Colonsay East 8 Hold Up Vodka Cocktail

East 8 Hold Up

Colonsay East 8 Hold Up Vodka cocktail was created in 2010 by Kevin Armstrong at Milk & Honey in London 🇬🇧 we came across this recipe on Diffords Guide website.

Combining pineapple & lime with a bittersweet Aperitivo, this will draw comparisons to the classic Jungle Bird. However, with a vodka base in place of rum; and Aperol instead of Campari - this is a lighter, fresher sip. The addition of a touch of passion fruit syrup also works really well. In place of Aperol, we’ve used Peychaud’s Aperitivo, which is delicious 😋

Recipe and ingredients below:

45ml Colonsay Vodka

15ml Peychaud’s Aperitivo

20ml Pineapple Juice

15ml Lime Juice

7.5ml Rich Simple Syrup

5ml Passion Fruit Syrup

Shake all ingredients with ice for 12-15 seconds, then strain into an Old Fashioned glass over fresh ice. We've garnished with mint, lime & passion fruit for extra wow-factor!
