1. Did You Say You Have a Cuban One For Me?

Best for cigar-lovers out there, Did You Say You Have a Cuban One For Me is a real treat. Blow your mind with a version of Cuba Libre made with cigar-infused rum. Prepare yourself for the eccentric combination of flavors in this cocktail by @cocktail.vision. This is a real labor of love.
Did You Say You Have a Cuban One For Me
Ingredients:
  • ½ oz Montecristo Cigar infused rum 
  • 1 ½ oz Clément V.S.O.P Rhum Vieux Agricole 
  • ½ oz honey liqueur 
  • 1 oz pineapple juice 
  • ½ oz fresh lemon juice 
  • 1 bar spoon smoked pecan wood maple syrup 
  • ½ bar spoon charred pineapple bourbon sauce 
  • Pinch of sea salt 
  • Smoked paprika 
  • Frozen cola ice

Steps to make:

  1. Using a sphere ice mold, make frozen cola by directly pouring the cola into the mold and freezing it for 2 hours or more. 
  2. Infuse a 2-inch long Montecristo cigar in 8 oz of white rum for 8 hours. For a milder taste, remove the cigar after 2-4 hours. 
  3. Smoke paprika by trapping some cigar or other wood smoke in a mason jar with a fitted lid. 
  4. Add a tablespoon of paprika into the jar then close the lid tightly. Let sit for 1-2 hours.

  6. Shake well and double strain into a cigar whiskey glass to highlight the cigar aroma and flavor. 
  7. Top with a frozen cola sphere and a dusting of smoked paprika.

2. Piña Whatthellada

The tropical vibe doesn’t have to stop in the summer. And so @empirebrickofgin created this blue version of piña colada that evokes the vision of the sea. Enjoy this by the pool and never miss the fun. Spruce up your dehydrated lemons by adding some food coloring before drying it in the oven.

3. Jungle Cat

When you hear the words “jungle cat”, what comes to your mind? You might think of a tiger, but @barrelageddad changes that with this Jungle Cat cocktail. The tiger might have really inspired this creation, though, with its bright orange color. This version of the Bermuda Hundred uses maple syrup, though, instead of orgeat.

4. Passionfruit and Orange Gin & Tea

Gin is such an amazing spirit to use for cocktails and the Gin & Tonic is a classic that everyone loves. However, @onedrinkaday decided to take it a notch out of the box by making this G&T not with tonic but with tea! Yes, and it’s not just ordinary tea, it’s butterfly pea flower tea known for its color-changing property that makes the cocktail more alluring. Try this Gin and Tea cocktail made more interesting with real passionfruit pulp.

Passionfruit and Orange Gin & Tea

  • 1 oz gin

  • ½ oz orange syrup
  • ½ oz passionfruit syrup
  • A few dashes of orange bitters

  3. Drop 1 bar spoon of passionfruit pulp and seeds in a wine glass.
  4. Add ice then add the gin mixture.
  5. Top with butterfly pea flower tea. 
  6. Add garnishing as desired.

5. Spring Feelings with Rhubarb Sour

Japan almost always means cherry blossoms and who says you can’t enjoy spring in autumn? Indulge in some Japanese-inspired cocktail made with a Japanese liquor created by Keily @the.tipsy.adventure_ . Introducing Akashi-Tai Shiraume Umeshu, a rich and syrupy plum sake made by infusing plums in sake for 6 months and then aged for another 2 years. Keily did not include the step-by-step procedure though, so feel free to experiment and recreate at your own risk.

8. Tangerine Pisco Fizz

Do you love the sugar rush from kombucha? While it is touted as good for gut health because of prebiotics, it is also notorious for its high sugar content.
