Dirty Dancing at The Electric

Thank you so much to everyone that joined us for Dirty Dancing with Cocktails on Sunday afternoon. We had a blast and hope you did too.

As promised, these are the cocktail recipes so you can recreate them at home:

Kellerman Cooler - the perfect arrival drink at Kellerman's Resort Hotel

60 ml white wine (Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio)

15 ml good vodka (cheap vodka will be the only thing you taste)

15 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

12.5 ml elderflower cordial

15 ml orange juice

Stir the above ingredients in a tall glass with cubed ice and top up with a dash of Sprite or 7UP to sit on the top with a sprig of mint to garnish

'I Carried a Watermelon' Daiquiri - Nobody gets into a Dirty Dancing party without a Watermelon!

40 ml white rum, we used Barcardi

20 ml Aperol

20 ml sugar syrup (buy ready-made or make your own 50/50 sugar and water brought to the boil and left to cool)

20 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

50 ml watermelon juice (one large watermelon will give you approx one litre of juice - blitz it and then sieve it, but you can buy watermelon juice in cartons)

Pop all the ingredients into a shaker, do the 'mashed po-tater' with your shaker, pour into a martini glass, tumbler or small wine glass, top up with crushed ice and add a piece of watermelon to the rim or a Haribo Watermelon Sour

Thyme of My Life - we had to shoehorn this in somehow!

15 ml runny honey

15 ml sugar syrup

50 ml white rum

20 ml freshly squeezed lime juice

25 ml apple juice, not from concentrate

Add the above ingredients to a tall glass, stir well and then add ice. If you add honey to a glass with ice you'll have a sticky lump in your glass that won't dissolve. Top with a splash soda. Use a sprig of thyme to garnish but not before giving it a few slaps in the palm of your hand to release the oils and aromatics from the herb.

Nobody puts Baby in the Corner .. Star Martini

40 ml vanilla vodka, we used Absolut

20 ml Passoa

15 ml Monin passion fruit syrup

20 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

Shaken vigorously over ice, poured into a martini glass and served with a shot of ... Babycham
