After several years of spritz dominance, what are the trends of your aperitifs this summer? Here are 4 trends and consequently 4 cocktails to look so sleek this summer.
0% alcohol, ready to drink, CBD and sake, these are the main trends for organizing cold and trendy aperitifs in your garden. And because it’s better to say it: drink alcohol in moderation and do not drive after you have drunk.
1. Growing mocktails
So be careful, I’m not talking about fruit cocktails. I’m talking about non-alcoholic cocktails. After non-alcoholic beers, spirits are invented without alcohol. And an alcohol that has experienced a resurgence of noise recently combined more and more with zero percent: GIN. Brands like Seedlip or Nona June let you consider fresh Gin Tonics for the upcoming hot summer and combine this exclusive snack with discreet driving in the evening.
For the recipe, you get a classic gin-tonic recipe, and you prefer the non-alcoholic bottle when pouring the gin.
2. Ready to drink
There we say “thank you Covid”. Industrial alcohol producers took advantage of closures and closures of public places during the Covid crisis to develop canned cocktails. Margarita, Vodka Fizz, Moscow Mule, Mojito, Vodka Limon, Whiskey Ginger can thus find a place in your fridge and be naked, very cold, without going through the hands of a mycologist.
you, no recipe to offer you, but because we do not want to disturb the spritz that has reigned supreme for several years, we encourage you to try the bitterness of this Italian classic. Additionally … there is an alcohol-free version of the spritz in a can. Life is done well. Jo?
3. CBD cocktails
This is enough to fade your mother … “What, my child ??? You take drugs and drink alcohol at the same time”.
Of course, you will let her convince you that CBD, despite the cannabis leaves on the label, is not psychotropic. And that until proven otherwise, MPs have not authorized the free sale of cannabis and consequently that these showcase stores are not illegal. You will go and buy your little bottle of ORGANIC CBD oil (cannabidiol) with your mother. She will be able to ask all the questions to experienced sellers.
For the recipe we suggest Gin Lavender CBD cocktail
- Bring to the boil 250 ml of water and 200 g of sugar
- Add 2 tablespoons of dried kitchen lavender
- Simmer for 5 minutes on the fire and then leave for 10 minutes off the heat.
- Filter and keep the mixture cool.
- In a shaker, mix ice, 120 ml gin, 2 sprigs rosemary, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 4 tablespoons lavender juice, 2 teaspoons CBD oil.
- Serve in cold cocktail glasses.
4. Raising Sake
Dissatisfied with being the supplier of a WTF beauty product to the Japanese, Japanese manufacturers are invading France. Sake is the new Jinn, you could say. This rice alcohol is illustrated between 13 and 16%. Drink sake as it is, why not, but more towards cocktails we invite you to (re) discover this Japanese classic.
Allow yourself to be tempted by Caïpisaké (a derivative of Caipirinha for those who had not followed it):
- In a shaker, mix ice cubes and 90 ml sake. Add the lemon juice. Add half the lime cut into cubes. And finish with a train of 30 ml of syrup.
- Since you have a well-equipped shaker in your hands, shake vigorously.
- Pour everything into cocktail glasses. And enjoy.
And finally, because you can never be too careful:
ALCOHOL ABUSE IS DANGEROUS FOR HEALTHTO BE CONSUMED IN MODERATION
