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.
Combine 2/3 cup of martini and 2/5 cup gin in a suitable glass, then pour in 2/5 cup of coconut milk. To finish it off, drop in a few ice cubes and enjoy.
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.
