Every year needs a sexy signature cocktail to clutch at all the best parties – for this year’s Indian summer it’s the Reverse Martini. The core ingredient of this delectable tongue tantaliser, is the limited edition Couture rosé wine, exclusive to Threshers. Set to be the drink-on-ice tipple of choice for 2007.
To make the Reverse just pour some Stormhoek Couture over some ice. Add some raspberry vodka. Add some fresh raspberries or strawberries and lemon. Maybe add a sprig of mint. Voila! You now have the Reverse Martini, the perfect drink for summer.
As it is made specifically to be drunk over ice (in order not to dilute – like regular wine would), this new wine offers many new ways to drink rosé. If you like the sound of mixing up a few cocktails with an amazing rosé as the base, then try serving the finished article in a martini glass with a pink sugar frosting – it looks delicious as well as tasting great! For the less adventurous, try the simple but thirst-quenchingly delightful tumbler with big blocks of ice and a slice of lemon! Whether it’s served with pureed fruit, or a hint of mint, make sure that you don’t forget that ice.
Wine purists may balk at the idea of Rosé being drunk in any way other than a normal wine glass and without ice. But for the real world that most of us have to live in, their opinion is increasingly irrelevant. Whatever. This “mash-up” way of enjoying wine has long been the norm in South Africa; we simply thought it would be a good idea to export the idea to the rest of the planet.
