Cheeky Vimto Cocktail Recipe

You may have to reach deep and connect with your inner child to enjoy this one. As the name suggests, it tastes a bit like the soft drink after which it was named, but Vimto isn’t one of the ingredients in this sweet and syrupy cocktail.

The soft drink was invented over a hundred years ago as a health tonic, is a strange concoction of herbs, spices, grape juice and blackcurrant. The cocktail strives to imitate the flavor, and you’ll have to see for yourself whether it succeeds.

The Cheeky Vimto is wildly popular among the younger set in Britain but has yet to make much of a mark across the pond. For the Extra Cheeky Vimto, add a shot of vodka before combining the other ingredients.

Here’s what you need:

Ingredients

  • 50ml Ruby Port
  • 1 bottle of WKD Blue
  • 30ml Vodka (optional)
  • Lime Garnish

Preparation

  1. Fill a cocktail glass with ice.
  2. Add the Port.
  3. Top off with the WKD Blue.
  4. Stir.
  5. Garnish with a wedge of lime.
