Amoretti Spring Bouquet: New Drink Recipe!
This spring, we’ve been shaking things up with all kinds of experimental drink recipes for Amoretti Blog readers. No matter where you enjoy your verdure, make sure you enjoy it this season with the new Amoretti Spring Bouquet cocktail.
Somewhere between a shooter and a floral martini, the Amoretti Spring Bouquet brings together the best of both worlds. This drink features a rich floral scent and taste derived from gin, fresh mint, and our violet lavender syrup (a customer favorite). An ounce of our zesty lemon martini cocktail mix provides it with an electric base to light up your afternoon or evening!
Ready to try it out for yourself? Check out the recipe below. (Of course, we recommend using our lemon drop cocktail mix, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can use half of a fresh-squeezed lemon as a substitute.)
Amoretti Spring Bouquet
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Muddle one large mint sprig. Add ice, and shake vigorously. Strain into a small glass. Enjoy! Optional: Garnish with a fresh mint sprig.
Why You’ll Love This Recipe
If you really enjoy gin, then you’ll certainly appreciate this little shooter. This recipe doesn’t try to mask the gin. Rather, a dose of citrus and plenty of fresh herbal taste helps enhance the gin’s natural qualities. Gin-lovers, rejoice.
We’re also big fans of this drink recipe for one other reason: Amoretti Premium Violet Lavender Syrup. This hard to find floral syrup was a top-seller last summer because it’s incredibly unique but not off-the-wall-unique. You’ll find plenty of uses for this floral beverage syrup, from cocktails and iced tea to baking and a piping hot sunrise green tea.
Also, this basic, bare bones recipe is highly adaptable, which we always appreciate in a drink recipe. Have fun experimenting with different fresh herbs in the drink. Or change its form entirely and turn it into a punch or lemonade.
The only limit to this drink is your creativity. Our challenge for you: try this recipe and then try to change it. Let us know what you come up with by sharing your modifications with other Amoretti fans on the official Amoretti Facebook page. We’re always impressed, time and time again, by what our customers can create!
