One of the things we miss most about a night at the theatre is mingling in the foyer with a drink before showtime. So we’ve decided to put together a list of cocktails for each character in our upcoming digital performance of Uniform. So you can enjoy the theatre experience from the comfort of your own home.
“I’ve said my prayers, I deserve this.”Ms Evans
Combine vodka and dry vermouth in a cocktail mixing glass. Fill with ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with three olives on a toothpick.
Long Island Iced Tea
“Go big or go home!”Sadie
Pour the vodka, gin, tequila, rum and triple sec into a large (1.5l) jug, and add lime juice to taste. Half fill the jug with ice, then stir until the outside feels cold.
Add the cola then stir to combine. Drop in the lime wedges.
Fill 4 tall glasses with more ice cubes and pour in the iced tea.
“I need to watch my calorie intake high!”Meabh
30mL Four Pillars Navy Strength Gin
15mL fresh lime juice
2 dashes bitters (optional)
Ginger beer (or ale)
Add ingredients to a tall glass
Top with ginger
Garnish with lime wedge and mint sprig
“I feel like Carrie Bradshaw!”Geraldine
45ml lemon vodka
15ml triple sec
30ml cranberry juice
10ml lime juice
orange zest, or a lime wedge on the rim of the glass.
Shake ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
To make the garnish: hold a 3cm round piece of orange zest about 10cm above your cosmo and very carefully wave it over a lit match or lighter flame. Bend the outer edge of the zest in towards the flame so that the orange oils are released, then drop the zest into your drink.
“Cheap and easy.”Kate
STEP 1 (& Only)
Put a handful of ice cubes into a tall glass and pour over the vodka, followed by orange juice.
“This is one of my five a day, right?”Heather
Blend the strawberries then push the resulting puree through a sieve to remove some of the seeds. Tip the sieved puree into the blender again and add the ice, rum and lime juice. Blend again and divide the mixture between 2 Martini glasses.
Thread the lime slices and strawberry halves onto the cocktail sticks and place onto the edge of the glass, serve immediately.
Sex on the Beach
“Maybe I’ll get lucky?”Ciara
Fill two tall glasses with ice cubes. Pour the vodka, peach schnapps and fruit juices into a large jug and stir.
Divide the mixture between the two glasses and stir gently to combine. Garnish with the cocktail cherries and orange slices.
“It’s the successful people drink.”Eve
50ml bourbon or rye whiskey
25ml rosso vermouth
5ml syrup from a jar of maraschino cherries
2 dashes Angostura bitters
a twist of pared lemon
Stir the ingredients with ice in a mixing glass, then strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish and serve.
A Cuppa Tea
“I don’t drink.”Amber
