Eloisa Squeezer - Citrus Summer Sipping

Whilst rambling through a meadow in the Oxford countryside back in Spring 2019, I was asking my friend Eloisa what flavours she loves in cocktails - she replied with Citrus! The zingier (Zingyer?) the better.
It was during that weekend that I had made the conscious decision to create Yellow Yacht. My mind began racing with ideas and I spent a fun bit of time in the cocktail lab coming up with this number.
It wasn't until a few months into the pandemic, that I sent Eloisa her own cocktail kit for the definitive taste test. I'm pleased to say it passed the test, and I've sent her refills since.
Here's the recipe for you all to enjoy. Be warned, this one is strong.
If you're not a fan of vodka, simply eliminate from the recipe or replace it with white rum or gin.
You can use cubed ice if you have no crushed ice to hand or just can't be bothered with the faff of crushing your own
You can also serve with a fresh sprig of mint
If you want to make it sans booze, use these following swaps:
50ml Vodka for 50ml Strykk Not Vodka
50ml Limoncello for 25ml Monin Lemon Rantcho and juice of half a lime
50ml Cointreau for 50ml freshly squeezed orange juice
Here are the links for the ingredients. I'll get a kick back for each purchase at no extra cost for you :)
