Who doesn't enjoy a nice cocktail? Especially in these warmer afternoons we've been having lately. The sun and cocktails, a girls best friend.
Last week Echo Falls kindly sent me two bottles of wine from their Fruit Fusion range to try out. They suggested I try make a cocktail or two with them and I couldn't wait to start experimenting. I would of never of thought to use the wine in a cocktail as it is lovely on it's own but I couldn't wait to give it a go.
70ml Echo Falls Fruit Fusion White Peach & Mango
1 slice of lemon
1 slice of lime
1 slice of grapefruit
1 slice of orange
10ml elderflower cordial
5ml pomegranate syrup
Pomegranate seeds and a mint spring to garnish
Slice the citrus fruits into wedges and muddle in a hi-ball glass, add the Fruit Fusions White Peach & Mango, elderflower cordial and crushed ice then stir. Drizzle with pomegranate syrup. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and a mint spring.
Echoes of Pink
50ml Echo Falls Fruit Fusion Summer Berries
25ml raspberry purée
20ml lemon juice
5ml ginger cordial
5ml sugar syrup
20ml egg white
Edible pink glitter to garnish
Mix and shake together all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake again for 2 minutes. Strain cocktail into a chilled coupette glass and sprinkle with edible pink glitter to garnish.
I did sample Summer Serendipity and it was like sipping pure sunshine, I will be making that again! It was so refreshing and light, almost too easy to drink! I haven't tried Echoes of Pink just yet but as the recipe sounds divine I just had to share it.
What is your favourite tipple to enjoy in the sun?
