Cocktail recipe: 'Be My Strawberry Appleteaser' (11 Sept 2010)

Inspired by Dita Von Teese

I was so impressed with the taste of the Preshafruit Valencia that I was curious to try the Apple & Strawberry ($4.99/1 litre) and Apple & Passionfruit ($4.99/1 litre) flavours. The Apple & Strawberry ends up being my preferred one out the two which had a nice balance of apple and strawberry flavour. The passionfruit in the other isn't as noticeable but it does have quite a refreshing taste. The distinctive flavour of the Apple & Strawberry inspired me to create a cocktail using fresh strawberries, Bombay Sapphire Gin and Cointreau. With the Cointreau Global Brand Ambassador Dita Von Teese set to perform her world renowned Be Cointreauversial show in Sydney on 16 September 2010 I've named this cocktail the Be My Strawberry Appleteaser — how awesome would it be to be invited to this VIP special event :-)

This is going on my must-make cocktail list for summer. Sounds divine! Dita is just gorgeous. I'd love to have been at her show.

hi phouc, you don't really taste the gin too much but i guess you could put vodka or barcadi instead.

hi suse, i just got mine from Coles. i think Woolworths has them as well.

hi emma, i've also come across a ginger ninja. combine vodka, apple juice and dry ginger ale plus a dash of bitters. great summer drink :-)
