What screams SUMMER more than a sweet Pina Colada? Made with rum, coconut and pineapple, this cocktail teams well with our vintage Hawaii short jumpsuit.
120ml pineapple juice
60 ml white rum
60 ml coconut cream
Pineapple to garnish (optional)
Insert all ingredients along with a couple of ice cubes either in a blender or shaker and mix until it appears smooth. Pour into a glass of your choice and garnish with wedges of pineapples.
Fancy something easy peasy? Well, how about a Gin & Tonic? Main ingredients you ask? Well… Gin & Tonic will do, but you can spice it up the way we do.
50ml gin (optional: flavoured gin)
Lime, Cucumbers or Strawberries (optional)
Pour the gin over a couple of ice cubes and top up with tonic water. Garnish the drink with either cucumbers, lime, strawberries or anything else you'd think would taste good! Optional, you can use flavoured gin, to spice this classic up.
Next on our list is classic Sangria. One of the most popular drinks in Spain and Portugal, all you need for this gem is some red wine, orange juice, brown sugar and a mix of fresh fruit. Easy, right?
90ml orange juice
40ml brandy (optional for more taste)
375ml red wine (preferably Spanish)
20g brown sugar
For a jug of Sangria, add sliced apples, sliced oranges and the brown sugar into a large pitcher and muddle everything with a wooden spoon. Add orange juice and brandy (optional) and repeat muddling. Following this step, add the red wine and ice cubes and start stirring to cool down the cocktail. Last but not least, garnish with some orange wedges and it your drink is ready to be served.
Can you tell we love tropical weather? No? Even if we add the Honolulu to our list? It does not only go well with our Honolulu Short Jumpsuit but is the perfect refreshment due to the delicious mix of Gin, orange, pineapple juice and a squeeze of fresh lime.
15ml pineapple juice
15ml orange juice
5ml lemon juice
5ml sugar syrup
Dash of angostura bitters
Lemon spiral (optional)
Pour all ingredients into a chilled cocktails shaker filled with ice cubes. Shake, shake, shake and pour into glasses. Optional: garnish with a lemon spiral and rim the cocktails glasses with sugar.
This vibrant orange liqueur made of gentian, rhubarb and cinchona is the perfect mix for those who like fruity cocktails with a hint of bitterness. Refreshing and wonderfully light.
For two glasses of Aperol Spritz, add 50ml of Aperol to each glass, divide the Prosecco between the glasses, add a couple of ice cubes and top up with soda, if you’d like to.
Not a fan of sweet cocktails? With a rich tequila base, the Paloma is mixed with lime juice and grapefruit-flavoured soda.
30ml grapefruit juice (pink)
15ml lime juice
7.5ml agave syrup
Pink grapefruit soda
Fresh grapefruit (optional)
Pour the tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice and agave syrup into a chilled shaker with a couple of ice cubes. After shaking, fill some of it in a glass and top up with pink grapefruit soda. If you wish, you can garnish your cocktail with some grapefruit wedges.
