Summer Cocktails

Following on from my recent Garden Party Accessories post, I've been searching for some cocktail recipes for our garden party. I want some recipes that are delicious but also not too difficult to make as we'll have a lot to do with all the party preparations.
Bottlegreen have lots of food and drink recipes on their website ( including some yummy cocktails. I'll be featuring a few cocktail recipes on my blog and here are the first two. I might just have to practise them this weekend!

Garden Of Eden Cocktail

This cocktail is perfect for a sunny afternoon, with zesty lime, zingy mint, aromatic gin and delicious elderflower cordial.


50ml Gordon's gin
10ml Bottlegreen Elderflower Cordial
10ml lime juice
6 torn mint leaves
60ml cloudy apple juice
Glass: highball


- Put all the ingredients with some ice into a cocktail shaker.
- Strain into an ice-filled highball glass
- Garnish with apple skin and a mint sprig (see picture above)

Polo Cartier Cocktail

The fizzing bubbles and sweet apple and plum deliver a fruity twist on a Champagne cocktail - wonderfully decadent!


25ml apple vodka
15ml Bottlegreen Cox Apple & Plum Cordial
Glass: flute


- Three quarter fill a flute with Champagne
- Shake the first two ingredients with ice
- Strain into the Champagne

Look out for more recipes soon!
