cocktail of the week: the stolen moment
Jade Hurst shares her go-to summer libation.
I’m sure you enjoy having friends around for a casual dinner and drinks. Who doesn’t. We usually opt for something a little out of the ordinary when offering our buddies a drink. Huddled around our pride and joy – a retro bar standing proudly in the corner of our humble abode, we get mixing.
If your usual offering for guests is a beer or wine, sure no problem. But I suggest you put down the wine knife and step away from the six pack. This is something that even the most inept of hosts can handle, welcome to the often overlooked art of cocktail creation.
This is really easy to whip up and makes you look like some kind of a cocktail aficionado (aka show off). We can all make something amazing with a few simple ingredients, here’s how:
The Stolen Moment:
Stolen white rum
Chi mineral water
Add ice to a short glass, pour in Stolen rum to your desired buzz level, squeeze in a couple of wedges of lime, fill 3/4 of the glass with apple juice and finish with a splash of Chi.
