To celebrate World Cocktail Day on 13 May, Moët Hennessy have released four delicious cocktail recipes using their portfolio of spirits, designed to enjoy at home.
The easy to make drinks include: Belvedere Almond Milk Punch, Hennessy & Ginger, Glenmorangie Ginger & Honey Highball, and Ardbeg Shortie’s Dirty Daiquiri.
These cocktails have been designed to make the most of ingredients commonly found in most kitchens, and can be enjoyed with family and friends over an online chat to toast World Cocktail Day.
The Belvedere Almond Milk Punch is a light and smooth version of a traditional milk punch, and the Hennessy and Ginger is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.
As for the whisky cocktails, the Glenmorangie Ginger and Honey Highball combines the fruity notes of Glenmorangie with sweet citrus, and the Ardbeg Shortie’s Dirty Daiquiri is a smoky twist on the popular cocktail, perfect to enjoy with a summer barbecue.
To learn how to make the drinks, cocktail fans are being encouraged to join the Moët Hennessy virtual summer masterclass on 20 May live on Instagram via Clos19.com.
The masterclass will take viewers through the preparation of these four cocktails, and will be hosted by UK’s Belvedere brand Ambassador, Mark Tracey, and bartender at the American Bar at the Savoy, Jake O’Brien Murphy.
Mark and Jake will also discuss various summer cocktail trends they have seen grow within the industry.
