This is our first attempt at a completely original cocktail you can tell because the name is not very creative. A good friend of ours involved in the cocktail scene mentioned that the use of yogurt in cocktails is becoming trendier so we thought we would have a crack at it. The only spirit in the drink is ouzo which is Greece’s most popular liqueur.
1.25 oz oozo
1.25 oz fresh lemon juice
1 oz honey syrup (simple syrup with honey instead of sugar)
1 tsp greek yogurt
3 oz soda water
Pour all ingredients except soda water into a shaker with 5 ice cubes. Shake thouroughly for 30 seconds. Pour into a medium size glass and top up with soda water. The yogurt gives the cocktail and nice creamy texture and the addition of fat acts much like an egg in a shaken cocktail. Don’t use a plastic straw and enjoy.
