are you hankering for some fresh, springtime cocktails? because we’ve got some really scrumptious new drink recipes to share with you today. the folks at SKYY have two brand new vodka infusions, so i hired bartender extraordinaire rosie ruiz to shake things up, and create something refreshing and unique for you using SKYY’s new Infusions – Tropical Mango and Honeycrisp Apple. and to celebrate springtime cocktail hour and get you bar cart ready, i’m giving away this beautiful dolce vita rose gold bar carts from CB2 to one very happy winner. cheers to that!
SKYY Infusions Honeycrisp Apple (above) has a crisp and balanced sweet-tart flavor, so rosie added fresh lemon juice, a homemade meyer lemon shrub, as well as Organic Agave Nectar and a rosemary sprig for a light and extra fresh flavor. sooo good! lily and i just had to do a cocktail taste test while photographing these and we did not want to put them down.
our other springtime cocktail (above) is made with SKYY Infusions Tropical Mango, which has sweet, ripe, tropical fruit aromas and a distinctive mango taste for a long, smooth finish. so delicious paired with rosie’s additional ingredients, including fresh lemon juice and an earl grey tea simple syrup she made, along with some other really exotic but easy to make ingredients we’re going to share with you below.
