Cocktail recipes from Zymurgorium for a Summer of Celebration

Zymurgorium Group, the prolific Manchester-based distillery and creator of award winning, never before seen gins, liqueurs and rums, has created the perfect list of summer cocktail recipes. Keen at-home bartenders can shake and stir delicious tipples throughout the warmer months using the northern distiller’s exciting range of gins, rums and liquors.

Summer 2022 will mark the return of ‘normal’ for many of us and so these recipes are designed to be served at parties and celebrations.

With a nod to Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne, master mixologists at Zymurgorium have also created three recipes to serve at street parties across the country to mark the occasion; the Violet Queen, a regal blend of Zymurgorium Sweet Violet Gin Liqueur and Rose Lemonade; the Jubilee Lemonade, a showstopping mix of Electric Raspberry Gin Liqueur, Grenadine and Blue Curacao to emulate the colours of the Union Jack and the Majestic Violet, using the Zymurgorium Original Gin and Zymurgorium Sweet Violet Gin Liqueur, a recipe for the more adventurous home bartender.

Whether your cocktail preference is classic or outrageous the team behind Zymurgorium have you covered. Using their own expertly crafted gins, gin liquors and rums there is a summer serve for everyone.

The Manchester Swizzle combines Zymurgorium Original Manchester Gin (one of their OG’s) with tastes of the Caribbean; Coconut Water, Falernum and Lime Juice for a refreshing summer spritz while the Lychee-Tini combines Zymurgorium Mandarin Gin, with Lychee Juice, Lime Juice and falernum.

For those with a sweeter tooth the Manchester Chocolate Mai Tai pays homage to the original and is an indulgent choice with Zymurgorium Choc-o-Block Gin shaken with Pineapple Juice, Lime Juice and Orgeat Syrup and for those with more fruitier tastes the Raspberry Smash is a delicious concoction of Zymurgorium Raspberry Gin, fresh Raspberries, Crème de Framboise, Mint Leaves and lemon juices.

Showcasing their range of Gin Liquors recipes include the Fruit Salad Punch, a retro mix of Zymurgorium Fruit Salad Gin Liqueur, Pineapple Juice and Mango Juice while the Pink Pornstar is a glamorous twist on the classic combining their Pornstar Martini Gin Liqueur with Vanilla Vodka, Lime Juice and Grenadine.

Cane Toad Rum is the newest addition to the Zymurgorium family and simply made for balmy summer evenings. For a burst of summer fruit try the Ruby Hard Shake, Cane Road Ruby Eyes, Strawberry Puree and Strawberry Liqueur. Completing the trio is the Spiced Peach Iced Tea: a refreshing mix of Cane Toad Khanage Wars Indian Spiced Rum, Crème de Peche, Lemon Juice, Sugar Syrup and tea.

The entire range of Zymurgorium gins, gin liquors and Cane Toad Rums are available to buy from the Zymurgorium Group’s sales website
