I am a huge fan of all these brands and cocktails!! Please support them while you are housebound. Make these cocktails and report back on how it went by tagging the brand!!
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
