Spring is upon us and we advise you to toast the arrival of the beautiful season, sunny days and evenings outdoors. With the increase in temperatures, the desire to drink something fruity, lively or thirst-quenching also grows. For this reason, here are some sparkling recipes for preparing unique cocktails to offer to your customers during the summer.
The fruity and floral
Spring is the season of rebirth, the period in which flowers bloom on the plants, making the atmosphere romantic. And how not to celebrate the mild climate and the first days of warm sun with a drink with floral and fruity notes. From the sourest to the most sugary flavours, the floral and fruity notes offer an immense variety of combinations for the creation of fresh and intense cocktails.
If you are of the idea that spring is the season of love, then Il Passionale is for you. A long drink based on ginger beer, fiery red Campari, scented notes of Bankes gin and finally the unique taste of raspberries and lemon. A fresh and lively preparation perfect to describe the cheerful spirit of spring.
The Toledo Cobbler is instead a very elegant cocktail with a bolder taste. The ingredients: Martini Rosso, orange and lemon juice, white sugar and a tear of Angostura, the amaro obtained from the infusion of cloves, gentian, cardamom and oranges. Designed to accompany the first warm evenings of the summer.
Not only fruit, but also vegetables to prepare unique and fresh cocktails. The Bugsy Mary, for example, was born from the idea of combining the intense Bloody Mary with the delicate taste of carrot cake. The cocktail is obtained with Gray Goose Vodka, carrot juice, Extra Dry Martini, lemon juice, sugar syrup, salt, pepper and a dash of celery bitters. A unique taste to be savored both at aperitif time and for a sophisticated evening.
To offer your customers the reinterpretation of a classic drink in a spring key. Such as Il Savonese , whose recipe is inspired by the Americano. Unlike the traditional cocktail, Il Savonese has a characteristic citrus taste given by the addition of Ligurian chinotto. Ideal for a refreshing aperitif, with a long and slightly smoky taste.
Black cherries are instead the protagonists of the alternative proposal of Il Diplomat . Instead of Angostura, another amaro: the Black Note. A strong but sweet liqueur, enhanced by citrus and spicy notes. The classic maraschino is also replaced and in its place the Andorno Ratafià with cherries takes the field. Instead, the vermouths of the traditional recipe remain unchanged. A cocktail with an enveloping, fruity and captivating flavour.
For the more delicate palates we propose the Bella Rosa , the ice cream version of the Cosmopolitan. A delicious and refined proposal with Bordiga Rosa gin, white vermouth and a scoop of raspberry and lime ice cream. Ideal for refreshing hot summer nights or as a fresh alcoholic aperitif.
These are some ideas for preparing cocktails in view of the summer. A menu that varies according to the climate and the occasion is an excellent way to diversify the offer in a creative way and consistent with the tastes of the moment. Furthermore, with our Ice n Roll you can make these cocktail recipes in the form of ice cream, to amaze your customers with the originality of Ice n Roll.
