Cocktail of the Month – Electric Feel by Amber Jeffryes
Our Cocktail of the Month for September brings an exclusive look at the award-winning Electric Feel, created by young, innovative mixologist Amber Jeffryes. The creation of this drink came from a competition set up by Matthew Uden, UK Brand Ambassador for fruity liqueur Chambord. The brief for the competition was to design an exciting Chambord-based cocktail for the London Cocktail Club (LCC) which would be judged by a panel of experts.
Amber’s winning drink is included on LCC’s Flavour of the Month menu for August and being enjoyed by numerous punters. Speaking to Amber, we discovered that this was surprisingly the first competition she has entered. Her idea was for a festival themed drink, with inspiration coming from seeing images of festival-goers all over social media and she came up with a simple, fruity creation that could be enjoyed again and again. If the flavour wasn’t enough, the cocktail is served beautifully in a lightbulb shaped glass (hence the name) and decorated with a glow stick around the lightbulb to tie in with the festival vibe. Electric Feel is the “talk of the town”, so make sure it features on your summer cocktail menu:
- 30ml Bacardi Gold
- 20ml Chambord
- 20ml Peach Purée
- 20ml Passion Fruit Purée
- 10ml Vanilla Paste
- 5 dashes Fee Brothers Cranberry Bitters
- Pour Bacardi and Chambord into shaker and stir in well
- Add Peach, Passion Fruit and Vanilla to the mix and stir together
- Finish with Cranberry and make sure everything is churned
- Serve in lightbulb glass over crushed ice. Garnish with mint sprig and add mini glow stick to glass.
