And, why not try our new Spicy Dorset Island cocktail which is a lovely combination of spice, power and exotic acidity. Or, why not try creating it at home with this recipe:
Spicy Dorset Island
-30 ml of local Dorset Black Cow vodka (made from cows milk) infused with vanilla and chilli
-20 ml of lime juice
-50 ml of passion fruit puree
-a dash of vanilla syrup
Decorate with passion fruit and a passion fruit chocolate truffle.
Place 1 red chilli cut in the middle and 2 vanilla pods cut in the middle inside a 70cl bottle vodka. Leave it to macerate for 3 days or more depending how spicy you want your vodka.
In a shaker place your ingredients with ice and shake until cold and double strain in a cocktail glass. Either decorate with half a passion fruit, or do as we do and place a lovely passion fruit chocolate truffle inside an empty passion fruit shell.
Now just relax and enjoy!
