Easy Spring Cocktail Ideas

gamme liqueurs

It’s Spring time, the sun is out (well kind of) and it’s definitely the start of better times to come. As we leave the dark and miserable winter weather behind us, we can start to emerge from our hibernation and begin spending more time outside.

When the sun’s out, there’s only one thing that springs to mind.. a BBQ! So if you haven’t whipped out the barbie already, I’m sure you’re checking your diary as we speak. With BBQ’s in mind, it’s time to turn your attentions away from the heavy reds and go for something that’s a bit lighter, fresher and crispier to drink. What else could be more fitting than a couple of cocktails?

So get your shakers at the ready, your cocktail making lessons start right here:

2-3 drops of pimento extract (or Tabasco)
15 ml of fresh lime juice
1/2 a bar spoon of white sugar
Pulp of 1/2 a passion fruit

GREEN NIGHTS
Cocktail making made easy!

Ingredients

35ml of Greenhook Ginsmiths American Dry Gin
20ml of Joseph Cartron Elderflower Liqueur
15ml of fresh lemon juice
2 slices of cucumber
3 basil leaves
1/2 a bar spoon of white sugar

Again shake all the ingredients together.. but be careful with this one, we don’t want to crush the ingredients. Once shaken filter into a rock glass with ice and garnish with a basil leaf and a couple of slices of cucumber.

Served with or without food, this cocktail is a great all-rounder, helping with that transition from Winter to Spring to Summer.

Oh yes please!

Ingredients 

30 ml of Château du Breuil Calvados VSOP
20 ml of  Joseph Cartron N°7 Liqueur
20 ml of fresh lemon juice
20 ml of Teisseire Gomme Syrup
1 egg white

First of all don’t be alarmed by the egg, you don’t need to be a bartender to use them in a cocktail. So with this one, the same as the ones above, pour all the ingredients into a shaker. Shake then filter twice before pouring into a chilled cocktail glass. This is where your artistic skills come in, garnish it with a fan of green apples.
