Take your pick and craft a chic cocktail for your video calls tonight.
Put a few ice cubes into a wine glass then hold 5 mint leaves in the palm of one hand and clap your other hand over it – this will bruise the leaves just enough without making them bitter. Drop the leaves into the glass then pour over 25ml rum, juice ½ lime, 1 tsp sugar syrup and a few dashes of Angostura bitters. Stir very gently then slowly top with champagne.
2 parts elderflower liquor
3 parts sparkling
1 parts Club soda (or soda water)
4 Persian cucumbers, divided
2 750-ml bottles rosé
½ cup bianco vermouth
1 bunch mixed herbs, such as basil, mint, tarragon, and/or parsley, divided
2 12-oz. cans citrus soda, such as Limonata or Sprite
Belvedere Vodka 700ml
1 sprig thyme or lemon thyme
½ ripe peach, sliced into thin wedges, divided
1 ounce vodka
