Mixology Basics

Want to keep it simple?

 

Here is a backbone recipe to follow to make your own customized specialty beverage:

  • 2 oz.* Spirit of Choice (any distilled spirit can work!) OR a Mocktail Base

    • Mocktail suggestions: Plain kombucha, Seltzer, or a non-alcoholic distilled spirit such as Seedlip Grove 42 or Seedlip Aromatic 108. 

  • 1 oz.* Social Mixers Simple Syrup 

  • Seltzer

  • Choice of citrus: Orange, Lime, Lemon, etc. 

  • Include bitters, if that’s your jam - if not, your drink will still be delicious.

Shake vigorously with ice for several seconds and strain into a glass,

or stir based on your preference, and enjoy!
