3 Fresh & Simple Cocktails to Create for Spring
There’s more than tender, young plants bursting onto the scene in mild weather—we’re also looking forward to some refreshing spring cocktails. We’re busting out fruits, veggies and herbs to pair with some of our favorite liquors. The results? Light cocktails showing off bright flavors.
Here are three of our favorites you must try now:
Rosemary and Cucumber Gin and Tonic
- ½ cucumber, peeled and sliced
- 2 lime wedges
- 2 rosemary sprigs
- 2 oz. gin
- 4 oz. tonic
- Muddle cucumber, rosemary, juice from one lime wedge and 1 oz. gin in a glass.
- Strain into a tall glass.
- Add remaining gin and tonic, plus ice and cucumber slices to your taste.
- Garnish with rosemary sprig.
We recommend our Alfieri Beverage with its unique and subtle design—and ample room for your G&T.
Strawberry & Rose Spritzer
- ¼ cup strawberries
- 1 Tbsp. fine sugar
- 1 tsp. rose water
- 2 cups rose wine
- 3 cups seltzer
- Muddle strawberries, sugar and rose water.
- Split among four glasses.
- Add wine and seltzer, and gently stir. (Pro tip: make sure the wine and seltzer are chilled—no ice!)
We recommend the versatile Alfieri Beverage.
- 2 oz. rum
- 1 oz. fresh lime juice
- 1 oz. simple syrup
- 5–10 mint leaves
- 4 oz. cubed watermelon

We recommend our Strauss On The Rocks DOF, with its stunning and unique glass bottom—when you see it, it’s time for a refill. (Psst! It’s also a great vessel for sipping bourbon.)
