The Beet Cocktail
How often have you heard of beets being used in a drink? Probably not often but surprisingly it works quite well. Paired perfectly with Plymouth Gin, lemon, and mint, this mixer has a subtle fresh- from-the-garden taste. Whether roasted, blended, muddled or made into a syrup, beetroots offer incredible flavours, stealing the limelight of the drink.

This is a rather odd cocktail combination but is undoubtedly delicious. The headlining contribution to this envisioned recipe is a syrup made from fresh eucalyptus leaves and it does sound great especially if you’ve got a bit of a stuffy nose or you feel like you just need some clarity but is the Eucalyptus Martini for everyone? Probably not, but it's worth a shot as your taste buds may surprise you.

The Caipirinha from Brazil
This Brazilian cousin of the Daiquiri features cachaça, which is a spirit distilled from sugarcane. Caipirinha is a perfect party starter in midst of summer evenings and has become a global cocktail, popular in nightclubs and beach parties around the world. You just need to practice the pronunciation, so the bartender understands exactly what you want. Wink!
