Ripple Summer Cocktails
Ripple Summer Cocktails by Ferm LIVING
Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner, so we thought it’s time for some summery cocktails and outdoor entertaining. We all want to get outside and soak up those rays and make the most of our outdoor space and fresh air, both day and night. For most of us this will probably include dinner with friends and family, BBQ’s and having a new cocktail or two, to try with your friends sounds like a good idea. Ferm Living have teamed with the brilliant bartender of the Copenhagen bar, Duck and Cover, Kasper Riewe, who has created a signature drink Ripple Rhapsody, served in the Ripple long glasses, Kasper say’s it’s a taste of home. Made with gorgeous homemade Rhubarb cordial. It looks so tasty and refreshing and has a beautiful sunset colour that sings of warm balmy evenings….. we cannot wait to try it! We have a different cocktail recipe for each of the Ripple design glasses, there’s sure to be one that you want to taste.
If you don’t feel like making your own rhubarb cordial you can by it or similar cocktail rhubarb syrups instead. Add a stem of rhubarb for a pretty finish and the long Fein brass spoon works perfectly for mixing in these long glasses.
If sparkling wine is a favourite, why not try this little cocktail also created by Kasper Riewe, it’s called Falling Leaves and is served in the elegant retro styled Champagne saucers which we LOVE….. makes you feel like a Hollywood star, they are so chic! It’s easy to measure your spirits with the brass Ferm Living measurer too and it sits perfectly on the top of the long glasses.
Not forgetting those of us who don’t drink alcohol we also have a cool Espresso cocktail, perfect for brunch and coffee lovers!
Something for the kids…..
If you prefer a non alcoholic drink even the children can enjoy and help make then try some homemade lemonade!
We have found a healthier homemade Lemonade recipe using either natural sugar substitutes, honey or nectars, I also like coconut sugar which doesn’t taste of coconut but is a lower GI and also has some vitamins and minerals, why not try it, just adapt the choice of sugar to whichever you prefer to use….
- Add sugar and 1 cup water to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
- Once boiled, remove from heat and add to a glass pitcher.
- Add lemon juice and remaining water.
- Place in the fridge for 2-3 hours to chill.
- Serve with ice cubes., why not add a sprig of mint, slices of lemon or if you feel adventurous maybe some basil leaves
You could also try this delicious Strawberry basil lemonade which can be both alcoholic or non alcoholic….
It’s a great website by Gaby with many delicious recipes and this cocktail is soooo easy……
SKÅL as the Danish say or Cheers 🥂
