If you are anything like us, crafting up easy (and delicious!) cocktails at home right now is one of life’s simple joys. And major bonus when they involve things you already have at home! Even if you don’t have these ingredients hopefully they are some inpso for a new cocktail this weekend – or next week! If you aren’t a cocktail fan, and you haven’t tried Spindrift, they are great for a fun mix it up during the day as well. My favorite flavors are grapefruit and orange mango – yum!
Snakeoil Cocktail Co. was kind enough to share one of their recipes with us and then we crafted up a few other recipes ourselves! Cheers!
Alter-ed State Cocktail
Big thanks to Snakeoil Cocktail Co. for sharing this delicious cocktail recipes with us! They created this cocktail for the recent Modern Love San Diego event this past February and we are excited to share with you guys today! Perfect to try making at home while we are all spending time at home.
- 1.5 oz. London Dry gin
- 2 oz. fresh grapefruit juice
- 3 tsp. fresh lemon juice
- 4 tsp. vanilla-thyme simple syrup
- 1.5 tbsp. homemade blackberry jam
- Spindrift grapefruit
Add all ingredients (except the blackberry jam & Spindrift) to a cocktail shaker. Shake with ice and strain over fresh ice in a double old-fashioned glass. Splash Spindrift grapefruit soda and add a dollop of blackberry jam, do not stir in. Garnish with a thyme sprig!
Sparkling Orange Mango Margarita
Always a fan of a tequila drink and this is a fun way to mix it up a bit!
Add the tequila, Cointreau and the juice of 2 limes to a cocktail shaker. Fill the shaker with ice and shake, shake, shake! Add fresh ice to your glass and strain the margarita into your glass. Top with 2-3 oz. of Spindrift Orange Mango.
Blackberry Gin Fizz Cocktail
- 1/2 lemon – cut into 4 wedges and juiced
- 3 oz. gin (we love Aviation Gin if you are looking for a gin to try!)
- 1 tsp Simple Syrup
- Fresh blackberries (or blueberries) – this is to top the cocktail
- 1 can Spindrift Blackberry
Add gin, simple strup and lemon juice to a shaker. Shake it up! Fill a glass with ice and strain the cocktail in the glass. Top with Spindrift Blackberry and then garnish with some fresh blackberries or blueberries. Enjoy!
Sparkling Buzzy Arnold Palmer Cocktail
Fill glass with ice. Add the vodka and fresh lemon juice to the glass and stir. Top with Spindrift Half Tea & Half Lemon and then garnish with some fresh mint leaves. Cheers!
Looking for some new cocktail glasses? I am a big fan of making cocktails in pretty glasses – makes them that much better and since we are going to be hanging out at home a lot more right now, this is a great time to invest in some new glasses 🙂
