Variation of a French Summer Cocktail


Variation of the French Summer Cocktail I created.

  • 2 oz Chambord
  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Lemon Juice (could probably use up to 1 oz)
  • 1/4 Rich Simple Syrup
  • Shake and Strain into a Collins Glass with Ice
  • Top with Soda Water or 7-Up
  • Garnish with 2-3 Black Raspberries on a pick. 

I think this recipe could use some fine tuning on the balance of ingredients. Also, here’s another idea for a similar drink.

Use a Cocktail glass, take out the Soda Water and Ice. When putting in the finishing touches, add the oils of a lemon. Garnish with 2-3 Black Raspberries on a pick and also a Lemon Spiral.

Crocodile Cooler


Le Crocodile Cooler!

  • 1 oz Melon Liqueur
  • 1 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 2/3 oz Triple Sec
  • 2 oz Sweet and Sour Mix
  • Top with 7-up Soda
  • Garnish with a Lime wheel, Cherry, and a straw

This is a “Build on Ice” cocktail. Meaning put in your ice and pour the ingredients. For this cocktail, you’ll end up with a nice gradient of colour when you finish pouring your ingredients. Before you drink it, you’ll want to stir it up a little bit to mix it together. Depending on how alcoholic you want your drink to be, just vary the Vodka amount.

Tastes: Pretty awesome, I made mine with 1 oz of Vodka and you can barely taste the vodka. Very refreshing and sweet. Great for a patio drink.
