Summer evenings are best spent with a cocktail in hand, if you ask us.
And with a full weekend of uninterrupted sun and 30-degree heat on the cards, what better time than now to try out some new recipes?
We asked three mixologists for some lesser-known summer cocktail recipes, for when G&Ts or pornstar martinis just aren’t cutting it.
Shakers at the ready, folks.
Three summer cocktails to try this weekend:
Coco Loco cocktail
Will Rogers, head of beverage at Kricket, uses cardamom to add a little bit of warmth to this coconut-heavy cocktail.
- 5 cardamom pods
- 50ml coconut rum
- 25ml coconut water
- 15ml lime juice
- 15ml Sugar Syrup (a standard 1:1 – water : sugar ratio)
- 1 mint leaf, to garnish
The perfect aperitif (AKA, pre-dinner cocktail), the Smaquiri – created by Matt Ottley, the head bartender at Luca – mixes sweet and bitter ingredients to find the perfect balance.
- 40ml Mezcal
- 10ml Pineapple juice
- 20ml Lime juice
- 5ml Sugar syrup
- 15ml Campari
This fruity martini by Scott McGlynn is the perfect post-dinner cocktail.
- 2 parts vodka
- 2 parts pineapple juice
- 1 part raspberry liquor
