Get any party (or book club) started with a Turkish Delight cocktail

I love my book club. They may have turned me into a binge drinker (at the first meeting I only drank sparkling grape juice. By the end of the second meeting, I had a glass of wine. Now the only non-alcoholic beverages we have is water to keep our livers alive, and coffee with lots of sugar before we go home), but we read great books (usually), laugh a lot (always), and have the best time ever!

Turkish Delight cocktailOur October meeting was kicked off with the most delectable cocktail I’ve had since News Cafe‘s Cherry Gimlet – a Turkish Delight cocktail. So I absolutely have to share the recipe – it’s extremely simple and you only need a few ingredients:

  • 2 tots Vodka
  • Dash sugar syrup (see recipe below)
  • Add a cube of good quality Turkish Delight and crushed ice
  • Fill up with Sparkling Cranberry & Hibiscus (available from Woolworths)

To make the sugar syrup:

Boil 1 cup of water and 2 cups of sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add a dash of rose water and let cool.

Let me know how you like it – or better still, invite me over to judge your skills! 😉
