Apricot Cooler

Apricot CoolerThe Apricot Cooler is a gorgeous combination of fruity flavours for a truly refreshing cocktail. Made with De Kuyper Apricot Brandy, freshly squeezed lime juice, some sugar syrup, a couple of dashes of Angostura Bitters, a dash of De Kuyper Grenadine – this recipe is then topped up with soda water to make an invigorating long cocktail for you to enjoy.

Blue Sky

Blue SkyEven if we don’t see blue sky that often here in the UK – this is a fantastic way to brighten up your day whatever the weather. This is an unusual cocktail combination achieved by mixing De Kuyper Blue Curaçao with gin, lemon juice and a teaspoon of egg white. A beautiful blue cocktail is the end result with a tangy citrus flavour.

Fizzing Cherry

Fizzing CherryAnother thirst quenching long drink to try out for Spring is a Fizzing Cherry. This is a wonderful fusion of De Kuyper Cherry Brandy with freshly squeezed orange juice and lime juice. To balance out the tartness of the citrus fruits, a half shot of sugar (or gomme) syrup is added and then topped up with lemonade.

In The Springtime

In The Springtime If its minty fresh that you are looking for, then this is the cocktail recipe for you. In The Springtime is made from 2 shots of white rum, 1 shot of De Kuyper Crème de Menthe and topped up with ginger ale. To complement its cool flavours, you can garnish it with some seedless green grapes for a perfectly fresh look.

Perfect Day

Perfect Day To round up our selection of cocktail recipes with a spring fresh theme, why not make up a Perfect Day? This cocktail idea is a simple blend of vodka, De Kuyper Triple Sec and orange juice – sure to perk you up with its energising tangy taste.

Always remember: in-the-spirit recommends enjoying all cocktail recipes listed in moderation.
