Refreshing tequila cocktails

Cocktails with agave spirits also called mezcal and tequila cocktails. These cocktails have one thing in common if you ask me – they love to be paired with fruit.

Tequila cocktails with fruit you say ? Yes I have provided four delicious cocktails below, using agave spirits and fruit, these cocktails is full of summer vibes and perfect to enjoy anytime on a sunny day, or when you’re in the mood for a delicious and refreshing cocktail with tequila (agave) that is fresh, fruity and full of summer vibes.

Try them out – you won’t regret it !

If you haven’t tried mezcal before, it can be a little overwhelming spirit. The smoked agave taste is distinctive, and because of that I like to pair mezcal and tequila when I use mezcal in my cocktails, to get the best of both spirits, and because I think it gives the best balance most of the time.

Cheers & Enjoy!

Bramble cocktail – recipes you must try

The Bramble cocktail

This cocktail is a real crowd pleaser, and a delicious cocktail you can’t go wrong with.

Bramble is a IBA official cocktail, under the category “new era drinks” created by Dick Bradsell in London, in 1984. The name of the cocktail designated from blackberry bushes called brambles, and the original recipe calls for using creme de mure – a blackberry liqueur.

You can use any type of red berry liqueur, instead of creme de mure, to make your own twists, depending on what you prefer. Whether it’s currant, casis, raspberry, strawberry or any other type of liqueur, I’m pretty sure you will end up with a cocktail you’ll find delicious.

I have made some new takes on a bramble which I hope you like, and hopefully make for yourself.
