Best Cocktail for the Australian Summer

The best cocktail to try out during summer is the “White Sangria”. Everyone knows the typical sangria, made with lots of fruit and red wine. The fruity flavour is what makes it such a hit in summer, it is one of the go to cocktails to keep you cool and refreshed during the heat wave.

But we think this traditional cocktail is due for a mix up! Swap out the red wine for, yep you guessed it, white wine! This cocktail is perfect for people who don’t like sangria because of the red wine! This cocktail is so amazing because it can be easily made in big batches.

The most important thing to remember is to not skimp on the wine. You will probably be looking at spending up to $20 a bottle. Any cheaper than that and the quality is poor and will result in a not so delicious tasting cocktail.

Best Cocktail for the Australian Autumn

It has been decided! The best cocktail for the Australian autumn is called “Apple Bottom”. Whilst on our quest for the best cocktail for autumn, we found that there are a lot of apple themed drinks. But we found this one to be the best.

It is called “Apple Bottom” because you’ll be muddling apples at the bottom of the cocktail! The main ingredient is bourbon. But don’t worry if bourbon isn’t your favourite, because the sweet taste of apple is there to change the flavour up a bit.

Spring is here, this means the days are getting longer and the temperature is starting to heat up. Get yourself pumped for rapidly approaching party season with the “Lavender Lemon Drop” cocktail. This cocktail truly captures the essence of spring and is certainly the best way to break out of the winter rut.

The “Lavender Lemon Drop” is a new take on the standard martini. You may think lavender is an odd taste to include in a cocktail, but just a couple of buds are all it takes to create the softest lavender essence.
