I’m so excited that spring is almost here. The birds are singing their sweet melodies and the morning dew has replaced the icy frost on lawns and cars. That makes me want to celebrate the arrival of warmer days ahead.
What better way to celebrate than using the flavors of spring, such as mint, mango, ginger, strawberry and raspberry to concoct a little spring in a glass. Spring cocktails should be mixed with these in-season fresh ingredients – it’s the optimal way to welcome the season of rebirth!
Now is an excellent time to stock up on liquors and gather a variety of spring drink recipes perfect for entertaining this time of year. Nothing says spring like this fresh Sparkling Strawberry Cocktail by Martha Stewart served as an accompaniment to a nice Springtime Quiche (Compliments of Chez Us).
Looking for something a little crisper and not as sweet? How about this Cel-Ray Spring Tonic made with celery leaves and cucumber. Great with fresh made Guacamole and Chips. Sitting on the patio at the end of the day and watching the sun descend while sipping on this Estrella’s Beet It Cocktail. The color will match that of a dusk colored sky.
Garnishing cocktails with fresh herbs and berries will add a little pizzaz and make your mouth water for more. Add the 4 Ms to your list; Mint Juleps, Mimosas, Mojitos and Margaritas. They make for perfect signature cocktails for any spring occasion, whether it be Mother’s Day, a bridal shower or a last minute al fresco gathering.
This Mango Cocktail recipe uses quality vodka, Cointreau , mango puree and lime juice to kick start any event. Try pairing it up with a fresh mango salsa, simply delicious. These selection of 40 Ginger Beer recipes and over a dozen Sangria recipes will give you the inspiration you’ll need all season long.
