SUMMER COCKTAILS

Nothing says summertime with your favourite cocktail lazing by the pool.

We have put together some of our most lovely Summer Adult Cocktails. For Family Friendly Cocktails, check out our other post.

Cosmopolitan
The Cosmopolitan is a strong and fragrant drink, warm, with a good balance between sweetness and acidity that can fool you, so its high alcohol content shouldn’t be taken lightly. Suitable for any occasion, but especially as an aperitif.

Ingredients:
4 cl of vodka citron
1.5 of triple sec
1.5 cl fresh lemon juice
3 cl of cranberry juice (cranberry)

Squeeze the lemon and strain the juice. Pour all ingredients in a shaker, shake for 15 seconds, remove the ice from the glass and pour the Cosmo in a martini glass, straining.
Garnish with a slice of lime. That’s all- simple, but addictive!

Rossini
A little tip when you’re making Rossini: prepare it in advance and in capacious carafes, you’ll spare a lot of time the cocktails will be more balanced, especially if cooled with a single, large piece of ice.

Ingredients:
10 cl of sparkling wine or champagne
5 cl of strawberry puree
In order to make a good drink without adding any sugar syrup, strawberries must be fresh, ripe and sweet, ie: perfect. Get 4 or 5 strawberries and crush them in a sieve, muddling with a spoon.

Avoid the blender at all costs, which would kill the delicate flavour of strawberries: the blender is ok for frozen drinks like Margarita or Daiquiri, but not for sparkling cocktails that rely on intact and intense aromas and have only 2 ingredients. There is not even a drop of triple sec here…

The strawberry puree can be frozen in an ice cube tray used for emergencies or to add a touch of flavour to your ice cream.

Cool a glass or flute with ice, then toss away the ice, pour the filtered puree, add champagne or a good Spumante Metodo Classico, stir gently and garnish with a strawberry.

Enjoy your Rossini drink!

Screwdriver

The Screwdriver is one of the simplest cocktails in the entire history of the mixed drinks: squeeze an orange and fortify it with a little bit of vodka and you’re done. For a good, not too strong not too light cocktail they should be in a 1 (vodka) to 2(orange juice) ratio, so let’s say that adding 10 cl of orange juice to 5 cl of vodka it’s a nice way to make peace with the world. Keep this in mind during summer, when you’ll prepare bathtubs of Screwdriver to quench your thirst and make a full immersion of vitamin C.

One legend says that an American worker has given this name to a cocktail before known as vodka orange, because for stirring it he found nothing but a simple screwdriver.

Ingredients:
5 cl of vodka
10 cl of orange juice

Squeeze the oranges and strain the juice. Pour vodka and the juice in a highball glass filled with ice, mix and decorate with a slice of orange. Voila!
