Summer is in full swing and provides us with plenty of positive emotions, sun and cocktails - in other words, it's time for a vacation. During this period, light beer makes good company - perhaps it's the type of alcohol that first comes to mind when we say summer.
Gin should also not be ignored - in combination with other drinks, gin creates many wonderful and fresh cocktails, which also make for good company during the summer.
Let us offer you a few cocktails with this alcoholic drink but don't forget to drink responsibly to get the most out of it. And here are the cocktails:
The first one ends up quite sweet, since it contains strawberry juice. For 1 glass you will need 4/5 cup strawberry juice and 3 1/3 tbsp gin.
Pour them into an appropriate glass and then add 2/5 cup of carbonated water. Serve the cocktail with plenty of ice and optionally, a few strawberries to decorate the glass.
Our next proposal is for the beloved gin fizz - for it you need 1/3 cup of gin and 3 1/3 tbsp lemon juice. Put them in a shaker and add 1 2/3 tbsp of sugar syrup to them - shake well and pour into a tall glass and top off with carbonated water. Optionally, you can decorate with a slice of lemon.
The next cocktail definitely lightens up the mood, which is why it's wise to be careful with the amount you intend to drink.
If you prefer more sour drinks, here is an easy combo. For it you need a tall glass, 1/3 cup gin, 2 1/3 tbsp lime juice and lots of ice. Put everything in the glass and drink up.
The last cocktail you can make with equal amounts of gin and mint - 1 2/3 tbsp each. Put the gin in a shaker with a few ice cubes and shake briefly - the goal is to cool the alcohol nicely.
Next, pour the gin into a glass and add some carbonated water (can use Sprite) - about 2/5 cup. Then add the mint and ice. Place a lemon slice on the rim of the glass - serve with a straw.
