Put a Little Spring in Your KORBEL
The shift to warmer weather is upon us, and so is the opportunity to put a little spring in your drink. Celebrate the season of lighter colors and longer days by incorporating touches of spring into all of your favorite cocktails. From floral elements to fruit juices, there are endless ways to celebrate this time of year with KORBEL.
Floral Ice Cubes
Add a little color to your cocktails by making ice cubes infused with flower petals. Simply fill an ice tray with water, sprinkle the petals over top, then freeze. Once the ice cubes are set, use for bridal showers, drinks with friends, or even just an evening on the porch.
Like flower petals, fruit slices are an easy garnish that speaks to the season. Choose a fruit that complements your cocktail, then slice, style, and serve. This touch will contribute to the look of your drink, while also packing an extra punch of sweetness.
Fun Fruit Juices
Refresh your cocktail by substituting a new juice for an ingredient in one of your go-to drink recipes. Make a mimosa with pineapple juice instead of orange juice for a refreshing change of flavor. Other fun fruit juices that pair delightfully with KORBEL include grapefruit, mango, and strawberry lemonade. Experiment this season to discover a new favorite sparkler!
More Savory Sprigs
Looking for something a little less sweet? Try completing your sparkling cocktail with some more savory sprigs. Simply select a favorite herb, cut off a sprig or two, then place at the edge of your glass. Rosemary, mint, and basil are all easy-to-find choices that will bring another dimension of flavor to any drink.
No matter which touch of spring you select, the KORBEL Mango Breeze is the perfect cocktail to use as a base for all of your seasonal creations.
