DIY Cocktail Ideas for SpringMost of us crave heavy, sweet, hot beverages in winter, but the place of these warming drinks is gradually taken by lighter, fresher flavors. If you already feel the desire for cocktails that use fresh herbs and fruits, here are a few recipes for quick and easy springtime drinks:
- Rosemary lemonade – a splash of tequila, some lemon juice, sugar, mineral water and ice cubes made from water to which you add some powdered rosemary is all it takes to make this refreshing cocktail.
- Vodka martini with a few drops of lime juice – prepare a vodka martini with vodka and a few drops of dry vermouth, then add some lime juice and serve the drink in a sugared glass.
- Cocktails with home-made lilac syrup – prepare a simple syrup with sugar, water, a few cups of lilac blossoms and some citric acid and use it in your cocktails in combination with a few drops of vodka, lime juice and club soda.
- The taste of spring flowers – violet and elderflower liqueurs add a really refreshing flavor to drinks, so combine them with some gin and soda and enjoy the taste of blossoming spring. If you have a sweet tooth, you can add some more sugar or a few drops of your favorite liquid sweetener.
