Seven gin and vodka cocktails you need to try

Share This Post

We’ve been busy behind the bar, shaking up a number of mouth-watering cocktails made with our premium gins and vodkas for our Dragon Slayer army to try.

It’s no good keeping these recipes to ourselves, though – sharing is caring, after all. And the best bit is, they’re super simple to make.

All you’ll need to make these alcoholic beverages is our luxurious spirits… why not treat yourself to some of our minis so you can decide which you like the most?

So, without further ado, let’s make some cocktails! Oh, and they’re all named after dragons… because why not!

Seasmoke – Citrus Vodka

For the foundation of this zesty cocktail, you’ll need our citrus vodka – two shots of the stuff for good measure.

Other ingredients include lime juice, sugar syrup, Sicilian lemonade, a slice of lime and a wedge of orange.

Feel free to add to a shaker to combine all the flavours, or simply add straight to your goblet, but don’t forget to give it a good stir and garnish with your lime and orange to finish.

You’ll be left with a refreshing, summery cocktail which captures the taste of a Spanish summer.

Moondance – Berry Vodka

Moondance is a vibrant cocktail that tantalizes the taste buds with its harmonious blend of sweet and tart flavors.

Combine two shots of our berry vodka with triple sec, lime juice, and cranberry juice, to create a balance of fruity notes.

Garnish with fresh lime slices and plump blueberries, making it an ideal choice for summer gatherings or a sophisticated evening soirée.

Syrax – Rhubarb Gin

This refreshing and zesty cocktail perfectly blends botanical and aramatic flavors.

This drink features two shots of Sigurd, pink grapefruit soda, lemon juice, and a touch of sugar syrup for balanced sweetness.

Time for the piece de resistance: a slice of pink grapefruit and a lengthy sprig of basil, a true delight to your senses as you take your first sip.

Your new go-to drink for your monthly girl’s night in.

Silverwing – London Dry Gin

The Silverwing is a sophisticated cocktail made for those who favour simplicity.

Featuring a generous pour of our flagship Sir John Conyers, whose crisp and juniper-forwards notes make this drink one to be savoured.

This spirit is perfectly complimented by the herbal and slightly floral nuances of Mediterranean tonic, so add generously.

A wedge of orange gives a hint of citrusy sweetness and a splash of vibrant colour.

This refreshing and aromatic drink is ideal for those who appreciate classic gin cocktails with a refined twist, making it a perfect choice for any gathering or a relaxing evening at home.

Dreamfyre – Berry Vodka

Featuring our new Berry Vodka as its base, this cocktail is brought to life with a shot of lemon juice, and the unique sweetness of raspberry and rose lemonade.

Add a dash of sugar syrup to harmonise the flavours, which will ensure a smooth and balanced flavour with each sip.

Add fresh blueberries and strawberries, which can be enjoyed after finishing your drink, as they are infused with the delicious spirit.

Caraxes – Original Vodka

This bold cocktail that marries the clean, smooth taste of our original vodka with the bright, tangy flavors of fresh orange and cranberry juice.

Add two shots of our original vodka, with lots of ice, and be sure to garnish with a large slice of orange.

Caraxes delivers a refreshing burst of citrus, perfect for all pallets.

Vhager – Strawberry and Mint

A fan favourite, our strawberry and mint gin makes any drink ready for the summer period.

To create Vhager, combine our strawberry and mint-infused gin with the tangy zest of lime juice and strawberry sugar syrup.

Enhance with the effervescence of Mexican lime soda, and garnish with fresh mint leaves and ripe strawberries; this drink offers a harmonious blend of fruity, herbal, and citrus flavors – to be enjoyed in the sun, or by a warm fire.
