Cocktail expert Charlie Homberger of Create Cocktails has taken inspiration from our Complete Bliss and Refresh scents to create two exclusive Neom cocktails for you to try:
Kate Moss says “these guys know how to throw a party” whilst InStyle says “their cocktails complemented the event perfectly”.
So we asked Create Cocktails Co-director Charlie Homberger to give us two of the best dinner party cocktails with a Neom twist. The first is based on our Complete Bliss scent and includes rose, lime and black pepper and the second is based on our Refresh scent including lemon and basil.
MOROCCAN PINEAPPLE MARTINI
Muddled chunks of pineapple shaken with rose water, honey, golden rum and served with a light dusting of cracked black pepper.
- 3 medium chunks pineapple (no skin)
- 15ml runny honey
- 10ml rose water
- 35ml golden rum
- 25ml pineapple juice
- 1 squeeze of half a lime
Muddle the chunks of pineapple in a cocktail shaker and add all the other ingredients. Shake hard with cubed ice and strain into a large, chilled martini glass. Garnish with a light dusting of cracked black pepper.
SICILIAN GINGER REFRESHER
Fresh wedges of lemon with sweet basil, vodka and ginger beer.
- 2 wedges lemon
- 4 large leaves of sweet basil
- 35ml vodka
- 120ml ginger beer
Squeeze the lemon into a hiball glass and drop inside, add the basil and gently crush with a long spoon/muddler. Fill the glass with cubed ice and add the vodka and ginger beer then lightly stir. Garnish with a zest of lemon and basil leaf.
