Cocktail: “The 5th Week Blues”

This week’s cocktail is a pre-emptive pick-me-up before 5th week finally hits, with orange-flavoured Curaçao to sweeten up this sad, sad time. The salt-rimmed glass is worth putting in the effort for –one might say it’s rubbing salt in the wound of your mid-term despair. So if you’re feeling blue this week, then just look at this drink in the knowledge that it is, without a doubt, feeling bluer than you.

To make:

  • 1 part blue Curaçao
  • 1 part vodka
  • Add lemonade to taste
  • Garnish with lime
  • Rim glass with salt
