SLOW DOWN BROTHER
Paying homage to to Douwe Bob, this cocktail has its roots in the Kenyan ‘medicinal’ cocktail Dawa. We are never buying over the counter cold remedies again; not only does this taste a bit like the well known hot lemon drink, we won’t care about a blocked nose after one of these!
The traditional recipe uses regular vodka, so we added lemon flavoured vodka to give it the ‘wow’ factor. It is quite sharp, so if you like your cocktails a little sweeter you can go ahead and add more honey.
STRENGTH: 4/5 / SWEETNESS: 2/5 / DIFFICULTY: Medium
