COCKTAILS

Easy-to-make cocktails are just a click away! Are you a gin person? Perhaps a rum aficionado? Is sparkling wine your thing?

We have it all covered: You start off by selecting your preferred base – vodka, gin, rum, bubbles – and we’ll make a few suggestions based on your choice and put them into cocktail kits.

Then click on your selected kit and we’ll dispatch it, to your desired destination. Within these pages you’ll find some tasty examples from our range. We don’t include the fresh ingredients – the mint leaves, the fruit, etc. – because they need, of course, to be fresh.


French 75 COCKTAIL RECEIPE

French 75 is a cocktail made from Gin, Champagne, lemon juice, and sugar. The drink was created in 1915 at the Paris landmark, Harry's New York Bar by barman Harry MacElhone. The combination was said to have such a kick that it felt like being shelled with the powerful French 75mm field gun, also called a "75 Cocktail", or "Soixante Quinze" in French. The French 75 was popularized in America at the Stork Club.
The drink's recipe was first recorded in 'The Savoy Cocktail Book' in 1930. The recipe in the Savoy Cocktail Book uses Gin. A later cocktail book, 'The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks' by David Embury, claims that the French 75 is a Cognac-based drink.

SHAKE AND STRAIN

Using a Hawthorn strainer (or knife) this technique prevents the ice going into the glass. Straining protects the cocktail ensuring melted ice wont dilute the flavour and mixture.
