A sophisticated addition of leopard print is quite a fun part of fashion! From subtle collars, handbags and scarves to more blatant swimsuits, coats, hats and onesies!
Whether you enjoy such an African touch to your wardrobe or not, now you can add something spotty to your sundowner selection. We make a seriously sexy Leopartini wine cocktail inspired by our dedicated support of the Cape Leopard Trust and the plight of the Cape Mountain Leopard.
So whether you are inspired by the latest trends and fads or worried about our beautiful leopards, add some fun and fabulosity to your repertoire of winter drinks with the Leopard’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc Leopartini!
All you need:
25 ml vodka
12,5 ml ginger syrup
50 ml berry juice
Blueberries for Garnish
Ginger syrup Ingredients
375 ml water
250 ml sugar
60 ml coarsely chopped, unpeeled fresh ginger
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ teaspoon whole black peppercorns
Ginger syrup Method
In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar, chopped ginger, freshly squeezed lemon juice and black peppercorns. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat and let simmer uncovered until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain syrup through a fine-mesh sieve and discard solids. Transfer syrup to a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Cocktail Method – stirred, not shaken…
Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice-cubes.
Stir for 30 seconds.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with the blueberries.
