Cocktail review - Helm special
Helm special from The Helm, $14
Apparently, Cointreau has set a national challenge to bars that stock the fruity liqueur to make the best cocktail. The Helm has stepped up to the challenge and say its drink is all but ready, it just needs a bit of feedback. Well, here's some very public feedback: I like it. Disclaimer: I do like Cointreau and vodka - in this case, 42 Below's Wild Tea vodka. The two stars are matched with sugar syrup, fresh lime and three passionfruit ice cubes. Can get a bit sweet at the bottom as the cubes melt, but you can't knock Helm's bartenders for the ingenuity.
