One of the many things we cherish on balmy days is a relaxing icy cold beverage.
Our good friends at Heilala Vanilla have put together a few mouth-watering cocktail recipes featuring their premium vanilla extract and syrup.
Our favourite this week is the Vanilla Passion Martini...
1 tablespoon Heilala vanilla sugar on saucer
1 egg white, whisked to frothy
2 ounces/60 mls Passion Fruit vodka
1 teaspoon Heilala vanilla syrup
Juice of half a lime
Dip a clean finger in egg white and run around rim of martini glass. Dip glass in Heilala vanilla sugar and allow to dry.
Fill a martini shaker with ice. Add vodka, lime juice and Heilala vanilla syrup. Shake vigorously until well blended. Strain and pour into prepared martini glass.
