How to make Don’t Touch The Turtles
1.5 oz Absolut Elyx Vodka
.75 oz Lilikoi puree
.5 oz Simple syrup
Splash of prosecco
2 half-wheel orange slices
6 mint leaves
Glassware: Absolut Elyx Copper Tortoise vessel
Garnish: Orange slices, mint leaves
Method: Combine mint, orange slices, and simple syrup in a shaker and muddle. Add Absolut Elyx, lilikoi puree and ice and shake. Strain over fresh ice into the copper tortoise vessel, then top with a splash of prosecco.
Chic copper coupes will make those celebratory champagne cocktails taste that much more special, in addition to being embellished with a winter wheat motif in tune with vodka martinis.
You’ve heard of Absolut before and this is their emblem release, produced in the South of Sweden from a single estate that has been cultivating wheat since the 1400s. Suffice to say, the terroir is real. With a further nod to their heritage, all of the liquid is distilled via a vintage copper column that dates back to 1921. Vibrant, sophisticated and rather sexy in design, this smooth sensation offers white chocolate, dry spice and a macadamia, walnut and hazelnut complexity. Count me in.
A great mixing glass is crucial for making stirred cocktails. This glass from Poland is a great mixing jug that comes with a copper barspoon, jigger, and julep strainer — literally everything you need to get mixing. The glass has unique damask detailing to help it really stand out and match the copper bar tools.
This is made by pros for everyone. The jug is a single piece of crystalline glass, which means it needs to be hand washed and is not dishwasher safe. Otherwise, this is pro gear for anyone looking to up their cocktail game. It also comes in a nice box for presentation and storage.
