It’s time for a tipple at Platinum Al’s Virtual Hot Tub. This one’s an old classic – I’m sure you’ve tried it, if not – enjoy!
- 1 measure ruby port
- Blue WKD
Really simple to make: pour one measure of port into a large tumbler. Top up with WKD of the blue variety.
You will create a drink that looks, smells and tastes just like a fizzy Vimto – but with a hidden punch.
Play around with the amount of WKD you add – but the colour should be a dark purple, not translucent at all.
It’s been a long while since I was introduced to the Cheeky Vimto, and it became a favourite for a while. It was the Vodka/Redbull of it’s day. I have fond memories of introducing this drink to several weary travellers when we got home from Amsterdam on Baz Coppack’s stag do.
Well worth re-discovering.
By the way, I say “W-K-D” (the initials) not “Wicked”. I hate the word “wicked” when used in that way. You do not sound cool if you say, “Hey, that’s wicked!”. You sound like a pretend cockney who thinks they’re a “geezer”.
Say “rad” or “killer” instead and avoid looking like a chimp.
