5 quick cocktails for a holiday feeling at home


The long weekend has been knocking, the sun is shining in the blue sky. Perfect to simply bring home that holiday feeling with a few delicious, light cocktails. Feet up and sipped off.

Robinson Crusoe: Lonely island, please

4cl rum (white)
4cl pineapple juice
Ice cubes

That's how it's done:
Shake the rum and pineapple juice vigorously with a few ice cubes in a shaker. Then serve in a tumbler or a small tall glass and think of a desert island in the middle of the azure ocean!




Paradise apple: Paradise is calling

2 cl vodka
200ml grapefruit juice
mint
1 cl Lillet rosé or blanc

That's how it's done:
Wash mint and pluck into small pieces, put in a glass with ice cubes. Add vodka, grapefruit juice, and finally Lillet. If you like it sweeter add some cane sugar. This is how paradise could taste. Delicious!




Light breeze: off to the sea

100ml freshly squeezed orange juice
200ml white wine
mint

That's how it's done:
Easy peasy delicious, light summer drink: Simply squeeze a few oranges and pour the juice into ice-cold white wine. Add a sprig of mint - done! Tastes of sun, beach and sea.

 


Basilpolitan: big city flair

150ml cranberry juice
150ml mineral water
2cl vodka
basil

That's how it's done:
We love basil! And this drink looks particularly nice when you first crush the basil with the ice cubes and put it in the glass. Then the vodka, mineral water, and finally the cranberry juice. Quickly done and really makes a difference. 




Blond angel: relaxation on balconies

8 cl eggnog
10-20 cl orange juice or bitter orange (e.g. from Schweppes)
Ice cubes (also delicious with vanilla ice cream)

That's how it's done:
Fill a long drink glass about a third with crushed ice and add the eggnog. Stir briefly, then top up with orange juice or bitter orange, depending on your taste. Stir again before serving. If you prefer it without alcohol, simply take a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top instead of eggnog
