HP's Ultralife Cocktail
We were invited to a really neat press event by HP, where they revealed new Ultrabook and Sleekbook systems. We’ll be doing up a review on the new HP Envy-4 range in a bit, but in the meantime…
What we really liked was the fact that HP had gotten the venue hosts, Bar Stories, to mix up a cocktail inspired by the Ultrabook range of notebooks! (Ok, I can’t drink, but every other journos there seemed to be loving it)
Here’s the recipe, given to us by Bar Stories’ helpful bartender, David, for you to try 🙂 It’s slightly tweaked from the recipe we got in the press kit.
1.5 oz of Gin
1 oz Kyoho grape liquer (this is from the Suntory brand)
9 grapes (the dark skinned type)
0.75 oz lemon juice
0.75 oz sugar syrup
1. Muddle grapes in a silver tin (that means mash them up)
2. Add in the rest of the ingredients and half a cup of crushed ice, stirring gently with a scooping motion.
3. Top up the mixture with soda water
4. Garnish with sliced grapes
