4 Cool Cocktail Recipes You Need To Try This Summer Semrushtools

There’s nothing better than mixing your own refreshing cocktails to sip in the sun on a nice summer’s day. While classics like mojitos and margaritas are always reliable, and adventurous new cocktails with loads of ingredients are exciting to make, there’s a lot to be said for drinks that are different and easy to make.

It’s summer and it’s all about the barbecue. But, wait a second: we know that inside that foodie- ready to marinate with the best spices and grill like there’s no tomorrow- there’s a hidden mixologist waiting to shine. Because if you like food, you want the best ingredients and that applies to drinks, too.

When it comes to dining, pepper and salt are a power couple. But at the bar, salt tends to dominate while pepper is forgotten (save for a bloody mary). But now that’s changing: pepper is spicing up sweet, savoury, fruity, and earthy drinks. Below are our favourite cocktails that use seasoning perfection to balance flavours. Make them sans-booze for a delicious mocktail.  Enjoy!

 The elegant Raspberry Black Pepper Champagne Cocktail

This drink goes the extra mile with a rim dipped in a mixture of black pepper and sugar. Using raspberry puree, oranges, champagne, vodka, simple syrup, and topping with thyme and lemon, this cocktail makes a gleeful addition to a party or brunch.

The tropical Painkiller

Transport to an island in the sun with pineapple juice, coconut cream, rum, and orange juice. Rather than the called-for nutmeg, we use White Pipali Pearls to add a hint of complex spice that cuts the sweetness.

The sophisticated Dalmatian

Whip up a quick pepper-infused simple syrup and combine vodka with grapefruit juice. Don’t be fooled by the minimalism – this drink offers massive taste. Rather than black pepper, we use Red Kampot Pepper to add a hint of sweetness and colour.
