It's The Season For Spring Cocktails

Posted on March 17, 2021

 

Toast the arrival of spring with one of these delicious gin cocktails, expertly created by our Head of Mixology, Oliver Morris. Fresh, floral and fruity, these refreshing serves are the perfect way to welcome in the new season.

 

Cotswolds Gin Sour

A variation on the classic. Silky smooth, with fresh citrus to balance the complexity of the gin.

INGREDIENTS
50ml Cotswolds Dry Gin
25ml lime juice
12.5ml sugar syrup
½ egg white (optional)
2 dashes of aromatic bitters (such as Angostura)
    HOW TO CREATE

    Place all ingredients into an ice-filled shaker, shake and serve over ice in an Old Fashioned glass.

    EMBELLISH
    Mint & lime wedge.

     

    Cotswolds Blossom

    An aromatic cocktail, delicate and dry. The tartness of the grapefruit enhances the citrus elements of the gin, finishing with a floral note.

    INGREDIENTS
    15ml elderflower liqueur
    15ml Lillet Blanc
    25ml grapefruit juice
    5ml rose water
      HOW TO CREATE

      Shake all ingredients over ice, fine strain & serve into a chilled martini glass.

      EMBELLISH
      Edible blossom.

       

       

      G, Tea & T

      A light and refreshing tea-based cocktail. Deliciously floral with a sweet finish. We made our own tea from linden leaves, but any light fruit tea would work here.

      INGREDIENTS
      50ml Cotswolds Dry Gin
      25ml elderflower liqueur
      30ml cold linden blossom tea (or a fruit tea)
      12ml lime juice
      8ml sugar syrup
      Indian tonic water
        HOW TO CREATE

        Place first 5 ingredients into an ice-filled shaker, shake and strain over ice in a highball glass, top up with tonic & serve.

        EMBELLISH
        Viola flower.

         

        Franchino's Negroni

        Named after our head distiller, Nickolas Franchino. This namesake cocktail is bittersweet, full of Italian spirit, and rather refreshing.

        INGREDIENTS
        25ml Cotswolds Dry Gin
        25ml Campari
        25ml grapefruit juice
        8ml sugar syrup
