Killing Kittens KoKKtail Of The Month- Champagne Punch

Killing Kittens are delighted as always to have the hottest award winning Cocktail Master around,  Carl Anthony Brown! Carl has designed for us, our very own KK June KoKKtail

“So whilst traveling this past month or so, I couldn’t’ help but go into one of the great bars of Singapore. You walk into the bright lights of the lobby at the Marriot hotel, Marbled floors, high ceilings & golden luxury. Those night owls having a naughty night out pass through the bright lobby as quickly as possible. You walk to the back where the only shadow is cast and here is the door hidden away. A knock, wink and rye smile gets you in. Walk through into the dark candle lit speakeasy bar and you find I beautiful hideaway. Groups having a laugh and socialising, couples seeing what they can get away with in dark corners.  I was entertained to see there latest rules written up on the wall.

“Men: 

No clothes on, No drinks. 

Women:

No clothes on, free champagne.”

Not sure you’re going to get away with that marketing campaign in the UK, but it brought a smile to my face. I thought back to my last epic kittens party. I wondered to myself, free Champagne is always good & How many of kittens & toms out there are sitting drinking a glass in the nude right now?”

The Kokktail – 

So with Bubbles in mind, I thought we should go for something Sparkling this month.

I’ve chosen the ‘Champagne Punch’

“The world has never known greater devotees of Champagne that the miscellaneous gamblers, actors, politicians, pugilists, writers and other players..” Punch, David Wondrich

I think we all fit in here right..

One bottle of champagne, Prosecco

150 ml Ceylon Arrack (Optional extra Kick)

100g Coconut sugar Or Light brown sugar

1 Orange sliced

1 Lemon Juiced

3 slices of Pineapple

60ml Raspberry Syrup

Mix the sugar into the lemon juice until dissolved. Slice the pineapple and Orange thinly and press into the sugar (and Arrack if used) Add the Raspberry syrup, Pour the bubbles, stir together. Chill it down in the fridge or freezer. When you’re ready to serve it fill it with ice and stir. If you can, use one big block of ice, this gives a far better result.
