London Cocktail Week 2014 is “a unique celebration of our capital’s unrivalled cocktail culture.” This week, some of London’s best bars throw open their doors to showcase the best cocktails the city has to offer. The week includes pop-ups, parties and tastings, creating a festival to inspire, educate and unite cocktail lovers.
We thought we’d celebrate by sharing with you our favourite Chi-based cocktails and mocktails (for the non-drinkers out there!) so you can join in the fun at home. You could even invite your friends over before you head out and create your own Chi Cocktails… We’d love to see what you come up with!
Below we have the Chi Mango & Coconut Vodka Crush, the Chilli-Choc Espresso Mintini and the Chi-Chi. We’ve kept the ingredients simple and suggested alternatives where possible, so making them should be a breeze…
Chi Mango & Coconut Vodka Crush
4oz Chi Coconut Water
2oz Funkin Mango Puree (or Mango Juice)
2oz Orange Juice
1x Orange Wedges
Fill a glass with ice cubes, and pour over the vodka. In a separate pitcher or blender, mix together the coconut water, mango puree and orange juice, then add to the vodka and ice. Stir, and top with a little more crushed ice and soda water if desired. Finish with a slice of orange to garnish.
Mocktail Option 1
Chilli-Choc Espresso Mintini
2oz Chi Espresso Coconut Milk
1oz Funkin Liquid Chocolate (or 1oz melted 60% Dark Choc)
1oz Home-made Chilli Syrup (Chilli Powder + Sugar + Water)
1 dash Tabasco
1x Mint Sprigs
Add all liquid ingredients together, shake/stir and strain (a sieve works just as well as a strainer!) and pour into a Martini Glass. Finish with a Mint Sprig garnish.
Mocktail Option 2
2oz Chi Coconut Water with Pineapple
2oz Pineapple Juice
2oz Coconut Cream
Blend together, serve over ice, and finish with a slice of pineapple.
