Friday’s Vintage Cocktail!

Hello lovelies!

It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster of a week for me but the weekend is here, and my sweetheart is finally home from hospital! I’m so very excited to be sharing with all of you my Friday’s Vintage Cocktail blog post! On Friday’s I share a fabulous true vintage or true vintage inspired cocktail with you all to celebrate the weekend being here! As always please be sure to drink responsibly and if any younger readers come across this, be sure to abide by your states drinking laws.

Last week at our op shop tour with The Perth Pinup Community one of my beautiful friends found a fabulous little cocktail card book and asked if anyone would like it, I chimed in right away as it would be perfect for my blog! So I’m exciting to be sharing some of the fabulous vintage tiki cocktail recipes it features. The cards are set of 52 with artwork by the iconic artist Shag!

For this week’s cocktail I have for you the Equator, a decadent tropical drink! If you don’t have a suitable record for tonight’s drink I’ve found this fabulous little tiki mix on YouTube so you can enjoy your cocktail in styled.

Method:

  1. In a cocktail shaker add you ingredients with ice, shaking well, have fun with this and have a little boogie to the music you’re listen to!
  2. Pour into a fabulous glass (a collins glass is recommended on the card), using a strainer.
  3. Garnish with whatever you like, I used a lemon slice and umbrella!
  4. Sit back, and enjoy!

This cocktail is fabulous! It’s light and fruity, full of flavour but not to alcoholic in taste. I simply adore the little recipe cards by Shag and Adan Rocke, they’re artwork is simply beautiful to look at. On Monday it’s my birthday, so this weekend I’m celebrating with this cocktail the kick off to an amazing weekend!

I hope you have an amazing few days off!

Much love,
