This thirst-quenching beverage combines blue gin, maraschino liqueur, blue curacao, and egg whites. The combination of the liquors and the light texture of the whipped eggwhites result in a dreamy and sweet treat you would love to capture in your camera. 

Ingredients

Steps to Make

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and strain in a glass.
  2. Top it with soda and whipped egg whites.

2. Cardinale

A glass of Cardinale

Why do liquor lovers prefer their drinks served on the rocks? Besides the refreshing factor, the beautiful layers of ice cubes create an elegant touch to the beverage. Take for example this classy cocktail made by The Cocktail Suite @thecocktailsuite

The Cardinale was supposed to be the first variation of the Negroni. According to history, this drink was created for a German cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church in 1950 by a bartender at the Hotel Excelsior in Rome. 

Made with gin, Campari, vermouth, and an orange twist, the Cardinale has a dry taste with a combination of sweet and bitter notes. The orange twist does not only act as a garnish, but its oil gives off a subtle citrus taste to the drink. 

Ingredients

Steps to Make

  1. Add all the ingredients except the orange twist to a mixing glass and stir over ice. 
  2. Strain into a rocks glass over small format ice.
  3. Express the oil from an orange twist and add to the drink as a garnish.

3. ƇЄƬƲƧ

A glass of ƇЄƬƲƧ

Nothing screams sea than this bright blue-colored cocktail from Amber @mythologyandmixology. The bartender got her idea to create such an attractive beverage from the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon. The story behind this art is how ƇЄƬƲƧ, the sea serpent, was sent by Poseidon to destroy the kingdom of Cepheus and kill Andromeda.

While a fascinating story inspired this cocktail, it only requires a few ingredients such as Ouze rinse, apple-infused gin, blue curacao, pineapple, and lemon. The result of this mixture is a slightly sour and sweet beverage that can soothe your “blues” away.  

Ingredients

  • Ouzo Rinse
  • Apple-Infused Gin
  • Blue Curaçao
  • Pineapple (clarified)
  • Lemon
  • Apple and mint (garnish)

Steps to Make

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a shaker. 
  2. Strain and serve in a decorative glass.

Hibiscus Paloma by @vivirtequila screams spring and summer in one glass. The combination of tart grapefruit and lime juices is well balanced by the sweet and floral hibiscus syrup. 

While many think that the bright hue results in a super sweet taste, this version is not overwhelming, instead, it has citrus and sour notes that perfectly complement the rest of the ingredients.

7. Mojito with Lime Oleo Saccharum

Everyone who is fond of mojitos has probably tried all sorts of tricks to develop a new twist to this classic drink. 

While the industry has standards for making a mojito, Rami Lavy @ramithemixologist thought it lacks the peel flavor, which is essential to add more depth and texture to the cocktail. So, he came up with Mojito with Lime Oleo Saccharum instead of the usual simple syrup.

Ingredients

Steps to Make 

  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker
  2. Add ice, cover with a shaker tin, and give it a quick shake. 
  3. Pour to a serving glass, and add more ice if needed. Top it with sparkling water.
