So, I’m sure that I’m not the only one who has gotten a bit more adventurous in the kitchen during lockdown. Instagram is full of everyone attempting sourdough and cinnamon buns, so much so it’s starting to feel like a Covid-meme. So, if you’re looking to expand your regular line up, why not upgrade your drinks selection?
When it comes to making drinks at home, I admit I can be a bit boring, but Long Tail Mixers have really upgraded my game with a selection of their delicious drinks. Designed to complement dark spirits, but just as delicious enjoyed on their own, Long Tail Mixers feel like the chicest upgrade to weekend drinks.
With the addition of a bit of lime juice and a wedge, as well as a shot of Duppy Share Rum, the Island Spice mix becomes the most delicious of Gold Fashioneds. A bit spicey and citrusy, it’s perfect to enjoy on the balmy evenings we’ve been having, and let’s face it, it’s the closest I’m getting to the Caribbean for a while!
A Spiced Mule is just as simple to concoct, with a glut of Pirate’s Grog Spiced Rum. The Ginger and Lime pairs perfectly for a summer tipple, which feels super fancy, but really takes the minimum amount of effort. Honestly though, as delicious as the mixers are paired with spirits, they’re just as delightful enjoyed by themselves. As a pretty light drinker, I can sometimes get a little fed up of sticking to water, so these drinks are the perfect alternative. Full of flavour, and not too sugary sweet, they’re perfect for summer evenings!
