Sekforde Cocktail Canal Cruise

On the 14th of June 2018, we were treated to a canal cruise from Kings Cross to truly experience all that Sekforde mixers have to offer. Now of course, we’ve tried these before, but this time they were showcasing that the mixers don’t just have to be used for their recommended spirits. They can also be used to create delicious and easy to make cocktails.

Some of our favourites included:

Blackberry Mojito
● 5 blackberries ● 2oz rum (We recommend Mount Gay) ● 1 sprig of mint ● 1 bottle Sekforde Rum mixer
Muddle the blackberries with a few mint leaves in the bottom of a highball glass, then add the rum. Fill the glass with ice and top with Sekforde. Gently stir to mix the ingredients, then garnish with a sprig of mint.

St Germain High Ball (Low ABV)
● 1oz St Germain ● 1 bottle Sekforde Rum Mixer
Add the St Germain to a high-ball glass, fill with ice and then lengthen with Sekforde. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a wedge of lime.

Dill-icious Grapefruit Fizz
● 1.5oz gin (we recommend Kyro Napue) ● 1.5oz grapefruit juice ● 1oz St Germain ● 3 Sprigs Dill ● 1 bottle Sekforde Gin Mixer
Add the gin, grapefruit, St Germain and dill to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake and double strain into an ice filled high-ball glass. Top with Sekforde and garnish with a slice of grapefruit and a sprig of Dill.

Campari Spritz (Low ABV)
● 1oz Campari ● 1 bottle Sekforde Whiskey mixer
Add the campari to a high-ball glass and fill with ice. Top with Sekforde and garnish with a sprig of rosemary.

Sekforde Drinks’ range of natural, botanical mixers started with one for gin, one for rum and one for whisky, however, they are now launching Sekforde for Tequila & Mezcal. A delicious new blend of prickly pear, fig and bitters, designed to complement the flavours of agave spirits. As agave spirits are continuing to rise in popularity, Sekforde offers a delicious and lighter alternative to a Margarita cocktail or easy way to sip a premium tequila or Mezcal without compromising on the flavour of the spirit.Recommended brands: Ocho blanco, Olmeca Altos Plata/Reposado, Tapatio and Patron Silver tequilas in addition to Quiquiriqui Matatlan mezcal.

Every time I attend a Sekforde event, I’m amazed my the taste of these mixers. Now I’m even further amazed by the fact I can create cocktails with the mixers. So make sure you add Sekforde to your shopping list… they’re the perfect compliment to your favourite spirits!!
