Brighter days are ahead in more ways than one. And with all those upcoming picnics and garden events on the horizon, we’ve got an idea of how to help you make the most of them.
For the first social occasions after so long living with restrictions, you don’t want to mark the moment with the same old lager or glass of wine. We can do better than that. Let’s take things up a notch.
Cocktails are the way to go. Now, don’t panic if you don’t fancy yourself as being much of a mixologist. We’re not talking about complicated creations. What we’ve got in the mind is the simplest and most glorious of serves: The Highball.
The Highball is essentially a long drink which pairs your chosen spirit with a mixer. The G&T is probably the most classic example. The Cuba Libre, or rum and coke if you like to get straight to the point, is another. With our Premium Collections of both Gin and Rum, you get 12 drams of varying styles and profiles to mix and match so you can find the serve that’s right for you.
Equally, Irish whiskey is tremendous with both soda water and, our personal favourite, ginger ale. Our Collection features a number of different expressions that would go brilliantly with this pairing, like Roe & Co or Teeling Single Grain. Or, if you fancy bringing some Mexican sunshine to your drinks cabinet, the drams in the Tequila & Mezcal Collection are just begging to be paired with some soda water and lime.
Make this spring about long drinks that let the spirit shine. You know, just like the sun will... See what we did there? Never mind. Highballs are delicious.
