The festive season is almost upon us and with Christmas adverts already running, we’re starting to turn our thoughts to the party season.
Some of you may have already started your annual hunt for presents, I know I have, but we thought we’d turn your attention to the food and drink side of things.
Whether you plan on holding a big festive gathering or a simple family event, you’re likely to find yourself in need of a tipple. Rather than offering the same old drinks, why not try something new this year that everyone can tailor to their tastes, even those who are the designated drivers! Sounds good right?
Laimon Fresh is a new all natural soft drink with a lemon, lime and mint flavour, making it perfect for mixing delicious cocktails. To help inspire you we’ve got a few tasty recipes below plus your chance to win a case!!
Laimon Fresh Mojito
To make the perfect mojito in seconds just add white rum and it’s done. For an extra wow factor, add lime slices and garnish with mint leaves.
Pour 50ml of white rum into a tall glass
Fill glass 2/3 of the way up with crushed ice
Pour a 330ml can of Laimon Fresh in to the glass and stir
Fresh berries packed with antioxidant qualities add to the natural ingredients in Laimon Fresh to present a fruity refreshing long drink.
Pour 60ml of Vodka and some crushed ice into a highball glass
Crush 2 blackberries and 2 blueberries in a shaker
Then add ice, 1 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp sugar syrup
Shake and strain into the highball glass and top with Laimon Fresh
Garnish with blackberry and blueberry with a mint leaf
The natural sweetness of the Laimon Fresh works in contrast with the herbal bitterness of the Campari to deliver a serious sip for discerning drinks fans.
Shake 30ml Campari and 30ml Martini Rosso over ice
Strain into an ice filled short/rocks glass
Top with Laimon fresh and garnish with lemon zest
Laimon Rum punch
Rum punches arrived on English shores when traders returned from global jaunts during the early 17th century. The word ‘punch’ is derived from the Hindi ‘panch’ meaning five and these early drinks had five ingredients. The Laimon Rum punch follows this recipe, replacing the fruit Laimon Fresh for the more traditional tea.
Shake 60ml dark rum, a dash of Angostura aromatic bitters, 4 tsp of lemon juice and 1 tsp of sugar syrup
Strain over ice in a highball glass
Top with Laimon fresh and garnish with a Mint Sprig
