Welcome to our cocktail corner, where the essence of Dubrovnik meets the art of mixology. Today, we’re excited to share a recipe that captures the spirit of the Adriatic Sea – the “Adriatic Breeze.” This cocktail is a refreshing blend of our signature Dubrovnik Republic Gin, complemented by the crispness of cucumber and the tang of lime. Perfect for a relaxing day by the sea or a serene evening at home.
- 5cl Dubrovnik Republic Gin
- 2cl Fresh Lime Juice
- 2cl Elderflower Liqueur
- 4-5 Thin Cucumber Slices
- Sparkling Water
- Ice Cubes
- Cucumber Ribbon & Lime Wheel (for garnish)
Prepare the Glass: Start by chilling a highball glass. This ensures your cocktail stays refreshing from the first sip to the last.
Muddle: In a shaker, gently muddle the cucumber slices with the lime juice. This releases the cucumber’s fresh flavor while blending it with the zesty lime.
Mix: Add the Dubrovnik Republic Gin and elderflower liqueur to the shaker. Fill it with ice and shake well until the mixture is chilled.
Strain and Serve: Strain the mixture into the chilled highball glass filled with ice. Top it off with sparkling water for that extra fizz.
Garnish: Garnish with a cucumber ribbon and a lime wheel. The cucumber adds a touch of elegance, while the lime wheel complements the drink’s citrusy notes.
Conclusion: The “Adriatic Breeze” is more than just a cocktail; it’s a sensory journey to the heart of Dubrovnik. Each sip is a blend of tradition and innovation, much like our beloved city. We invite you to try this recipe and experience the refreshing taste of the Adriatic. Cheers!
