Memorial Day Weekend is here (well, nearly) and that means summer is around the corner. Here’s some brand-new recipes to help you kick off the weekend in style, with new vodka flavors from Belvedere and Grey Goose and a refreshing “Big Ginger” drink (Irish Whiskey), perfect for pool parties.
Belvedere’s ‘Mango Passion’ is summer in a bottle – the perfect chilled refreshment for the warm days ahead.
As it’s created with all natural ingredients and real fruit, no sugar added, the flavor is very light and refreshing. Not overly sweet or artificial tasting like some other flavored vodkas can be.
50 ml Belvedere Mango Passion
15 ml Domaine de Canton
10 ml fresh lime juice
20 ml cranberry juice
Combine all ingredients in a tin and shake with ice. Fine strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with an orange twist.
The BIG GINGER combines the refreshing bite of ginger ale with the caramel, vanilla and citrus undertones of 2 GINGERS, creating the perfect simple and refreshing recipe to enjoy as you celebrate Memorial Day.
2 parts 2 GINGERS® Irish Whiskey
METHOD: Pour the 2 GINGERS® Irish Whiskey into a pint glass with ice. Top with ginger ale, followed by a wedge of a lemon and lime.
If you’re playing host for this year’s festivities, try out the BIG GINGER in a pitcher – just multiply the 2 GINGERS parts by 8, pour over ice into any pitcher or punchbowl, and top with ginger ale and lemon & lime wedges.
Grey Goose vodka has a new summer flavor – melon!
GREY GOOSE Le Melon Mule
A twist on a classic, this delicious blend of sweet and spice highlights the full ripeness of the Cavaillon melon.
1 ½ Parts GREY GOOSE® Le Melon
3 Parts Ginger Beer
3 Lime Wedges
1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add GREY GOOSE Le Melon and the juice from three lime wedges.
2. Shake well and strain into a high ball glass filled with crushed ice.
3. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a lime wedge.
