The season for sun-drenched sessions is finally here, and we couldn't be more excited. Whether you've planned a romantic picnic with your special someone or an arvo backyard session with your roommates, you're going to want to make sure your tipple of choice is a stand-out serve.

We recently got our hands on the Bombay Bramble, a bold gin naturally flavoured with berries, set to have the nation falling in love at first sip this season.  

Taking the guesswork out of your spring serves, you don't have to be a mixologist to create a refreshing cocktail at home. We've done the hard work and tried and tested three recipes that are sure to satisfy. 

Bombay Bramble Spritz

For a creative twist on the iconic traditional serve, the Bombay Bramble Spritz is sure to impress.

Ingredients 

  • 30ml Bombay Bramble
  • 10ml St Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • 20ml Fresh lemon juice
  • 70ml Capi grapefruit soda
  • 10ml Agave syrup
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Mint sprigs and grapefruit wedge to garnish

Method

  1. Add all ingredients except the soda into a cocktail shaker. Shake well before straining into a wine glass and fill with ice. 
  2. Top with soda and finish with mint sprig and grapefruit wedge to garnish. 
  3. Tip: a good garnish makes all the difference and can add subtle influences to a tipple, so be sure to go all-out with the final touches.

Clover Club

A swoon-worthy sip for your next date night, the Clover Club is the perfect wingman to keep vibes high and the romantic feels flowing. Impress with your mixologist skills with this easy cocktail creation, sure to hit the sweet spot.

Ingredients

  • 60ml Bombay Bramble
  • 30ml Fresh lemon juice
  • 20ml Sugar syrup 
  • 1/2 Egg white
  • Raspberries and blackberries to garnish

Method

  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and first shake without ice. This makes the egg white fluffy.
  2. Open the tin, add ice and shake hard until the shaker is frosted on the outside. Fine strain into a chilled coupette.
  3. To finish, garnish with a skewer of fresh berries. 

Tip: if you don't have a shaker at home, a spill-proof coffee mug or jam jar and lid works perfectly.
