Gather ingredients

Gather all the necessary ingredients for the cocktail. First, go to the market or supermarket to buy fresh fruit, such as lemons, limes or berries.

Don't forget to stock up on any special additions, such as mint leaves or herbs.

Store all ingredients clearly, so that you can quickly find everything while mixing your cocktail. Store the fresh fruit in the refrigerator and place the spirits in a clearly visible place at your home bar. Place the syrups and special additives within reach so that you can work smoothly. Finally, check that you have collected all the necessary ingredients and have fun mixing your delicious cocktail!


Preparation method

Cut the fruit into equal pieces for even flavor distribution. Make sure the fruit is ripe and juicy for the best flavor. Remove any seeds or kernels to avoid unwanted bitterness. Think of a mix of strawberries, peaches and blueberries for a colorful and tasty combination.

Prepare a syrup with a surprising twist by adding mint leaves, ginger or even lavender. Bring water and sugar to the boil and add the chosen herbs for a unique taste experience. Let the syrup cool before pouring it over the sliced fruit. Experiment with different herb combinations to give your own refreshing and innovative twist to the syrup.


To blend

Combine the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously to blend the flavors.

  • Pour the measured amounts of all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice cubes.
  • Make sure the shaker is tightly closed before you start shaking to avoid spills.
  • Shake the shaker vigorously for 15-20 seconds to thoroughly mix the ingredients and harmonize the flavors.
  • Once you've finished shaking, carefully open the shaker and strain the mix into a glass to retain the ice.
  • Feel free to garnish the cocktail with, for example, a lemon peel or a cherry for a finishing touch.

Cheers and enjoy your perfectly mixed cocktail!
