if the sun ever returns to the UK you have to try this drink !
Koh Samui Ridgeway
2 shots of Gold Tequila.
2 shots of Fresh Lime Juice.
A good thumb sized lump of Fresh Ginger.
1 Wheel of lime for garnish.
In a shaker add the tequila. Chop the ginger very well and add this to the shaker. Muddle and leave for 5 minutes for the tequila and ginger to infuse. Now add the lime and shake hard with ice. Pour into a highball glass filled with lots of ice. You could fine-strain if you don’t want the ginger bits but try them – they are great. Top up with sprite and add your lime wheel.
Now sit back, shut your eyes and listen to the waves washing against the sea shore ( or the rain up the window ) and with your face next to a hot radiator, slowly sip….

Thursday in the Twittersphere is fast becoming know as Thirsty Thursday.
So not to feel left out and following on from our last vodka post, the Vodka Bling Bling, today we bring you a Moscow Mule.
Again we are using Adnams of Southwolds vodka.
Its prepared in their shiney new The Copper House distillery.
2 shots of Vodka
2 shot of Fresh lime juice.
1 Wedge of lime
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add the vodka, lime and top with ginger ale. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
Living in Suffolk has lots of advantages.
- We’re a stones throw from the sea.
- We have the best fish and chips.
- There are loads of good pubs.
- We have a few fantastic local brewers.
Adnams of Southwold is one such great local brewer.
Voted Brewery of the Year 2011 they’ve now opened a distillery !
The Copper House
Now producing a range of vodka, gin and limoncello we were lucky enough to receive a few bottles. It’s summer and while you can’t eat enough good English strawberries, we love raspberries…especially in a cocktail. So we thought we’d mix up a few cocktails with the little red fruits. Here is a nice shot based cocktail to kick off the night.
Raspberry Bling Bling
1/2 shot of Vodka
1/2 shot of lime juice
1/4 shot sugar syrup
Muddle the fruit and add to a shaker with all other ingredients. Shake with ice and strain into a shot glass. Top with a fizz. Delicious.
