Plumdog Millionaire is a very innovative cocktail recipe that is an obvious reference to the hit movie “Slumdog Millionaire.” This unique cocktail recipe is an absolute must-try. In this London dry cocktail, a poppy and dragon’s eye twist is tempered by a dash of lavender to create a delicious cocktail. It’s sporadic to see plums in cocktails and even more uncommon for the combination to occur. Plum flavor comes from plum wine (a sweet-sour liqueur that’s also called umeshu). Plum wine rivals sake in popularity as a favorite beverage in Japanese society. With its bold flavors, it is the ideal accompaniment to a gin as complex as Bulldog, and the dry sparkling lavender soda is used lightly to accent the two flavors. The cocktail is too good to keep all to yourself, so grab some friends and share it. A great complement to virtually any meal that features Asian cuisine, it is sure to please.
