Brockmans Gin, a super-premium, new-style gin, is welcoming the warm weather of summer with recipes perfect for a seasonal cocktail menu.
Each cocktail has been artfully crafted to highlight the unique botanicals of Brockmans Gin, while incorporating classic summer flavors like pink grapefruit and honey, to create refreshing drinks just in time for summer.
“Summer is the perfect season for gin. Brockmans Gin creates a base for quintessential, refreshing flavors that everyone seeks during the warm summer months. For customers who want to look outside of the obvious choices and try something new, the Sour Bee Fizz and Maratini are simple and swift to construct, yet look and taste sublime.”
– Bob Fowkes, co-founder of Brockmans Gin
The taste profile of Brockmans Gin balances perfectly with the citrus notes in the Sour Bee Fizz cocktail recipe. Fresh lemon and fresh lime juice, sweetened with a dash of honey syrup are the only flavors needed, all given a sublime consistency with the addition of egg white.
The Brockmans Maratini makes the most of marrying Brockmans gin with pink grapefruit juice with the sharpness of lemon and the depth of flavor provided by Maraschino liqueur. The twist of pink grapefruit peel gives a balance of sweetness and acidity that balances perfectly with some of the floral berry notes, the tanginess of coriander and the resinous notes of juniper within Brockmans.
