This cocktail from The Jefferson is so visually appealing and they serve it in a special copper coup glass so it is both beautiful and delicious.

The cocktails at the Jefferson are named after iconic stars like Sinatra, Newman, Bogart etc.

This one is a mix of sweet and sour and is called the The Presley and could easily also be served as a desert.


  • 2 tsp lemon curd
  • 45 ml Vodka
  • 30 ml lemon
  • 20 ml sugar syrup
  • 15 ml frangelico


  1. Add all the ingredients to a shaker with ice and then strain into a coup shaped glass or a martini glass & top with meringue, yup, meringue.
  2. It is pretty easy to make just whisk egg white and sugar in a bowl & place on top of the cocktail. 
  3. Add a sprinkling of cinnamon if you wish.
  4. If you don’t want to make it yourself head on down to the Jefferson off Fort Lane to enjoy.
