Rekorderlig - Perfect Pitcher - Summer Cup-01Some of us might find the thought of getting a load of cocktail ingredients pretty taxing and that's where this post comes in. Rekorderlig have launched a whole selection of easy cocktail recipes just in time for the Bank Holiday that include our favourite cider.

Basically we don't need to persuade you too much to try these at home the jug, the Rekorderlig colours and the thoughts of a flavoured pitcher should speak for itself.

There are a collection of cocktail recipes below so you can try something different this weekend. It really does seem like Rekorderlig is going to be all anyone is drinking this summer and now you have a perfect BBQ pitcher list of drinks to add to your bottles in the fridge.

The limited edition cocktail collection balances flavours from the refreshing Rekorderlig range with delicious ingredients to create a unique style of mixology that encourages  cider fans to become  cocktail connoisseurs.

The range of cocktail Rekorderlig includes   the ‘Svenska Cup’ the creme-de-la-creme of summer cocktails bursting with strawberries, mint, cucumber, lime, elderflower and mixed with Absolut vodka, finished with Strawberry & Lime Rekorderlig for a mouthwatering taste.

 

Also the ‘Passionfruit Collins’. Combine Rekorderlig’s limited edition Passionfruit flavour with fresh lemon juice, soda water, Passionfruit vodka and passionfruit puree. Shake together and garnish with a lemon twist.

For those that like the classics, the ‘Midsummer Martini’  mixes vanilla gomme, gin and lemon juice topped with Apple & Blackcurrant Rekorderlig, giving a satisfyingly bitterly-smooth experience. For the sophisticated and sweet toothed the ‘Rekorderlini’ contains monin chocolate shaken with champagne and Pear Rekorderlig, garnished with cherries offering an elegant edge.

There is also the ‘Swedish House Beet’. Mixing Apple Rekorderlig with Courvoisier, slices of fresh beetroot, mint and fresh lemon juice served in a rocks glass, this recipe is a fine concoction for the more adventurous drinker. And the ‘Stockholm Storm’ offers a sunny taste of Sweden for all to enjoy. In a jug add Brugal blanco, Brugal anejo and coconut rum, stir in chambord and orange juice and top with Mango and Raspberry Rekorderlig.

The range of cider cocktails will launch at the Rekorderlig Swedish Midsummer House this  June. Visit the Rekorderlig  Facebook page for ticket information and the Rekorderlig website for the cocktail recipes.
