19.02, Music programmed by NTS radio
DJ Set from Bone Soda in Tate Modern’s Tanks
- Just as the gallery reopens, NTS Radio programmed a unique set with Bone Soda in Tate Modern’s iconic Tanks.
- Dib Dab or sherbet and a lollipop of your choice
- Vodka (1 part)
- Chambord (1 part)
- Sugar syrup (1 part)
- Lime juice (dash)
- Egg white (dash)
- Cranberry juice (2 parts)
- Fresh lime
To make as a mocktail, just swap the vodka and Chambord for raspberry juice, syrup or jam.
Best served in a coupe but any short glass will do!
- Chill the glass by placing a few ice cubes inside it and top it up with cold water
- Pour out a quarter of the Dib Dab onto a plate
- Add the vodka, Chambord, sugar syrup, lime juice, cranberry juice, remaining Dib Dab and egg white to a cocktail shaker and shake well over ice. When the outside of the shaker has frosted up, it’s a good indication your martini is ready.
- If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, try using a mason jar instead
- While shaking your cocktail, keep a firm grip on both parts of the shaker, the egg white adds a lovely creamy texture and finish to the cocktail but can tend to make it go ‘pop’ while mixing it up with the sherbet.
- Pour the ice and water out of the chilled glass
- Wet the rim of the glass with a fresh lime and gently roll the Dib Dab from the plate evenly across the rim of the glass.
- Strain out the cocktail into the glass using a Hawthorne strainer or a sieve.
- Serve your sherbet martini with the lollipop to garnish.
