Springtime Cocktails You Should Try This Year

Spring is here! And with it, the time to bring out the fancy cocktails.

As soon as the temperatures start rising and we feel the first rays of sun hitting our face, it’s time to go out and chill outside. And what better way to enjoy good weather and interesting company on an Easter Sunday than with springtime cocktails in your hands?

Yes, it’s time for you to learn some new mixed drinks and try the twisted classics you’ve never sampled. 

Lucky for you, we’ve created a list of all must-try spring cocktails for the upcoming Easter holiday. So, wait no more and check out our blog.

Honey Rose Margarita

Some new cocktails you haven’t tried yet are just a spin-off of a classic. However, this rose-flavored margarita will have you forget about the original version in a minute. And after you have a few of these spring cocktails, you won’t have anything else on your mind.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Blanco tequila
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz Lemon juice (fresh)
  • .5 oz Water with honey
  • Two dashes of rose water

Instructions

Get a shaker, then add ice and all of the ingredients. Shake the drink and strain over ice into a glass. Using a rocks glass is the recommended option. 

And, to make it look like recognizable springtime cocktails, garnish the drink with a few rose petals.

Cherry Blossom

Not many things scream SPRING like cherry blossoms. So, it’s only right we have it amongst our fancy cocktails to try during this Easter Sunday.

Ingredients

  • 1.25 oz Tequila
  • .25 oz Grenadine
  • 1 oz Grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz Lime juice
  • Garnish
  • Salt

Instructions

Use a martini glass if you want to do this properly. And the rim should be salted, but if you’re making new mixed drinks for a group of friends, ask them how they prefer the glass (with or without the salt). 

Shake all of the ingredients with ice and serve in a martini glass. The garnish requires a grapefruit slice or a maraschino cherry.

Never underestimate the visual effect that cocktails need to be unique.

Tequila Honeysuckle

All new cocktails sound funny at first. The names are usually an intriguing wordplay that makes you want to try the drink. Well, if you’re in the mood for something called Tequila Honeysuckle this Easter holiday, check out its recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Blanco Tequila
  • 0.75 oz Lime juice
  • 0.75 oz Honey syrup

Instructions

It doesn’t get more straightforward than this. Shake the ingredients with ice, strain into a glass, and garnish with a lime wedge.

If you feel like making fancy cocktails, serve this drink in a coupe.

Lizzy Lake

We said this is a list of the best springtime cocktails. And, to make everything a bit fresher and spring-like, we’ll be using cucumber to make this drink.

Give Lizzy Lake a shot before assuming it will resemble a healthy smoothie.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz Gin
  • One egg white
  • Three drops of rose water
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • Two slices cucumber
  • Lemon juice

Instructions

You’ll need two thick cucumber slices to make this drink. Muddle the first one in a cocktail shaker, and save the remaining for the end. 

Then, add the rest of the ingredients and ice to the mixing container, and give it a good shake. Strain the drink into a rocks glass, over ice, of course.

Then, to complete the ensemble, garnish it with a cucumber slice.

Mint Julep

We couldn’t make a cocktails list without bourbon. No worries, there are new mixed drinks that still include it in the ingredients. And we got one that will make you feel like you’re holding spring in a cup.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Bourbon
  • Two mint prigs
  • .5 oz Simple syrup
  • Crushed Ice

Instructions

The first thing you’ll have to do is muddle the mint and the simple syrup. You’ll be using a julep cup to serve this drink, so utilize it for the muddling part. 

Then, fill about three-quarters of the cup with crushed ice. Pour the bourbon over it, and fill the cup with crushed ice to the top. 

Add a sprig of mint and take a sip. You’ll feel the spring right away.

Mezcal Pineapple Sour

If you want to sip on drinks that look like spring cocktails, then this indeed is a good pick. Mezcal Pineapple Sour looks like the perfect drink for sunny days.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz Doña Vega Espadín
  • .75 oz Agave
  • .75 oz Lemon juice
  • .5 oz Pineapple juice (fresh)
  • One egg white

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice, then strain. Then, shake everything once more, but dry. Use a coupe to serve this drink and make your friends feel like kings and queens.

Raspberry Lemon & Lime Ginger Beer Cocktail

Trying new cocktails with intriguing names is always a fun experience. However, cool nicknames sometimes hide the flavor. You’ll know what you’re getting right off the bat with this one.

Ingredients

  •  1.5 oz Lemon and lime flavored ginger beer
  • .75 raspberry puree
  • Limoncello
  • 4 oz Champagne
  • Lime juice
  • Fresh raspberries

Instructions

You won’t need a shaker to make this drink. A champagne glass will be necessary, though.  

Combine the ginger beer, raspberry puree, and limoncello in the glass, and give everything a good stir. Top it off with champagne and squeeze in a bit of lime juice. 

The only thing left to do is garnish the drink. Of course, this is where fresh raspberries come in handy. 

Basil Tom Collins

Giving classic cocktails a twist is always fun. That’s why we’ve incorporated basil into a Tom Collins, and the results were quite refreshing – ideal after a splendid Easter Sunday meal.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz Vodka
  • .5 oz Simple syrup
  • .75 oz Lemon juice
  • Club soda
  • Three Basil leaves

Instructions

If you already know how to make a Tom Collins, you’ll be a few steps ahead of the company. To make our cocktail, combine all ingredients (except the club soda) into a mixing container with ice and give it a good shake.

Double strain so no basil pieces end up in the drink, then garnish with fresh leaves and serve.

Corpse Reviver

Talk about intriguing names. A drink named Corpse Reviver must be special to get a handle like that. But what makes it so unique?

For starters, it’s got a splash of Absinthe. The rest you’ll see in our ingredients list. Ingredients

  • Dash of Absinthe
  • 1.5 oz White Gin
  • .5 oz Cointreau
  • .5 oz Lillet Blanc
  • .75 oz Lemon juice
  • Cherry (for garnish)

Instructions

No, the Absinthe won’t dominate the flavor. You’ll only need a splash of the notorious alcohol. And, you’ll use it to rinse the glass at the beginning.

Next, put all of the remaining ingredients in a shaker with ice, and shake for a while.

Double strain, and pour the drink. You’ll need a Nick & Nora glass to serve this cocktail, and of course, don’t forget the cherry garnish.
