To celebrate World Cocktail Day on 13th May, mix up one of these cool cocktails using spirits produced at some of our favourite local distilleries. Come and sample more local spirits, beers, ciders and wines at our new Warner’s store in Upton-upon-Severn, opening on 26th May…
6 O’Clock Gin: The Bee’s Knees
A dainty little cocktail that pairs the smoothness of honey with tart lemon and the botanical complexity of 6 O’Clock Gin
Method: shake the gin, lemon and honey in a shaker, along with a handful of ice (you may find that a dash of hot water helps ‘loosen’ the honey). Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass – the fancier the better!
Garnish: a piece of lemon peel or some (edible) flowers from your garden.
Chase Distillery: Elderflower & Apple Collins
Enjoy Bank Holiday drinks with this long cocktail inspired by the flavours of local hedgerows
Method: roll two basil leaves together, slicing them into smaller pieces. Add sugar to a glass, along with Wildjac Botanical Gin, stirring well until dissolved. Add two cucumber slices and the sliced basil leaves, muddle 5-10 times. Add lime juice to taste and top with crushed ice and tonic water.
Garnish: with cucumber and a basil leaf.
Cotswold Distillery: Caipirotswold
Just the perfect refreshing drink on a sunny day, no fuss and bursting with fresh grapefruit zest
