Yes, you read right, this post is called Meowington’s. And I bet you’re wondering what a Meowington is right? Well, it’s my new fancy pants cocktail that I’ve created to tickle my taste buds.  A few weeks ago Ladbrokes sent me a pretty awesome party pack. Within said party pack there was a pretty awesome pro cocktail making set. I’ve not had time to throw a proper party with it yet, but believe me, my taste buds have been having one of their own with this little beauty.

So what do you need to make a Meowington? Well, first off a friend who works in a cocktail bar comes in handy. And other ingredients are:

2 measures of Pinky Vodka

1 measure of Vodka

A splash of Violet Bar Syrup

A splash of pink grapefruit cordial

Top up with Lemonade and serve with a garnish of lime.


This cocktail doesn’t cost loads to make either. A bottle of Pinky Vodka can be found at Tesco for around £15 (not the £30odd they sell it for in Selfridges!) and the violet bar syrup was from Makro, which cost around £4 when I bought it a while back. And the rest cost a few quid here and there. It was mainly stuff I had in! The taste is lovely, the violet syrup adds a sweet kick to the bitterness of the grapefruit and it’s very easy drinking.

Even Kitty was in on the Meowington action.

 What do you think? Is a Meowington something you’ll be asking for at your local?
