Do you like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain?

5 min read

I am pleased to let you know that getting caught in the rain is not a requirement for liking Piña Coladas. We have sourced recipes for some of our favourite cocktails, which just so happen to include the main ingredients for some of our best selling fragrances, for you to try out at home. 

PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY

 

Piña Colada

Fragrances to match:

Parfum Nashwa · 88 Pineapples · Sicilian Limes

 

 

The Piña Colada gets a bad rap among cocktail connoisseurs. For years, it was the poster child of the blender boom, a symbol of poolside bars and booze cruises. But the tropical classic—a mix of rum, coconut, pineapple and lime juice—dates back more than a half century, when it was the drink of the day in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Our recipe silences the blender blades and instead calls for pebble ice and a nice sturdy shake.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Light rum
  • 1 1/2 oz Cream of coconut
  • 1 1/2 oz Pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz Fresh lime juice
  • Garnish: Pineapple wedge
  • Garnish: Pineapple leaf

Steps

1.     Add all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake vigorously (20-30 seconds).

2.    Strain into a chilled Hurricane glass over pebble ice.

3.    Garnish with a pineapple wedge and pineapple leaf.

 

Irish Coffee

Voulez Vous

 

Irish Coffee may not be the first coffee drink with alcohol, but it has become one of the most famous. Combining coffee with Irish whiskey, brown sugar and lightly whipped cream, Irish Coffee is a hot, creamy classic.

There are many tall tales about the Irish Coffee’s origins. The most credible version attributes the cocktail to Joe Sheridan, the head chef of the restaurant at the Foynes Flying Boat terminal in County Limerick in the early 1940s. Legend has it that when he first served it and was asked if it was Brazilian coffee, Sheridan cheekily replied that it was “Irish coffee.”

The drink was later made famous by Staton Deplante, who worked at the Buena Vista Cafe in San Francisco during the 1950s. Deplante wrote about the drink frequently in a travel column that was read widely across the States and piqued curiosity about Irish Coffee.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounces Irish whiskey
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • brewed coffee, hot
  • Garnish: whipped cream
Steps

1.     Filling an Irish Coffee mug with hot water, let sit for 2 minutes, then discard the water.

2.    Add the whiskey and sugar to the glass, fill with the coffee, and stir.

3.    Top with an inch of unsweetened lightly whipped cream.

Margarita

Fragrances to match:

Sicilian Limes


The Margarita is one of the most popular cocktails in North America—for good reason. Combining the tang of lime and the sweetness of orange liqueur with the distinctive strength of tequila, our classic Margarita strikes all of the right keys.
Although many people reach for premade sour mix, we highly recommend using fresh lime juice. The end result is—let's face it—superior.

When talking Margaritas, it’s easy to get lost in stories about who invented the drink or get mired in debates over salt versus no salt; blended or frozen; triple sec, Cointreau or Grand-Marnier. In our opinion, this version is the tried-and-true recipe for the best Margarita you can make. Memorize it, and you’ll always impress.


Ingredients

  • 2 oz Blanco tequila
  • 1 oz Fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz Orange liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Agave syrup
  • Garnish: Lime wheel
  • Garnish: Kosher salt

Steps

  1. Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice, and shake until chilled.
  2. Strain into the prepared rocks glass over fresh ice.
  3. Garnish with a lime wheel and kosher salt (optional).

 

Mojito

Fragrances to match:

Sicilian Limes

 

To many people, the Mojito represents the perfect rum cocktail. The origins of the drink can be traced back to Cuba and the 16th-century Cuban cocktail El Draque, named for Sir Francis Drake.

Appropriately, almost all of the ingredients in the Mojito are indigenous to Cuba. Rum, lime, mint and sugar (derived from cane juice) are mixed with soda water to create a refreshing classic cocktail.

The Mojito is traditionally served over ice in a highball glass and often associated with summer. Like your cocktails with literary references? You’re in luck. The Mojito is said to have been a favorite of Ernest Hemingway.

While the Mojito is slightly more labor-intensive than other cocktails because it involves muddling the mint, the end result is a delicious, refreshing cocktail that can be enjoyed any time of the year.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 oz White rum
  • 3 Mint leaves
  • 3/4 oz Fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz Simple syrup
  • Club soda, to top
  • Garnish: Mint sprig
  • Garnish: Lime wheel

Steps

1.     Lightly muddle the mint in a shaker.

2.    Add the rum, lime juice, simple syrup and ice and give it a brief shake.

3.    Strain into a highball glass over fresh ice.

4.    Top with the club soda.

5.    Garnish with a mint sprig and lime wheel.

 

Espresso Martini

Fragrances to match:

Voulez Vous

 

If you’re looking for a pick-me-up post-dinner, the Espresso Martini is here to jolt you awake with its boozy magical powers. The cold coffee-flavored cocktail mixes vodka with espresso coffee, coffee liqueur (usually Kahlúa) and simple syrup. Garnish with a few coffee beans, and it’s picture perfect.

British bartender Dick Bradsell invented this now-classic drink, a.k.a. the Vodka Espresso, at Fred’s Club in London in the late ’80s. Legend has it that Kate Moss asked for a drink that would “wake me up and then fuck me up” at the same time, and the Espresso Martini was the result.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz Coffee liqueur
  • 1 oz Freshly brewed espresso
  • Garnish: Coffee beans
