cheeky

Wednesday night, headed to Cheek with my clubbing buddy for a night out ;). Unfortunately, the line outside Red Sea was despicable as usual, so we went to the Subi Hotel to kickstart. You probably can't see it, but in the photo at the bottom, a Tequila for her and a Jam Donut for me... which was absolutely delicious. I'm pretty sure I licked the shotglass clean, I have a MASSIVE sweet tooth. How ladylike.

Then we decided to go all out, it being the last week of uni holidays and all, and orderd a 'Pear Sour' cocktail, modelled below by the lovely Kylie. Being the biggest juvie, I've only ever had really sweet fruity cocktails like the Fruit Tingle or Sex on the Beach, or milky ones with heaps of Baileys in them. So I felt very refined indeed having this one hehe :)

The restaurant connected to the bar had the prettiest lighting. My friend tells me it's an excellent place for a dinner date. Oh, if only! x)

Jam Donut
  • 2/3 oz. Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1/3 oz. Chambord Raspberry Liqueur
  • 1 tsp sugar syrup
  • 2 pinches sugar

    Coat rim of shotglass with sugar using the syrup to make it stick. Add the Chambord Raspberry Liqueur to the glass and carefully layer the Baileys on top.

    Pear Sour
  • 1/2 oz. spiced sugar syrup
  • 1.5 oz. Absolut Pear
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 slice pear

    Mix all ingredients in shaker with cracked ice, shake, and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with slice of fresh pear.
