As we’re all spending a lot of time at home right now we decided to create a handy series of #pantrycocktails to give you some inspiration on what you could do to spice up your drinks.

Moscow Mule

The Moscow mule drink was created by John Martin who couldn’t sell his vodka, Jack Morgan couldn’t sell his ginger beer, and a mystery lady that had too many copper mugs.

Together, it creates a fabulous fizzy beverage with fiery ginger beer, vodka and lime.

Fill your glass with ice and add in the vodka, lime, and ginger beer. Swirl it gently and garnish.

Gimlet

The Gimlet is an easy to make cocktail with a sharp kick! This three ingredients cocktail has a rich naval history and can be easily made with just a few ingredients found in your home kitchen

  • 60ml Colombo gin
  • 25ml lime juice
  • 25ml simple syrup (1 part sugar + 1 part water, heat until sugar is dissolved)
  • Lime wheel for garnish (optional)

Add in gin, lime, and simple syrup into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Cuba Libre

The Cuba Libre (free Cuba) is a 100 year old cocktail with a history that is tied with the Cuban independence. Today it remains one of the most ordered cocktails across the world

Squeeze the lime juice into a glass. Add in a lime wedge and muddle it to release the oils. Add rum and ice, and top it up with cola. Stir gently and garnish with lime wedge.

Screw Driver

It is believed that this cocktail was named in the 1920s by oil workers in Persia because they would use a screwdrivers as a stirrer at the absence of a spoon.

Fill a highball glass with ice. Add the vodka, orange and salt. Stir gently and serve.
