Spring Cocktail Recipes to Toast in the New Season
Spring is all about shedding those winter blues and hitting refresh on a new year. From fruity favourites to spring sweetness, we’ve got all the best spring cocktails you could possibly need to make your rule of 6 get-together a treat.
Lavender Gin & Tonic
Fill a gin glass with ice approximately 1oz of lavender-infused gin and top your glass up with tonic water. Add a sprig of lavender to really embrace all that floral goodness and you’re good to sip and go. You’ll adore this floral fusion!
Margaritas are always a good idea, let’s be honest. This fun spring cocktail is a well known classic and perfect for your outdoor get-together. First, chill a cocktail glass, rub its rim with lime juice and dip in salt (super fancy, we know).
Then, combine 2oz of tequila with 1oz of cointreau, 1oz of lime juice and ice and shake together in a cocktail shaker. Pour and enjoy.
Mojitos are super refreshing, extra minty and absolutely delicious. To make this gorgeous spring cocktail, simply combine the juice of 1 lime with 1tsp of granulated sugar and a small handful of mint leaves in a jug. Don’t forget to crush the mint as you go - this brings out all the flavour!
Then, pour the mixture into a tall glass and add a handful of ice. Pour over 60ml of white rum and top with soda water. Garnish with mint and voila!
Fancy a Virgin Mojito instead? Swap out the white rum for some soda water.
You can’t really go wrong with a Strawberry Martini, let’s be honest. This fun spring cocktail is bursting with strawberry goodness and always goes down a treat. Also, you only need two ingredients - bonus!
Combine 1oz of strawberry liqueur with 1oz of vodka. Add the juice of 1 lemon and soda water (or lemonade if you fancy something sweeter) and stir. Top with ice and enjoy.
Pimms is an all time spring/summer classic so of course we had to add this beauty to the list!
In a tall glass, combine 2oz of Pimms, a few slices of cucumber, strawberry, lemon and a few mint leaves and top with sparkling lemonade.
Or, why not go for a pitcher? Double or triple up the ingredients for a jug of Pimms to share. We won’t judge you if you just want to pop a straw in and enjoy it all to yourself, though! This is what those sunnier days are all about.
If the name wasn’t enough to get your taste buds excited, the Tequila Sunrise has the perfect balance of orange juice, grenadine and tequila that makes this spring drink truly golden.
Fill a tall glass with ice. Add 4oz of orange juice, 2oz of tequila and ½ oz of grenadine. Give this fruity concoction a stir and garnish with an orange slice or a tiny cherry.
Let’s be honest, it’s not spring without a Cosmopolitan.
This classic spring cocktail has a fruity twist and has all the boujee Sex and The City vibes we all know and love. Combine 4oz of vodka with 2oz of orange liqueur and 2oz of cranberry juice. Add the juice of a lime, shake away in a cocktail shaker and strain into two martini glasses.
