Hóóker Highball

Recipe by Tim Weigel

Ingredients:

  • 6 Thai Basil Leaves
  • 1.75 oz. Granny Smith Apple Juice
  • 1.25 oz. Giffard Fraise de Bois (Strawberry) Liqueur
  • 2 oz. Wódka vodka
  • 3 oz. Fever Tree Elderflower Tonic

Preparation: Shake all ingredients (except elderflower tonic) with ice. Add tonic to mix and double strain over fresh ice.

Garnish: Strawberry and Thai basil sprig

Glassware: Highball

Cocktail Inspiration:

While researching the Wódka vodka I came across the marketing slogan, “Escort Quality, Hooker Prices” and it gave me a chuckle. Quite cheeky and clever. So, I could imagine a hooker at a Vegas hotel sipping on the Hóóker Highball and imagine what flavors she could appreciate. What can I say, inspiration can come from anywhere! This cocktail uses some fancy schmancy ingredients without taking itself too seriously.
