Let’s start with one of my favorite cocktails – the Dirty Vodka Martini!
Black Cow Martini
Created by Chef Mark Hix, this is the ultimate dirty martini; strong, salty and sweet. Beautifully presented in a mini martini glass, pour your own from a little jug that nestles in a glass of ice.
- 50ml (1 3/4 oz) Black Cow
- Dry vermouth
- 5ml (1/6 oz) olive brine
- 1 large olive to garnish
Pour the Black Cow, splash of dry vermouth and olive brine into a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice and stir. Strain the contents of the cocktail shaker into a chilled glass and add the olive.
If a Martini doesn’t get your taste buds going, a number of different cocktail recipes available on Black Cow’s website, from basic to advanced, there’s a mixture of classic and unique recipes to suit all!
Four pillars gin + juice
If you want to enjoy a delicious cocktail at home, but don’t want the fuss of complicated ingredients, this is the ideal recipe!
- 45ml (1 1/2 oz) Bloody Shiraz Gin
- 100ml (3 oz) Cloudy Apple Juice
- 1 Lime
Mix gin and juice in highball over ice (if no Granny Smith Apple Juice, cloudy Apple juice will work just fine!). Garnish with a fresh squeeze of lime & enjoy!
Ocho Tequila Serafin
This fresh tequila cocktail will have you feeling like you are on a beach in Mexico straight from your own home! Perfect for those social distancing blues. Here’s what you need to create your very own.

Build the ingredients in a highball glass filled with cubed ice, adding the ginger beer last. Stir gently and mix and garnish with a lemon wedge!
Quiquiriqui Smokey Margarita
If margaritas are more your thing, then this is the recipe for you made with mezcal!
