Brockmans Gin Serves Up Purple Passion Cocktails For Valentine’s Day

Brockmans Gin Serves Up Purple Passion Cocktails For Valentine’s DayBrockmans Gin is bringing the colors of passion and romance into Valentine’s Day cocktails this year. While Champagne is fine, this trio of sophisticated pink and violet cocktails are delicious and better fit the mood of the celebration visually. All three distinct cocktails feature Brockmans Gin, the award-wining gin ‘Like No Other’ in the tactile black bottle that brims with blueberry and blackberry notes.

ULTRA VIOLET  – from the new collection of Brockmans Gin Spring cocktail recipes

2 oz. Brockmans Gin

¾ oz. Absinthe

¾ oz. Crème de Violette

¼ oz. Dry Vermouth

Combine all the ingredients with ice and stir for 5 -6 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini or coupe glass and garnish with an edible flower.

FROSÉ – features the scent of aromatic ice with a cool, crisp sparkle

2 oz. Brockmans Gin

1 oz. Rose liqueur

¼ oz. Freshly squeezed lemon juice

4 oz.  Sweet rosé wine

2 X small scoops crushed ice

Combine Brockmans Gin, rose liqueur, lemon juice and rosé wine in a shaker with ice. Strain into a large stemmed wine glass filled with crushed ice.

Alternatively add all the ingredients into a blender with ice cubes and blend until the ice is crushed. Scoop the frozen mixture into a large stemmed wine glass.

Garnish with sugared or fresh rose petals.

PURPLE SPRING – refreshingly light and sparkling with the unusual notes of beetroot

2 oz. Brockmans Gin

2 oz. Beetroot juice

4 oz. Wild Berry Cider

Add Brockmans and beetroot juice to a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a stemmed Copa glass (bowl glass) filled with ice. Top with Wild Berry Cider and give it a gentle stir. Garnish with a very thin slice of dehydrated beetroot and edible flowers for a touch of spring.

“These romantic and elegant cocktails are perfect for celebrating Valentine’s Day,” said Bob Fowkes, Marketing Director and co-Founder of Brockmans Gin.  “Brockmans, signature taste is created with a distinct blend of botanicals including blackberries, blueberries, coriander, bitter-sweet orange peel and juniper berries. The result is a gin so smooth it can be enjoyed on its own or as the signature ingredient in classic and contemporary cocktails.”

Brockmans Gin was awarded Gold Medals in three prestigious international competitions including the inaugural Global Spirits Awards, the 2017 SIP awards and the 2017 International Craft Spirits Awards.
